Glasgow, MT muzzle loader turkey plank match
« on: July 29, 2013, 12:49:48 AM »
We held our second muzzle loader turkey plank match yesterday at the Valley County Rifle and Pistol Club range in Glasgow, MT.  We had 10 shooters which is a good turn out for us, this match seems to be catching on up here.  We have been using Steve Garbe's format from his matches in Cody, with a couple exceptions.  We shoot the match at 50 yards rather than 60 yards because we have target backers at that distance and I have not yet built portable backers for 60 yards.  We are not too strict on equipment as long as the rifle is a traditional style muzzle loader shot with patched round ball.  We shoot 10 shots with each shot being a seperate match, the winner being the closest shot to the center of the turkey head with the same target as Cody is using.

The weather was good but windy, a fairly steady 15-20 mph from 3:00.

Here are the results and a very limited equipment list:


 Jerry Ketchum -  1 match win, .58 cal  imported percussion rifle

Mike Otterberg- 3 match wins  .50 cal Hopkins and Allen sidehammer      Minute Man rifle Numrich Arms

Howard Pipin- 1 match win .50 Cal. Thompson Center   flintlock.

Gene Sipe- 1 match win , .45 Cal. Thompson Center percussion.

Vern Copenhaver -0 match wins .50 Cal Thompson Center percussion.

Emery Brelje -2 match wins .58 Cal Pedersolli  Enfield percussion.

Wes Scott-0 match wins, .50 Cal. Lyman Great Plains  percussion.

Kelvin Morehouse-0 match wins, .50 Cal. CVA  full stockpercussion.

Kent Morehouse- 0 match wins  .50 cal Pedersolli half stock percussion.

Mike Peterson- 2 match wins .50 Cal. Lyman Great Plains  percussion.

A good time was had by all.

Smylee Grouch(I'll bet you are not really a grouch!!)

Thanks for your interest in our match, it really is a lot of fun.

We have another turkey plank match scheduled for Sept 28 and would love to have a shooter from the East!.  Sept would be a good time for a trip to Montana, the fall is nice here and we have a new very nice rifle range.   We have various types of monthly club matches.  I have my e-mail address listed in my profile.  If you would care to e-mail me I would return your mail with a match schedule.
