Two records fall at 23rd annual Bullhook Bottoms Black Powder Club Spring Shoot

 


Eighty-two shooters participated in the 23rd annual Bullhook Bottoms Black Powder Club Spring Shoot held Memorial Day weekend at Fort Assinniboine south of Havre.

Two new records were set at the spring shoot. Bradd Cobb of Great Falls set a new record in the 25-yard pistol with a 98xx target. Cobb held the old record with a 97xxx set in 1986. David Thompson of Havre shot an 84 in the 50-yard pistol match, also setting a new record. Thompson bettered his old record of 77 set at the 2000 shoot. Both pistol matches are 10-shot events with a maximum score of 100 points.

Thompson picked up the Pistol Aggregate with 178 points on two targets. He also claimed the Cartridge Aggregate trophy with 128 points on three targets.

Clyde Byerly of Great Falls won the Cross Stick Aggregate with 215x. The Primitive Aggregate went to Noel Duram of Cut Bank with 115 points. Duram edged out three-time winner Cameron Griggs of Missoula by three one-hundredths of a second in the timed event to claim the honors. The Long Range Cartridge Aggregate went to Griggs with a string of three hits.


A special honorary plaque was given to David Molitor of Havre for his dedication and support of the Bullhook Bottoms Black Powder Club for the many years he has been involved in the sport.
