Cross Trail Outfitters Crystal Coast

Cross Trail Outfitters Crystal Coast CTO Crystal Coast is a youth hunting and fishing club for boys and girls ages 7-20. We are "Guiding the next generation to Christ through the outdoors."
(3)

The Crystal Coast Chapter serves the youth of Carteret and surrounding counties. Many kids today are unfamiliar with the outdoors. Cross Trail Outfitters (CTO) is changing that by providing an opportunity to get them outdoors and teach them about our hunting and fishing heritage, while sharing our faith. We want kids to know that life is different than what they see on TV or in video games. There’s a life out in God’s creation, and CTO is all about “Guiding the next generation to Christ through the outdoors.” We provide the mentorship, training and assets for kids to go hunting and fishing, while ensuring a wholesome and fun environment in which participants can grow in knowledge and reverence of God. CTO is for boys and girls ages 7-20, offering a wide range of year-round outdoor activities. There are also opportunities for families to participate in some CTO activities. Outings and events are open to both members and non-members; however, by becoming a member of CTO North Carolina, you can help us grow across the state.

We had an amazing trip fishing the spring striper run on the Roanoke River this weekend! This was a first for all who attended and I believe everyone is hooked. We enjoyed some great cooking and warm hospitality from our hosts Jerry and Darlynn. When we weren’t on the river, the boys were fishing in the farm pond, shooting s***t or practicing archery. We had some great campfires where we discussed how to resist the temptation of peer pressure by studying Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." The second night, we also spoke about being the light of the world and helping to bring others on the right path. Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." It was a great weekend and we look forward to making it an annual event.

We were blessed with calm seas and some great fishing today. The CTO youth enjoyed catching Bonito early and some really nice Grey Trout throughout the morning. They also reeled in bluefish and sheepshead. It was a great day on the water!

Heading out to enjoy a morning on the water. Hopefully the fish will cooperate.

We had a great time building wood duck boxes and bird feeders Saturday. The youth got to take the bird feeders home and we will install the wood duck boxes in the next few weeks. James walked the kids through the different types of wood, showed examples of several types and spoke about the uses for each kind. We shared a devotion about Jesus and Joseph being carpenters and spoke about how Jesus moved on to building the church of which he was the cornerstone. We read several Bible verses but one sort of wrapped it all up, ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭3:10-11‬ “By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

We had a fun duck hunt this morning with the younger CTO Crystal Coast youth. Had lots of swan fly by and the loons were liking our spot. Unfortunately the ducks were flying high and didn’t cooperate. It certainly didn’t stop this crew from have a good morning out in God’s creation with some good scouting for next season.

Looking for a way to prepare that tundra swan meat? Tundra swan meat cooks and tastes more like beef than waterfowl or poultry. The trick is to cook the meat in a way that prevents it from getting tough. This is our favorite swan dish which is easy to cook and is a big hit with young and old alike.

Swan and Mushrooms over Egg Noodles
Step 1 - Trim the swan breast meat from one swan and slice into small cubes.
Step 2- Brown the meat
Step 3 - Add browned meat, 1 package Lipton dry beefy onion soup mix, sliced mushrooms, 1 can garlic cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup red wine and black pepper to the crock pot or Insta Pot.
Step 4 - Cook in crock pot for 6 hours on low or cook in an Instant Pot on high pressure for 35 mins, natural release.
Step 5 - When finished cooking, stir in 1 cup sour cream.
Step 6 - Serve over wide egg noddles and enjoy.

Thank you to all who planned, scouted, guided and made this hunt possible. Now this crew is headed to NagsHead for a duck hunt before heading back to Carteret County.
