Pintail's Ross Kester is an active participant in the Outdoor Dream Foundation as a youth mentor. The Outdoor Dream Foundation grants outdoor adventures to children or youth suffering from chronic or terminal illness. An Outdoor Dream Adventure hunt is focused on creating a safe, rewarding and successful event for the kids.
Ross enjoyed participating in the 10th annual Perry DeLoach Memorial youth duck hunt in Hartwell Georgia. The kids from the Outdoor Dream Foundation were each fortunate to harvest their first ducks, including several teal and a drake mallard.
In January 2020, Ross hosted the annual Quality Deer Management Association youth hunt at his family’s farm in Buffalo, SC. This was the first year that kids from the Outdoor Dream Foundation participated, and they were able to enjoy a lunch of hot dogs and venison chili before a shooting lesson followed by an afternoon in the deer stand.
