About LittleShots

Who We Are

LittleShots is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created for the purpose of teaching and forming a relationship with less fortunate children.

LittleShots partners with parents to have their kids:

  • Grow Life skills
  • Build Confidence and Perseverance
  • Master Independence and Leadership
  • Encourage Critical Thinking and Creativity

Together we prepare children to be in charge of their own futures.


LittleShots is dedicated to building outdoor skills of children between the ages of 8-16 enabling them to engage in outdoor activities and fishing opportunities, understand the importance of wildlife conservation management, learn to appreciate natural resources, and preserve our fishing and hunting heritage.


LittleShots approach is to teach respect for:

  • People
  • Nature
  • Plants
  • Animals
  • Land
  • Resources

To learn respect for these and before participating in activities, children will be involved in a community service project to equip them for success to help broaden their understanding of valuable things outside of their current interests and influences.


LittleShots was officially started in 2015 by Tony Laniewicz. Tony started the organization as a way for less fortunate children to partake in outdoor activities that typically would not be available to them.

He wanted to share his knowledge and years of experience as a hunter and fishermen while becoming a mentor to kids that may not have had a family member available to pass along the outdoors tradition. Through this experience, Tony has devoted his life toward helping kids so he formed the organization known today as LittleShots.
