Here are some photos from LSSC’s Annual Meeting, 7May22. 



On Saturday, June 4th, the Lake Superior Sportsman’s Club (LSSC) completed another Hunter Safety course at the club’s facilities located at 31433 W State Hwy M64, near Silver City, Michigan. This was the first course we’ve offered after a two-year hiatus due to the many COVID restrictions and uncertainties. LSSC continued the “Home Study” course format for this year’s program. This format only requires one day of attendance for field exercises and a written test.


A total of 18 students completed the course and received their Hunter Education Certificates. Congratulations to each of them! There were 5 adults; 2 male and 3 female; and 13 youths; 10 male and 3 female. The course was taught by Certified Hunter Safety Instructors Walt Toepfer (LSSC), Steven Amsler (CO GLIFWC), and former instructors Guy Kitzman, and Chad Kitzman. The course consists of firearms handling instruction, live firing with .22 rim-fire rifles & 20-gauge shotguns, archery, a general review, and a written exam.  Upon the conclusion of the class, a drawing was held among the students for a hard plastic gun case suitable for a scoped rifle. The winner was Kirsten Sheffield.  Congrats to her!


Also participating and assisting with this event was Ontonagon County Sheriff Dale Rantala and MI CO Byron Parks. Additional assistance was provided by LSSC members Joe Kukanich, Bob Gustafson, Don Harris, and Rick Tessmer. Lake Superior Sportsman’s Club appreciates those volunteers that made this program a success.


No date has been set yet for LSSC’s next Hunter Safety course; however, once determined, it will be announced in advance and posted on the DNR website; the “Home Study” format will likely be used again. For further information on Hunter Safety or LSSC please contact Walt Toepfer (885.5334).

Our “Vision” project was officially approved by the State of Michigan on 12Apr22.

The construction contract was awarded to Moyle Construction on 20Apr22


The pre-construction meeting was held at 10:00 AM on Fri, 6May, at the LSSC facilities. 


Present were representatives from LSSC, the State, the state’s prime design contractor, NFE, and OHM, a sub-contractor to NFE, and the construction contractor, Moyle Construction.  The weather was great and the meeting was held outside rather than in the archery room as planned.


After the pre-con meeting, about 11:00 AM, a ground breaking ceremony was held at the new construction site.  Many of the same persons attended.

Below are some photos of the pre-construction meeting and the groundbreaking.
