The black powder trail is for casual use and organized shoots. The trail is U shaped and is just over a kilometre long. The two entrances are located on the NW and SW side of the shot gun range. There are three activities done on this trail, muzzle loading pistol, muzzle loading long guns and knife and hawk throwing.
There are about 12 yellow targets for pistol or cap & ball revolvers & 30 red long gun targets. All targets are metal. They will swing and clang when hit, lots of fun. All members are welcome to use their muzzle loading firearms on the trail.
The black powder trail also has about dozen knife and hawk throwing stations. These are located on NW trail entrance. The knife and hawk throwing stations are completely safe to use, even if there is shooting being done on the trail. Bring your knife, hawk and kids and have some fun.
Each year there are two organized black powder shoots, one in May and the other in September. These shoots have a Western Canadian Fur Trade theme. There is even a primitive camp set up behind the club house. These shoots will have competitions in muzzle loading rifles, pistols, flint lock trade guns, knife and hawk throwing and primitive archery. Non SPFGA members are welcome to these shoot, but they must have their own liability insurance. Posters with all the information about these shoot can be found in the SPFGA newsletter and web site.
