This sport is dedicated to the preservation and practice of extreme rifle accuracy. Small groups are the talk of every match, as well as that shot that "got away."
Rifles used are custom-built, single shot, bolt actions that you really need to see to believe. If you have a tricked out rifle that you would like to compete with in any of the registered matches, call us or show up on match day.

This sport consists of shooting muzzle-loading rifles, pistols or shotguns that utilize either a percussion-cap or flint ignition system.
Those wishing to shoot inline muzzleloaders are also welcome to come and fire their modern smokepoles.
It brings back the nostalgia of the "Good Ole Days" prior to the advent of breech-loading firearms that use cartridges. Many of the sports enthusiasts dress in period costume, such as those worn by mountain men, fur trappers, and Native Americans of the past when attending an event. Come on out and join us for a fun and relaxing get together.
The High Plains Muzzleloaders club hosts matches the 1st Sunday of each month. We are a hearty bunch and will shoot in the driving snow and wind.
