Buffalo Rifle Score Correction

Posted by jdavid on April 23, 2016 at 7:40 pm

There is a correction on the April 2016 Buffalo Shoot. The winner for the Big Bore is John Seniw, I gave the high score to Joe Catone where it should have been John S. Sorry Joe maybe it’s a sign that you will win one of the matches in the near future. The points all correct just assign the Winning score to the wrong line on the score sheet.

Buffalo Scores for April Now Posted

Posted by jdavid on April 16, 2016 at 7:25 pm

We would like to thank everyone for coming out today for our first buffalo shoot for the year 2016.  We could not have asked for a better day for the weather with the sun and no wind it made it a perfect day for our first shoot. Just as a reminder starting next month we will be now shooting five rounds per target. The money shoot will stay the same 1 fouling shot with five shots to follow. . Hope everyone enjoyed the new targets that Ed made over the winter. I think it gave everyone more of a challenge expectedly the one at 300 yards. We had two of our shooters hit it Dusty Ed and Rod so better luck next month maybe we can paint it black to see if we can have more hits.  Looking forward to seeing everyone next month including some new shooters that could not make it this month but will be out in May to join in the fun and camaraderie

First Buffalo Shooting Match April16th, 2016

Posted by jdavid on March 23, 2016 at 8:46 pm

We would like to welcome everyone to our first Buffalo Match on the 16th of April, 2016. We have a few changes this year. First the polls for the running buffalo were redesign by Dusty Ed over the winter this will make set-up and break down allot easier and faster.

Second you will see new small plates with an additional plate at 300 yards while still using Mr. Pig it will remain one point while the new small target will be two points same as the others so now a perfect score will be 40 instead of 36. Again I would like to Thank Mr. Ed for taking the time to work on this project over the winter months.

In short looking forward to a great year and seeing everyone on the 16th of April 2016. If you can try and spread the word around to help grow our monthly shoots that would be great .I know we have one or two new shooters for the year again let's try and get it up to 20 plus per month

To all our shooters have a Safe and Happy Easter

Jimmy D., Joey C. and Dusty Ed.

Cowboy Action Scores for March are Posted

Posted by rhunsinger on March 15, 2016 at 5:08 pm

Foul weather keep some of the Cowboys hiding back at their ranch but we had a good match any way. Mifflin Kid was doing fantastic until the last stage. Then with his Irons slingen lead didn't hit the right targets for some reason. Guess Dodge Bill changed up the scenario a little to much but not enough to stop Lead Slinger Leroy with a over all win. You would never guess it but Rushtown Kid Got a new Buck Board, Mules and cleaned the winters rust of his irons and finished with yet another clean match. Rumor has it that he gave his old mule "Nelly" to the score keeper. Congratulations Rushtown Kid for another clean match.
