Bear Fork Hunt Club held their Annual Black Powder Shoot Feb. 12. First place winner was Charlie McKown, club president, 2nd place Howard Williams, 3rd place Steve Ellyson, and 4th place Nathan Dickey.
An interesting tidbit was Charlie, a 66 year old man, hand built his traditional muzzleloader with open sights.

Only a few members attended the event, but a great time and fellowship was had by all. After the shooting match the group feasted on a home cooked meal of brown beans, fried potatoes and corn bread.
The Annual Shotgun Shooting Match will be held February 19th beginning at 10 a.m. at the Bear Fork picnic area. All members are invited to come and join in on the fun. A meal of chili and sandwiches will be served after the match.
