Past Events & Activities 

Ice Fishing: 

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. 


Pheasant Shoot:

A cool fall day with temps in the 40s at Howard Reed?s Shady Game Farm awaited about a dozen youth and many volunteers on Saturday, October 9th. 2021 as the KAMO Northwoods Chapter held its annual pheasant shoot. We were blessed to have Tom McLain join us with his dog Raider to help put up some birds, as well as members from the 4H group out of Iron Mountain who assisted with a hunter safety refresher and shooting clays. The kids spent the morning shooting clays, and everyone had an opportunity at a pheasant as well. A bird cleaning demonstration and a chili 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! 

Hooked on Fishing:

On July 10th, 2021, 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 22 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: Whistlers Outdoors, Fence Sportsmans Club, Demuris, Leffs Sports Bar & Grill, Bobs Midland, Trees for Tomorrow, Pats Foods, Jackie Dallagrana, and Tom and Jody Harrison. 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!
