Preparation for Mountain Man Camp

In July, from the 11th to the 14th we are expecting 150 boys 14-16yrs old to enjoy learning about the Mountain Men in the Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Utah areas. We will have Black Powder contest, Axe throwing, Knive Throwing, Arrow Head making (flint napping), bow and aarow making and then a contest. Blanket shoots and blanket trading where you show your wares and others come to you and trade for pelts and bead and stuff. Kathy was about to shoot me when I asked her if she wanted to try throwing knives (in the living room). She is the woman! They stuck.
