Lolo Trail Muzzleloader Club Spring Fling is May 2
By Dusti Howell
The Lolo Trail Muzzleloader Club would like to invite shooters, spectators and traders to our black powder, patched and round ball firearms Annual Spring Fling shooting event on Saturday, May 2.
The event is held at Wolverton’s Cabin, 2852 Wells Bench Road, Orofino, and the start time is 10 a.m. The fee to participate in the shoot is $7 per person.
Prizes for the top three Mountain Men, Mountain Women, and Young Trappers will be awarded. The main events are a rifle and pistol trail, hawk and knife throw, and rifle paper shoot. Extra points are awarded for dressing in 1800 attire, but doing so is not mandatory.
Our other event is our “running deer.” This is a moving deer target and the fee is $1 per round. The winner gets half of the pot!
After the shoot there will be a potluck, with the club providing barbequed hamburgers and hot dogs. Please bring a side dish, beverage, and your chairs. We will present the winners and draw for the door prize.
We will also be selling drawing tickets at six for $5 dollars or $1 each for a Thompson Center .54 caliber muzzleloader rifle (pictured). The winner’s name will be drawn July 19, at our second shooting event of the year, our 39th Annual Rendezvous. This event is July 17-19 at Reggear’s Tree Farm, Loseth Road, Orofino.
LTML can’t wait to see all of you there!
