O.A.K. Scholarship & Grant

O.A.K. Memorial - June 8, 2016, our Grandpa Otto "Poley" Kaatz passed away at the age of 93. Grandpa was always highly supportive of KBL, and regularly traveled long distances to join us on various trap lines. For years, he made our solid and adjustable wooden stretchers. He was a lifelong outdoorsman and craftsman, and was always strong of hand and character. To honor his legacy, we are offering two new opportunities in the form of a $500 memorial scholarship and a $500 entrepreneur’s grant. - Kyle
