Adventurous Portuguese Water Dog Wins Best

Black Belt Dog Photo Contest

 MONTGOMERY – Adventure abounds in Alabama’s Black Belt, and one special dog in Dallas County is no stranger to the region’s waters and woods. Rudder, a two-year old Portuguese Water Dog, recently brought home the most votes to win the second annual Best Black Belt Dog Photo Contest.

“From sporting dogs to everyday sidekicks, we know that the Black Belt provides excellent opportunities for adventures with our four-legged friends,” said Pam Swanner, director of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association. “We purposefully opened up the contest this year to include all dogs that were out and about in the region. Rudder is well known in the Selma area and is regularly seen on the Alabama River or walking down Main Street making him the perfect recipient of the top dog in this year’s expanded contest.”

Rex Jones, of Selma, submitted the photo of Rudder and noted that his pup literally goes everywhere with him.

“Rudder’s happiest place is on the water and he’s most at home on a boat,” noted Jones. “Living on the Alabama River, we are out there often but he also accompanies me around town to any of my sales meetings or general meetings throughout the day. He’s basically an office dog for us here at Cougar Oil.”

The Cougar Oil family was well-represented in the Best Black Belt Dog Photo Contest as the father of Cody Jones, who was the runner-up in the contest, also works at Cougar Oil. Cody submitted a photo of his young lab named Sadie. Rex Jones loved the competitive spirit he saw from Cody in the contest and is donating the prize package to the 13-year-old. Jones added, “I was so impressed with Cody and how he wasn’t afraid of the competition that I wanted to donate these winnings to him and his hunting dog, Sadie.”

The prize package is a personalized 100% cotton oil finished Shelter Dog Coat by Filson and a copy of Black Belt Bounty, an award winning deluxe hard-cover coffee table book that celebrates the traditions of hunting and fishing in Alabama’s famed Black Belt region—a retail value of $175.

Special Needs Angler Lands Best Fish Photo Contest

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Lake Eufaula is well-known as the “Bass Capitol of the World”, but it was crappie that helped seven-year-old Blakely Sweatt reel in the winning photo for this year’s Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association Best Fish Photo Contest.

Fishing with her grandparents on the sprawling Lake in Barbour County, Blakely hauled in several crappie throughout the day. Danny Waters, Blakely’s grandfather, fishes often on the Lake and submitted the photo of Blakely with her great catch.

Waters described Blakely as an enthusiastic young girl who never meets a stranger and loves to be outdoors, especially with a fishing rod in her hand. Danny and his wife have a fishing camp on Lake Eufaula and spend many weekends in Alabama’s Black Belt with their four grandchildren.

“There is nothing better than being outdoors with family. These grandchildren are the light of our lives, and we love experiencing the bountiful beauty of nature with them whenever we can,” said Waters. “Blakely does not allow her special needs to slow her down, she is active and passionate about life, and we were all thrilled when she won the contest.”

Blakely won a half-day guided fishing trip on Lake Eufaula led by local expert Tony Adams of ‘Gone Fishin’ with Tony’ as well as a package of lures and hooks donated by TTI Blakemore. The total value of the package was $350.

“We love seeing families and youngsters enjoying the vast recreational opportunities available within the Black Belt, especially during these times,” noted Pam Swanner, Director of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association. “Spending time in the great outdoors is so important, and the Black Belt is the perfect place to encourage a love and appreciation for nature.

Alabama Audubon’s First Annual BLACK BELT BIRDING FESTIVAL is Coming to Greensboro.

Come celebrate the birds of this historic Alabama region on Saturday, August 7th, 2021

GREENSBORO, AL, June 17, 2021—Alabama Audubon has announced plans to host a first-of-its-kind event, a festival celebrating the birds of the Black Belt, on Saturday, August 7th, 2021, in Greensboro, AL. Highlighting the birds, history, and culture of Alabama’s Black Belt region, the first annual Black Belt Birding Festival is the newest public offering from the storied conservation nonprofit’s Black Belt Birding Initiative, a program aimed at bringing the economic benefits of ecotourism to this stretch of rural Alabama.

