Grab a rod and reel and hit the outdoors.  That’s the kind of day that sounds pretty perfect to 15-year-old Hunter.

“Last year, we went salmon fishing. My biggest salmon was a 52-pounder,” he said proudly.

“I like fishing, but I hate eating the fish,” he admitted. “I can clean them, but I just don’t like eating them,” he smiles.

 And his passion goes beyond just a casual hobby.

“I want to own my own bait shop,” he added. “I’m going to fix fishing poles and reels and sell bait and hunting and fishing licenses.”

He likes school work – especially when it involves computers.

“I completed a 9th grade computer class in less than 6 months,” said Hunter. “I like math, but algebra is kind of hard.”

“I’m kind,” is the way Hunter describes himself. 

He’d like his forever family to be kind as well.  He’d really enjoy it if they’d like to be outdoors a lot, too.

“It would be better by the water or woods or by a lake or something,” he said when dreaming of his future home.

“I want to do fishing and boat rides, hiking, and camping and stuff like that,” he added.

“What I’m looking for in a family is to help me out. I want to be adopted, but I want to get to know them first,” he said.
