First Hunt, Kingman, KS - 1/30/16

Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors hosted another First Hunt event on Saturday, 1/30 at Bluestem Hunting Preserve near Kingman, KS.

We had 15 new hunters in total, with some from Kingman and some from Wichita. The Kingman kids were mostly 7th graders who had taken hunter ed at the middle school in Kingman. The Wichita hunters had recently completed a class that Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors had helped coordinate for the FOP and their families.

Volunteers from Wichita PF, QF and NWTF chapters helped with the hunt, mentoring the new hunters as they walked the fields.
