Brian Opland, a member of Boilermakers Local 104 from Marysville, WA, had a cold day of fishing on January 15, 2012. Enduring the 25-degree temps paid off in the end after catching a nice sturgeon!

Contest | USA 3rd Annual Spring Turkey Contest
For us turkey hunters, the mere mention of spring sets our mind racing to the woods and the resonating sound of that big ol’ tom answering our calls. And the time has come to tune-up that shotgun, practice those calls, and submit your longbeard in the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance 3rd Annual Spring Turkey Contest.
If your practice pays off, you could find yourself the winner of some fancy new gear. All USA members who enter their turkey (legally harvested in North America during the spring 2012 season) will be entered in a random drawing for a Mossberg 535 Turkey THUG shotgun. Additional prizes will be awarded for the top scoring birds in four categories: Eastern, Merriam, Osceola and Rio Grande.

Conservation | Union Volunteers Enhance Walk-In Access in Washington
With populations of elk, deer, moose, bear, sheep, game birds and diverse fish species, Washington State offers phenomenal hunting and fishing opportunities. Last November, approximately 40 union members representing UA Locals 26 and 32 and IUPAT District Council #5 and their Joint Apprentice Training Committees teamed up with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to help protect quality hunting and fishing access by building and installing large gates on hunter walk-in access roads.
Events | USA Shooting Tour Visits New Orleans for First-Time Event
The 1st Annual USA New Orleans Sporting Clays Shoot didn’t have a record number of shooters, but the USA members that attended had an amazing day. Fourteen shooters and two spectators came out in the thick morning fog to brave the afternoon heat and humidity and test their clay breaking skills. USA National Events Coordinator Tim Bindl manned the BBQ grill cooking burgers and dogs for the hunger shooters returning from the course, and the USA staff learned quickly that, in New Orleans, boiling seafood is how BBQ is supposed to be done.
The HOA Individual award went to Johnny Sabathe from UA Local 60 who broke 54 out of 100 clays, and the team from UA Local 60 also took home the Lewis Class A 1st Place trophies with a combined score of 196. The team of shooters from IBEW Locals 196 and 130 nabbed the awards for Lewis Class B 1st Place with a combined score of 193, and IUPAT District Council 80’s team walked away with the awards for Lewis Class C 1st Place with a combined score of 192.
