Kids and Mentors Outdoors (KAMO)
Have received two phone calls from a group in Dane County that is willing to provide resource support to outdoors people in Dane County interested in starting a KAMO chapter there. It takes four people to get one going.
All I have to say is "Many were called, few were chosen".
Letter from parent. Sums up why KAMO exists, why mentors do what they do, and the results of long-term participation.
I wanted to share with you and all the other KAMO Mentors that Nathan got his 1st deer last night! No, it was not during a KAMO outing, but it NEVER could have happened without everything KAMO has done for him, AND myself. Hunter Safety on the Prairie for both of us, countless hours of mentorship, & leading by example!
He's had a great year duck and goose hunting as well.
Thank you so much for everything. I am quite certain as soon as he is able, Nathan will someday follow in your footsteps and be a mentor to other youth.

My prediction from this spring that this KAMO blog would be viewed 40,000 times by the summer of 2018 was proven inaccurate by you followers. It has been viewed over 40,000 times as of October 2017.
That's what I'm talking about!
All seven KAMO Chapters have been active this summer of 2017. Fall usually emphasizes hunting but other things as well. Check out our monthly newsletters at kamokids.org for our recent activities.
Our "Joe Hunt" at the DNR's MacKenzie Center near Poynette requires a lot of work from our Baraboo River and Poynette Chapters, but then when you take 20 or 30 kids out deer hunting, each with a mentor, there is a lot of organizing, snooping the area for willing landowners, and signing up kids and mentors!
