AG Composites Supports Oconto River Kids
AG Composites, a veteran-owned manufacturer of premium composite rifle stocks, has begun enthusiastically supporting Oconto River Kids (ORK), a Wisconsin-based non-profit volunteer charity group dedicated to providing hunting and fishing opportunities for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
“When AGC’s Matt Tandy asked how the company could help ORK, we advised of our need to set up one of our shooting systems with a shorter stock, one that would fit 12-year old Cain, a smaller-framed shooter who has been battling cancer for six years now,” said Brandon Baudhuin, Oconto River Kids Western Hunt Coordinator. “AG built, inletted, and sent that youth stock our way in short order. After a quick stock swap on our Bergara Premier Mountain 2.0, we had a rifle that was perfect for Cain. It was really that simple. The fit was perfect and Cain was soon shooting tiny little groups with it at the range — and later harvested a tremendous antelope and bull elk in the high desert of Wyoming. AG Composites was amazing with their monetary support of our mission and equipment support for this hunt of a lifetime.
“In the three years that Oconto River Kids has been operating in Wyoming, our youth hunters have harvested 20-plus big game animals, with about 60 percent of those using one of our AG Composites outfitted rifles. We cannot thank this veteran-owned company enough for their continued support.”
“Oconto River Kids is the kind of organization that our company believes in,” said Matt Tandy, AG Composites owner. “These young people have been dealt a tough hand, and any way we can help make their lives better is something we enthusiastically support.”
Oconto River Kids began in 2012 with a landowner who envisioned a local volunteer group providing hunting and fishing opportunities for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. He contacted the local DNR Conservation Officer, who shared a passion for mentoring young hunters. They immediately recognized the possibilities and identified other key individuals who shared their vision and passion. That group of individuals dedicated themselves to the idea and moved forward to create Oconto River Kids. The group continues to grow, but maintains its simple grass roots approach to providing unique hunting and fishing experiences for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. In 2014 Oconto River Kids reached a milestone when it was incorporated as a non-for-profit corporation in the State of Wisconsin and now operates as a Wisconsin charitable organization.
