Past Events & Activities
It was a cold fall day with morning temps in the 30s at Howard Reeds Shady Game Farm. A little snow and misty rain did not deter eight youth and many volunteers on Saturday, October 15th as the KAMO Northwoods Chapter held its annual pheasant shoot. We were blessed to have some fantastic dog handlers and dogs join us, Tom McLain and Raider, Dan LaBeske and Echo, and Terry Gerard and Gunner, to help put up some birds. Members from the 4H group out of Iron Mountain volunteered as well, and assisted with the hunter safety refresher and clay shooting. The kids spent the morning shooting clays, and everyone had a few opportunities at pheasants as well. A bird cleaning demonstration and lunch followed. The clays, ammo, birds, hats, and lunch were all provided at this free annual event. A big thank you goes out to all those who helped make this a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the fall season! This event would not be possible without the hands and hearts of many volunteers. We would also like to give a big thanks to Howard Reed, Tom McClain, Dan LaBeske, Terry Gerard, Tony Erickson and Alex Erickson.
Hooked on Fishing:
On July 9th, 2022, a perfect weather day awaited a great group of children, volunteers, parents, and guardians for the annual Kids Hooked on Fishing outing at Lake Emily! This year we had the pleasure of taking 18 kids out, and enjoyed lots of catches and smiles all around!
We would like to thank the following people, businesses, and organizations for their support and donations, without it this event would not be possible: Appearances Plus, Buckman Labs, Camping in the Clouds, The Chuckwagon, Dina Mias, Florence Motors, G & G Logging, Jacobson Logging, Lake Emily Lake Association, Leffs Bar, Northern Lights, Roadhouse 139, Saloon #2, Tavern on Central, Whistlers Sport Shop, Tom and Jody Harrison, Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, WIKB Radio, and many other anonymous donations.
A special thanks to our grill masters who served up a wonderful lunch, and the fleet of boat captains from Lake Emily who took everyone out fishing, and snapped a bunch of photos! Thank you ALL for making it a great day!
On Saturday, February 19th, KAMO Northwoods hosted an ice fishing event in conjunction with Leff?s annual fishing derby. It was a gorgeous winter day, full of smiles, food, sunshine and even some fish! The KAMO chapter purchased entries into the derby, and two of the kids tied for second place in the bluegill category! It was the most kids that we?ve ever had participate in an ice fishing event and was a great success thanks to all of our volunteers and donors.