“This region is a historic touchstone for the entire country,” says Audubon’s Black Belt Coordinator, Meg Ford. “The Civil Rights victories that took place here are widely celebrated, but the area’s unique ecology and fascinating bird populations are still a bit of a secret. This festival marks a big step toward changing that.”

The festival will feature field trips to experience the diverse habitats and birds of Hale and Perry County; indoor programs highlighting Black Belt culture and history; a vendor expo for local businesses, nonprofits, and makers; and much more. Christopher Joe, owner of the nationally recognized ecotourism company Connecting with Birds and Nature Tours, LLC, will offer birding tours throughout the day, and attendees will receive a keynote address from naturalist, poet, and Professor of Wildlife Ecology at Clemson University, Dr. J. Drew Lanham.

Founded in 1946 as the Birmingham Audubon Society, Alabama Audubon has since grown to become the state’s leading nonprofit promoting conservation and a greater knowledge of birds, their habitats, and the natural world. Alabama Audubon’s Black Belt Birding Initiative works to bring the economic and environmental benefits of bird-based ecotourism to one of the country’s most economically challenged rural areas.

A certified chapter of the National Audubon Society and an independent 501(c)(3) organization, Alabama Audubon’s mission is to promote conservation and a greater knowledge of birds, their habitats, and the natural world.

Five-Year Old Hudson Mathews Takes Home

Top Prize in Big Gobbler Photo Contest

 MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association is pleased to announce Hudson Mathews of Deatsville as the 2021 winner of the Big Gobbler Photo Contest.

Five-year-old Hudson harvested the turkey in Pike County while hunting with his father. The gobbler, which was Hudson’s first turkey, had a 10-inch beard and 1-inch spurs. Over the course of the photo contest, Hudson’s photo received more than 1,300 votes  and beat out nearly 20 other contestants to take home the top prize.

Hudson’s father Hunter recalled the special morning afield with his hunting buddy. “Though we didn’t hear any gobbling on the roost, we knew they were close as we had roosted them the evening before. Eventually, we saw some hens and a gobbler headed our way in a big field but were disappointed when a group of jakes ran off the tom. We decided that we would try to harvest a jake but right as we were getting ready, we heard a close gobble to our right. The tom had circled back and was coming into our setup. He closed to 5 yards from our blind but was spooked when the wind nearly knocked over our blind. Luckily, he was still in range when he settled back down, and Hudson made a perfect shot!”

Hudson Mathews has been awarded a limited-edition commemorative “Memories of Spring” box call produced together by famed Alabama turkey hunter Ron Jolly and turkey hunting legend Preston Pittman as well as the recently released book by Jolly of the same name.

“We are grateful to the participants in this year’s contest and know that many memories of spring were created in Alabama’s Black Belt throughout the season,” said Pam Swanner, Executive Director of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association. “Our region continues to be a place where families and young folks can enjoy high-quality experiences and we invite you to come to the Black Belt to create your own memories.”

The annual photo contest was open throughout turkey season as a way to further educate the public on the abundance of natural resources found in Alabama’s Black Belt region. To view all of the other contest entries, visit https://alabamablackbeltadventures.org/biggobblercontest/.

Big Buck Photo Contest Winner 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

First Deer for Seven-Year-Old Takes Top Prize in Big Buck Photo Contest

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The ninth annual Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association (ALBBAA) Big Buck Photo Contest drew nearly 100 entries and saw seven-year-old Roberts Griffin of Montgomery emerge as the winner.

“By all measurements, literally, it was a fantastic season for deer hunters in Alabama and across the Black Belt,” said ALBBAA Director Pam Swanner. “This region continues to live up to its reputation of producing quality deer year in and year out, and we enjoyed entries from nearly every county in the region – many of which were first deer or family outings that will live on as lifelong memories afield.”

