Blake Shelton gushes over his “absolutely amazing day” teaching kids to fish in a new video posted by Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation.

When he’s not battling it out on The Voice or recording his own hits, country legend Blake Shelton teaches local Oklahoma kids to fish – and loves every minute of it.

“It doesn’t matter if you come from the perfect family or you come from where things aren’t perfect. No matter what the situation is, the outdoors are out there and it’s for everybody to experience and everyone is equal when it comes to the outdoors and their connection with it.”

So says Blake Shelton, wildly successful country music artist and longest-running host of hit show The Voice. Aside from these accolades, however, Shelton is still an Oklahoma country boy. So much so, in fact, that he’s Board Director of the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation.

Our initial report on Shelton’s fishing program details the incredible work that Shelton’s doing in his home stake of Oklahoma:

“In an ongoing program with Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation, Shelton is continuing to pass on the art of fishing to some much-deserving fans: local children.

The Fostering Outdoor Oklahoma Families partnership continues!” reads the Foundation’s Facebook page. According to their post – Shelton, who is a Oklahoma native, is passing around kindness with a wonderful new collaboration. Along with several great volunteers, The Voice star is inviting local foster children to learn how to fish. But these kids aren’t just learning how to fish anywhere. With his own ponds stock-full of fish, Shelton aims to teach fishing on his own farm. Not only how to fish – but to fillet and cook their catches, too.”


Blake Shelton: “Take a kid fishing!”

Taking to Twitter, Shelton gushes over how much he loves the program. “If you ever get a chance to take a kid fishing you gotta do it,” he says. “This was an absolutely amazing day.”

From there the country star shares a link to the Foundation’s new video of his day of teaching. It is immediately apparent how much fun Shelton – and every single one of these foster kids – loved this day.
