Jonathon you would absolutely get tired of living there. The brutal winters for one, the other is unless you pick a town to live in having to drive hours for groceries, gas or supplies. But if you live in town it doesn’t have that wide open range freedom feel. Working on projects and need something, then forget something else By the time you get back home. Everything is more expensive. Yes it’s beautiful and relaxing, it definitely has its positives and negative’s.

Pass it on Outdoor Mentors is an organization that our guest, Mike Christenson has worked for for a few years and they specialize in getting underprivileged children out into nature to experience hunting. This might be the first, or only positive interaction most of these kids will have with firearms or hunting and it helps change lives.
They also have the Gun a-week raffle where they draw a winner every Wednesday to win a firearm! Tickets are available at the above link.
Mike was an excellent guest and some of the stories he tells are both entertaining and emotional.
Having Dylan, Brett and Kurt on was great, they are great people and made great guests, but if you listen to or watch just one of our podcasts please make it this one. Then, if you can get involved and help Mike and the Pass It On organization!

No tears here, but is a great story.
Jonathon Actually I lost over TWO hundred lbs…but who’s counting?
Great story and Mike is absolutely right. A mentor can have a huge impact on a youth. I’ve seen it many times as an adult leader with the BSA when my boy’s were working there way through this program. I haven’t done any outdoor mentoring but this was basically the same thing. But then again I was there for my three when it came to hunting and fishing.
As Mike said it’s an amazing feeling when you get the feedback and see a youth grow, learn and mature. You know that perhaps you helped this person to succeed.
