If you like traditional shooting with black powder firearms, or know someone who does, then you might be interested in the public Spring Shoot planned by the Alabama Hunt Club later this month.

According to Bob Smith, who is on the board of directors of the hunt club, there will be target matches for all black powder muzzle loaders, including flintlock, percussion, in-line and bench guns. The shooting range is from 25 to 200 yards.

The Spring Shoot will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Satruday, May 21, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 22, at the club, located at 1857 Lewiston Road in Basom (near Oakfield, ZIP is 14013).

The club is trying to preserve the traditional shooting of black powder firearms and it also supports the conservation of wildlife. In fact, it has a section of land set up for that purpose.

For more information call John at (716) 714-5514 or Sam at (585) 297-7747.
