COFA’s members believe in passing to the next generations our values, skills, and pastimes. A Turkey Shoot is a great way to do all three at the same time.

The history of the COFA Kids’ Free Turkey Shoot
While watching a movie based on the life story of Sergeant Alvin York a World War 1 congressional medal (CMH) honor winner, there was a part in the movie where Alvin was in a turkey shoot as a young man. The turkey shoot took place in the hills of Tennessee. Several COFA members have seen this movie and we thought it looked like great event for our Kids’. COFA’s free Kids’ Turkey Shoot is for boys and girls from 8 to 15 years of age. We at COFA want an event that is fun for Kids’ and a learning experience for them as well.
This year we are planning to host 300 Kids’ shooting, with 200+ parents attending. COFA’s Kids’ Turkey Shoot event is growing to other states as well. We have COFA Kids’ Turkey Shoots in Wisconsin, and are planning on several other states next year.

How it Works
These kids will shoot a designated amount of BB’s at turkey paper targets to see if they can win a frozen turkey. The scorers will add up total amount of hits near bullseye to determine the winner. Boys and girls are put into age brackets of (8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15). COFA provides the BB guns so everyone has a fair chance at shooting. We don’t allow personal BB guns…just COFA’s!
Why We Do It
One of the purposes of the Kids’ Turkey Shoot is to get them involved in the outdoors and away from sitting on the couch playing with their electronics. Our kids today for the most part have no clue how much fun it can be doing great fun things in the outdoors. That’s what COFA does so well, it help families and individuals connect with each while doing activities in the outdoors, like Camping, fishing, ATVing, Hunting, Hiking, Biking, etc. Through COFA’s events like the Kids’ Turkey Shoot, fathers and sons reconnect and build their relationship with each other. Same with mothers and daughters…they reconnect as well. COFA’s ministry is to get families involved with each other while bonding through healthy events. The testimonies we have from families who attend COFA events and how it has changed the dynamics of their family are amazing stories.
