Rusk County Safe Hunters Of Tomorrow (S.H.O.T)

S.H.O.T. is a group of Rusk County mentors dedicated to introducing the youth in the County to the outdoors, conservation, and safe firearms handling. They host activities such as mentored hunts, hunts for youths with life changing illnesses, youth outdoor field day, and other outdoor youth education activities. Check out their Facebook page for more information.


Their mission is to provide outdoor experiences to children including fishing, canoeing, camping, hunting, wildlife viewing and hiking. Mentors who have passed a background check are matched with children to help provide them with these outdoor experiences. Our goal is to give a basic introduction to the sheer joy of the outdoors to children who may otherwise not have an opportunity to do so. While there is a membership fee to Mentors, there is NO CHARGE to any child to participate in KAMO.
