Pay it Forward - Introducing Today's Youth to Hunting
Author: Katie Seacat
Nov 11, 2010
For most of us, there was an important someone who helped ignite our passion for hunting. It may have been your father, your best friend, maybe your Grandpa... but whoever introduced you to hunting gained a special place in your memory and in your heart. Below, we hear from Kendall Martin and her mentor, Dan Harrison. Kendall recently took her first elk and it was the encouragement and guidance of Dan that led her to this accomplishment.
Congrats Kendall on a beautiful elk! And many thanks to Dan and individuals alike who are passing the torch and introducing newcomers to this lifestyle we love so much.
Some of you know me, most don't. I'm Dan Harrison from Colorado Mountain Adventures and The Best and Worst of Tred Barta. I have introduced over 300 youths to hunting in my short outdoor career. During this time I have had the pleasure of meeting a few select youth hunters. One particular young lady I want everybody to meet is Kendall Martin. I have had the great fortune to be able to take her on three big game hunts. Throughout these hunts she had excelled in all aspects of hunting. This young lady will and should be a leader in this industry. She shines in the face of adversity! I am so honored to introduce you to Miss Martin. You go girl!

The opportunity to get to go on this elk hunt was in itself, a fun adventure, but to shoot my first bull elk also, now that's an experience! I'd never been so excited to do something like this before! I can still see it, the bull was calmly walking through the aspen, Dan whispered to get ready and sight him in. The next thing I heard him say was "shoot him." Not two seconds later, I shot the elk! This was an experience of a lifetime. I couldn't have done it without a mentor like Dan.

A big 'thank you' to Dan and Sitka Gear for mentoring and helping youth hunters. We are very proud of Kendall. She is so special.

I would like to say "thank you" to Dan Harrison for his time, efforts and kindness in helping our youth continue and grow in hunting. Also, to Sitka Gear for there generosity for this program. Kendall will go far in what ever it is she sights in, but it sure helps to have great mentors.
