Bell Wildlife Specialties Youth Turkey Hunt '17
Dan Bell and the great folks at Bell Wildlife Specialties hosted a Youth Turkey Hunt April 1-2 at their lodge in Harveyville, KS. This was the 15th year running that Dan and his staff have hosted this hunt for Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors.
We had 10 youths hunting and 4 of them tagged birds on a wet and raining weekend. But they all had fun and are eager to get back out and chase 'em some more!
I was talking to Dan about coming to our Bust-a-Clay event coming up in May to recognize him for all he has done over these past 15 years, not only hosting these Youth Turkey Hunts, but also having kids come and hunt deer are geese at his place...all at no charge to the kids or their mentors. Dan replied simply, "I'm just doing what I'm supposed to do...get more kids hunting!"
That statement sums it up perfectly...Dan is committed to getting more kids outdoors and is making it happen!
