Kids and Mentors Outdoors (KAMO)
KAMO and the Wisconsin Waterfowl Association are hosting a hunters education internet field day in Onalaska on April 4th. This is an opportunity to get a kid certified before turkey season the following weekend. Also,if there are any instructors who would like to get certified in IFD, this class can serve as an apprenticeship towards that. The GoWild site student - enroll has details. Like it or not, IFD is where the demand in the future is headed. I was an IFD skeptic I got the certification and have run a few classes and saw how well it works. It's all hands on except for the written test.
There was a meeting in Beaver Dam last week to discuss starting a KAMO chapter there. Twenty five people showed up. Our state convention is in Stevens point on March 21st.
There will be a meeting in Beaver Dam this week about starting a chapter there. Mark Walters would be the guy to talk to. His contact info is on the website - An Outdoorsman's Journal.
Some USFWS, DNR, U.W. La Crosse students, and KAMO mentors are teaming up to teach Angler R3 in the La Crosse area. The intent is to teach adults who never learned how to fish how to catch, clean, and cook fish. Our first classes are in February and we could use some more students.
Thanks Tim will check into them
jakman, check out the United Special Sportsmens Alliance. I donated mine to them several years ago.
What a great idea and organization Onalaskan. Well done. Get this kids outside.
Oalaskan I have roughly 10-11 bear points and was considering donating them to a disabled hunter. Can you please point me in the right direction to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated
KAMO is in need of an assistant for an upcoming large event. This requirement was thrown at us recently. Does anyone know of anyone?
The Kids and Mentors Outdoors (KAMO) group has its annual deer hunt near Poynette from Friday, December 13th (evening) - Sunday,December 15th (early afternoon). This year we are required to have a person with a medical background on site - that person would stay in the Mac Kenzie Center Lodge on call (during this time, they could do personal work - for example, bring in a laptop). It could be a doctor, nurse, physician assistant, practical nurse, athletic trainer, EMT, or a person who has completed the American Red Cross Emergency Response Course.This person would be provided transportation to and from the event site, free food and lodging, and would receive $150. That person would have to stay the entire time. They would be helping a great cause and would really enjoy the atmosphere. Contact Mike at 608-799-5037/ firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
