The DTML has had numerous range sites. The last old site, along the James River, burned in a fire (that site sat directly on Drifting Goose's reservation and home area). The current range is located approximately 15 miles south of Aberdeen. Landowner Lance Fuhrman allows the club to use an old tree claim on the corner of his field as we desire. The range has been in use since 1998 (?? - or close!) and has a 90-yard target/gong range, 75-yard primitive range, hawk & knife block, archery targets, outdoor fire pit, clubhouse, storage shed and outhouses. Not only is the site used for monthly shoots, but also for the annual Drifting Goose Rendezvous

Many people have donated time, materials and/or money since the range's inception. Most recently, the following individuals or businesses have donated in some capacity (beyond scheduled club clean-up weekends):

The current project of moving and completing the new clubhouse has incurred higher than anticipated expenses. The Dacotah Territory Muzzle Loaders are seeking monetary donations to help offset those costs. If you would like to assist (and have your name listed above!), please send your donation to:

Any and all donations are welcome and tremendously appreciated!
