We shoot targets with muzzler loading firearms, throw perfectly good knives and tomahawks away at wooden targets. Archery, shotgun, and a heavy dose of laughing and socializing round out the mix.
For 30 years people have been gathering in the hills north of Kamloops, at a place called Heffley Creek. For 10 days at the end of August they get together to re-create the era of the the fur trade. More than that, we come together to laugh and play. Make new momories, watch each others kids grow up, try to catch a slice of life from when a persons word was their bond, and calling someone friend meant more like thinking of them as family.
