The opportunity to speak before the House of Representatives about the “SHARE Act” was a big moment for me. Speaking on behalf of the unheard voice of children was a rewarding experience. I’m humbled that the message of access was heard and seriously considered. Hoping to continue to use this momentum to change the world even more in favor of youth.

I always take a minute to enjoy the view whether I’m 15 feet in the air, on the ground leaning against a tree or watching students leave from school. I get to see plenty of things both in the city, in the fields and in the water and I’m grateful for the bridge that I’m able to cross. I’m not sure what the future holds. What I do know is the view is going to be pretty special and appreciated no matter where I’m at.
I sometimes fight with myself about doing television shows with children. Our kids only get a small window of opportunity and if the cameras don’t work out a hunt could be ruined. Because I’ve worked so long with and their cameramen I’m tremendously comfortable allowing them to come along on our students trips. Well I’m glad they got to come this year because we had a tremendous hunt and fun at full fan lodge. Two turkeys with two cameraman will make for a tremendous show to be aired next season on Mossy Oak’s hunting in the country. Until then we got plenty of kids to help and lots of work to do.
Congratulations to my son on overcoming a tough situation to make his high school jv team. Many of you know that he worked his tail off since being cut last year as a freshman and now he can proudly wear a team hoodie wherever he goes. We never know what the future holds but I’m excited to see the doors that will open for my son and thekids.
At the POMA conference I got to prove kids, students, young adults all are cenetered in my lane. I find it funny that many people tend to think that talking to a youth for a few minutes will magically fix their percieved problems or issues. I’m very fond of people that adopt children becasue it officially shows they plan on being in that young life for better of for worse. I guess you can say my efforts are bulit around that concept. So here’s the open inviatation to visit with me and to talk with my kids about mentoring and being mentored in the outdoors. Anyone can take a kid hunting, shooting or fishing but when it comes to developing youth through those activites I’m calling out all of the paper champions and letting them know I have nothing to loose by calling your bluff.
John Annoni is the founder of Camp Compass, a program that brings urban students to the outdoors, hunting and fishing. He and his son Landon respond to reported comments made by gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg while speaking at the Aspen Institute. Bloomberg is reported to have said that cities must take away firearms from all young minority males, in order to reduce violent crime. As a young minority male, Landon provides his perspective on firearms safety, and talks about hunting and shooting. Originally aired on NRA News Cam & Co 02/10/15
