Facebook. Love it or hate it, it’s where billions of people gather every day to engage with their communities, find new groups, meet like-minded souls, and pass the time. It was only natural that one day, a group celebrating the Kansan outdoor landscape and the hobbies of fishing and hunting would be created.

Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors answered the call. A non-profit organization matching adults with a passion for the outdoors with children that want to learn, they created a Facebook group for their Kansas Hunting and Fishing (KSHF) chapter. This group now has nearly 50,000 members since it was first set up in March 2019.

Being Part of a Larger Charitable Organization

Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors, the name behind Kansas Hunting and Fishing, has a mission to pass a love for the great outdoors on to the next generation. And while the mentoring efforts of Pass it On are not the main feature of the Kansas Hunting and Fishing Facebook group, the core values are ever-present.

The group’s purpose is to promote outdoor life and bring together hunters and fishermen in Kansas. Members of the group learn, grow, and share their experiences of fishing trips and hunts they have been on, and encourage each other to get out and experience life in the outside world.
