Youth Pheasant Hunt:
A cool and soggy day at Howard Reed’s Shady Game awaited fifteen youth and many volunteers on Saturday, October 5th as KAMO Northwoods held their annual pheasant shoot. We were blessed with three fine dogs this year along with participation from the 4H group in Iron Mountain, who are hoping to start a group in Florence this coming year. Brian from 906 Outdoors filmed the event , which aired on Discovering the week of October 14th (see video below, KAMO portion starts at minute 17:27). A special treat this year was homemade elk chili provided by Matthew and John Johnson. Clays, ammo, birds, knit hats, lunch and more ammo were all provided at this free annual event. Thanks for all those who helped make this a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the fall season!
Saturday, September 7th the Northwoods KAMO chapter treated seniors from the Golden Living Center in Florence to a day of fishing at Fisher Lake. This year marked the 4th year of the event, and eight seniors were able to participate. We were very fortunate for great weather, fresh air and lots of fun!

Hooked on Fishing:
On July 13th, a beautiful day awaited a great group of children, volunteers, parents, and guardians for the annual Kids Hooked on Fishing outing at Lake Emily.
The grounds were manicured, the fish cooperated, and the mosquitoes took the day off. A highlight of the event involved making discarded fishing line containers to be placed at local county boat landings to recycle fishing line and keep it out of the the waters.
A special thank you to Whistlers Outdoors for donating the bait, the Land Conservation Dept for their goodies, our financial supporters, and the fleet of boat captains from Lake Emily who take everyone out fishing. Thank you all for making it a great day!
Congratulations to Sierra Thomas, Florence Class of 2019, winner of our 2019 scholarship. Sierra will be attending the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point in the fall to pursue a degree in natural resources. Congratulations, Sierra, and best of luck to you!
