With approval of a separate muzzle loading deer hunting season starting in 1991, many hunters started taking up muzzle loading. A club member, Larry Lapp, came up with the idea of having a youth muzzle loader shoot as a way of encouraging participation in the muzzle loading deer hunting season. Larry was not only a club member, but also an avid muzzle loader enthusiast. He participated in in pioneer reenactments, including being a member of the Fort Old Abe reenactments. He was a past president of the Wisconsin trapper's Association and instrumental in lobbying the the separate muzzle loader deer season, helping to preserve the hunting methods used by our forefathers. With the help of a NRA Shooting Sports Grant, the Menmonnie Rifle and Pistol Club held its first youth muzzle loading youth clinic in 1996. This has become a yearly event. In August of 2019, we held our 23rd Annual Youth Muzzle Loadiing Shooting Clinic.

The clinic takes place the second Saturday in August. If you are interested in muzzle loading or wish to have your child experience using a muzzle loader, the clinic is free (including lunch) for youths under 16. Parents of youths participating in the clinic are also provided the noon meal. All the equipment, and supplies are provided by the club. Instruction in proper handling, loading, and use muzzle loading rifle is available from experienced club members. Registration is the day of the event.
