Notice to those clubs or individuals sponsoring sanctioned shoots.
A change has been made to the description of the target used for the M-7 smoothbore match. It previously stated X,10,9,8 rings black and should have said X,10,9 rings black. If you run this match please check that you have the correct targets.

Come visit the WMLA table at the Echoes of the Past Trade Fair
this weekend in Oshkosh.
The Coon Valley Conservation Club's winter pheasant hunt at Badgerland Pheasant Farm. Again the Roethel’s were fantastic hosts and the birds were more than challenging for our smokepoles. Hunters pictured are Royce, John, Paul and Mark. We will do it again this fall on the third Sunday morning in September .
There are a number of instances where members of the association do not have up to date contact information. This is often with life members. The chairman of the membership committee, Charlie Brown, is asking that if any association members know of anyone who may have moved away or not updated this information, please contact him. A Badger State Quarterly, that has been returned as undeliverable, will not be mailed again to an old address. See membership page
Welcome to the Wisconsin Muzzle Loading Association
The association was started in 1982 by a dedicated group of individuals who envisioned a need to keep the black powder tradition alive. Thirty five years later the association is still going strong and groups through out the state gather to shoot matches or celebrate the traditions of the rendevous.
If you are a member, thank you for your support. If you are not, come out and join us at an event or better yet become a member. We are always happy to see new faces.
See Membership page for contact information and a membership form.
