Archery & Black Powder Rifles

Learn the skills that your ancestors had with a Bow and Black Powder Rifle. The archery and black powder activities take place at Badger Creek, nestled in the mountains outside of Tetonia. We have traditional recurve bows to use. Try your hand at shooting the burlap elk or lifesize deer target. Then try your skills at shooting different targets with a black powder rifle. Learn to measure black powder, apply shooting cloth, place lead ball and use the ramrod to pack it all in the barrel. Small and Large targets will be placed to challenge your skills. Transportation, rifles, supplies, safety glasses, safety earplugs, targets, arm guards, quiver, bows, arrows and experienced leaders are provided.
