Kids and Mentors Outdoors (KAMO)
One of our mentors helped set up a raptor webcam in Sommers Chute this week. That chute is between Lake Onalaska and the Mississippi River a few thousand feet above the Dresbach Dam.The cam is live 24/7, so it's day and night.

20 participants at Saturday's trapshooting event south of La Crosse on private property. Safety instruction, a lesson about what to expect from the dogs over pigeons followed by clay pigeon practice, dogs pointing on pigeons, and then lunch. It was a beautiful day for it. The event was a preface for the upcoming duck season.
