SCHEELS values the opportunity to connect youth with outdoor recreation activities and is excited to partner with COFA to host this Ham Shoot.
COFA believes in passing to the next generations our values, skills, and outdoor pastimes. A Ham Shoot (targets only, no live animals involved) is a great way to do all three at the same time.
Kids ages 8-15 will have an opportunity to use a B.B. gun on paper targets to win great prizes, including a Honey Baked ham (must be present to win). The award ceremony will be presented at 2:00 PM. Other activities include archery, outdoor education experiences, scavenger hunts, and more!!

The history of the COFA Kids' Free Paper Target Shoots
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 a great event for our kids. COFA's free Kids' Ham 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.
How it Works
The kids will shoot a designated amount of BB's at paper hog targets to see if they can win a Honey Baked ham. The scorers will add up the total amount of hits near the bullseye to determine the winner. Boys and girls are put into age brackets (8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15). COFA provides 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' Ham 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 fun things in the outdoors. That's what COFA does so well, it helps families and individuals connect with each other while doing activities like camping, fishing, ATVing, hunting, hiking, biking, etc. Through COFA's events like the Kids' Ham Shoot, fathers and sons reconnect and build their relationships with each other. Same with mothers and daughters...they reconnect as well. COFA's ministry is to get families to develop healthy bonds through outdoor events.
