The 41st annual Bullhook Bottoms Black Powder Club Spring Shoot held May 29-31 saw 88 shooters participate at historic Fort Assiniboine south of Havre.

The weather was excellent all weekend with temperatures in the hight 70s to 80's with a little wind off and on, but shooting conditions would be rated as excellent. Shooters came from all parts of Montana.

The 2020 Spring Shoot was canceled due to COVID, as were many events last year, so it was good to be back in the saddle and running a full blown event.

Robert Sparks, Havre, posted a perfect 12 hits in the silhouette event which included three targets at 50, 100, 150 and 200 yards, which was a tie for the recorded set in 1985.

Pete Huseby, Havre, cleaned house over the weekend capturing the Overall Aggregate trophy with a score of 198x in five matches including 25-yard offhand, 50-yard offhand, 100-yard offhand, 50-yard cross sticks and 100-yard cross sticks. Huseby also took the Offhand Aggregate with 117 points on three targets and the Cross Stick Aggregate with 81x points on two targets, 50 and 100 yards.

The Pistol Aggregate also went to Huseby, with 161 points on two targets, 25-yard and 50-yard both scoring a possible 100 points each.

The Women's Aggregate was claimed by Cara Pinder, Glasgow, with 116 points on three targets, 25-OH, 50-OH and 50 cross sticks.

In the black powder cartridge events, Kent Morehouse, Glasgow, won the Men's Cartridge Aggregate with 167 on four targets; Women's Aggregate went to Cara Pinder, Glasgow, with 148xx and the Junior Aggregate was won by Clint Owens, Havre, with 49. The cartridge events consist of four targets including 25-yard offhand, 50-yard offhand, 100-yard offhand and 100-yard cross sticks

Brad Bender, Havre, won the Primitive Aggregate event with a score of 150. The event includes 20 different fun shots such as cut a playing card, cut the strings, split the ball on ax head, frogs on a log shot from a canoe, and offhand, offhand shot - meaning if you are right-handed you shoot left-handed - drive the nail and several long-range shots. All targets are at various ranges.

The Long Range Aggregate for black powder cartridge was won by Don Klinko, Malta, with a string of three hits, turkey, ram and buffalo. This event consists of an offhand target at 270 yards and four cross stick targets a pig at 320 yards, turkey at 350 yards, ram at 380 yards and buffalo at 580 yards.

Hawk and Knife throw for adults was won by Andy Owens, Havre, and for juniors Stryder Owens, Helena, was the winner.

The Bonita Griggs Memorial Frying Pan Throw for women's division was won by Julie Sparks, Havre, 44 ft. 7 in.; seniors division went to Kemi Velk, Havre, 59 ft. 0 in.; juniors division was won by Arley Douglas, Marysville, 34 ft. 2 in.; pee-wee division went to Hadlwy Owens, Helena, 29 ft. 7 in.
