I started volunteering this fall in a program called South Dakota Youth Hunting Adventures. It is a program that matches kids who are interested in hunting but have no one to take them with experienced mentor hunters. I have gone out several times with my mentee and had a great time passing on the love of hunting. It was cool to help him get his first buck last week. It was a spike,one shot through the boiler room at 175yds with a 270 and the deer dropped without a step. I’d highly recommend mentoring a young hunter if your state has a program like this, it is well worth your time. I have three kids of my own and one is old enough to hunt this year and it has been so fun that I thought I should sign up to be a mentor and help other kids whose dads can’t or won’t take them.
