F.V. Muzzle Loaders was Chartered in 1960 when several like minded residents of the Fox Valley came together to form one of Wisconsin's oldest and finest gun clubs dedicated to the sport of muzzle loading firearms. This encompassed not only shooting, but the building of the firearm and its historical significance.
In the beginning, meetings were held at member's homes, but soon land was leased near Black Creek, WI. A shooting range, and log structure were built. Unfortunately, this only lasted a short time, as the land owner did not renew their lease, sending members to search for a new location. As luck would have it, the members found a 40 acre parcel of land for sale, and promptly purchased it. This is our present location, about four miles south of New London, WI. We have a wonderful shooting range (25-, 50-, & 100-yard bunkers), an enclosed shelter, range shed, tool/wood shed, primitive camping area, modern camping area, and beautiful hard wood and pine forests.
Our April through October monthly meetings are held at the range, on the first Saturday of each month, following the monthly shoot. In the colder months of November through March, our meetings are held at Lucky Dogz Bar in Neenah, Wisconsin. In addition to the monthly shoots, we also hold a summer Picnic, Fall Primitive Rendezvous, and the Sportsman's Rummage Sale in December and March. Our membership usually numbers between 40+ to 50+ members.. Interested parties please check our membership and contact pages for information.
