Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors is partnering with KDWPT to provide opportunities for youth to get outdoors, hunting and fishing!

Wildlife Manager, Rob Riggins reached out to Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors to share that he had 3 Youth Anterless Deer hunts go UNFILLED for the weekend of  September 14th-15th at Grand Osage Wildlife Area. As many of you know, Grand Osage Wildlife Area is immaculate and certainly falls onto the "bucket list" of hunts.

 We have the opportunity to fill 3 tags which is actually 6 tags/6 youth with how the special hunt is wrote out.  I am contacting you today to give you the opportunity to commit to this hunt with a youth + a friend to go hunting.  Please consider giving your time to give out Kansas youth a hunt of a lifetime.
