A Good Cause to Support
There are lots of organizations out there getting kids outdoors besides Pheasants Forever. I have to admit that one of my favorites is Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors, Inc. out of Wichita, Kansas. This program reaches so many young people who would not normally have a chance to go hunting, fishing or camping. The primary audience is kids that are in the Big Brother Big Sister programs around the country. Many Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever chapters have partnered with Pass It On Outdoor Mentors to offer pheasant hunts and other outdoor experiences. I serve on their board and applaud what they do.
Right now they are having a chance-of-a-lifetime auction to raise money for their programs. Beginning at 1 p.m. EDT on December 5, Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors will be auctioning a spring 2012 Kansas turkey hunt, with lots of goodies, on GunBroker.com. The winning bidder will hunt for three days with Jim Zumbo and a youth on the Z Bar Ranch in south-central Kansas. This is an all-expense paid hunt, including tags, licenses, travel and lodging. The auction will be featured on the GunBroker.com homepage for seven days. Here is a link for more information: http://www.outdoormentors.org/zumbohunt.htm
Please consider joining the auction. It will be a great trip to win for you and a young person in your life. Good luck!