Roberts Griffin was hunting with his father, Spears Griffin, in South Montgomery County over the Christmas holidays when he harvested the winning buck. The youngster had been practicing shooting with a .22 long rifle over the summer to prepare for the upcoming deer season, but nothing could have fully prepared him for what stepped into the field the day after Christmas.

As the hunt unfolded, a big bodied buck entered the back of the food plot about 30 minutes before sunset and began slowly making his way to within 100 yards. As the deer got within range, Spears helped the youngster overcome his buck fever and squeeze off a quality shot. The buck took off running out of sight.

The elder Griffin recounts, “We didn’t see much sign at first, and I could tell Roberts was beginning to lose hope. I did my best to help him stay positive. We took it very slow and ended up finding the first drop about 30 yards from where he had been standing. There wasn’t much to follow, but I wanted to teach him how to take it slow and properly trail a deer.” Roberts and his dad trailed the deer about 80 yards and ultimately found his buck in some tall grass just off of the field. “I can remember my father and I trailing my first buck when I was 9, and the range of emotions that I went through. I wanted Roberts to have a similar experience, and boy did he! Funny enough, I found myself reliving those memories and emotions as well.”

After the initial excitement subsided, they both realized that this mature, 220 pound 11-point buck was no typical first buck. With receiving the most votes in the contest, Roberts will take home an original 16×20 whitetail buck photo mounted on canvas by award-winning and nationally credited wildlife photographer Tes Jolly along with a $100 gift card to Bass Pro Shops.

On winning the contest Spears noted, “What a special moment for both of us and what a first deer. Our family is blessed with many memories afield and we take pride in our conservation and management practices to ensure a healthy deer population and quality experiences with family and friends.”

Hunting is a family affair for the Griffin’s as Roberts twin brother, Spears, also harvested his first deer the following week. An impressive 200 pound 9-point, this trophy buck will also be proudly displayed with a shoulder mount in the boys shared bedroom next to his brother’s buck.

Jake Hornsby Wins Big Gobbler Photo Contest

Youngster’s First Turkey Special for Family

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – With the close of another turkey season, Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association is excited to announce 14-year-old Jake Hornsby of Reeltown as the Big Gobbler Photo Contest Winner for 2020.

Jake’s photo received 460 votes and edged out nearly 30 other contestants to claim the title. Additionally, the bird was Jake’s first turkey which was called in by his father and harvested with his grandfather’s Remington 870 making it a true experience they will never forget.

Jake and his father, Brandon, hunt in Lowndes County and have been hunting together for 10 years. In recounting the story, Brandon noted “The one we ended up taking weighed 12 pounds, had a 4.5 inch beard and 1/2 inch spurs. There weren’t any super tight expensive chokes, high end turkey loads or professional calling involved. Just a 14-year-old boy with an old, worn out, passed down shotgun with a factory full choke, some cheap Remington turkey loads and some amateur calling from his dad. When we went back to gather up all of our gear and head out, Jake looked at me with the biggest smile and said “Daddy, I love deer hunting, but this turkey hunting…ain’t nothing like it!”

Jake Hornsby has been awarded with a National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) framed and doubled matted Lynch and Gibson turkey box calls print (limited edition) by Melissa Gayman Ball donated by the NWTF Alabama Chapter. He also received a newly released book titled “Memories of Spring” by avid outdoorsman Ron Jolly and wildlife photographer Tes Randle Jolly.

“Each year the region’s hunters never fail to showcase some of the finest turkey hunting opportunities in the country with their successful hunts,” said Pam Swanner, Executive Director of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association. “Additionally, we know it’s really the time afield with family and friends that’s embedded in our outdoor heritage and traditions.  Seeing young people experience the bounty of the Black Belt is one of the many reminders of why this region remains so special to so many.”

This year’s contest had just shy of 30 entries of successful turkey hunts throughout the Black Belt region. The contest was open throughout turkey season as a way to further educate the public on the abundance of natural resources found in Alabama’s Black Belt region.
