These proceeds will help rebuild the clubhouse which was destroyed by a lightning fire in July. Please contact a Muscoda Sportsman’s Club member or Riverdale Trapshooting Team member/coach for tickets.

    Yesterday, October 11th, Dad and I attended the National Trapshooting Day shoot at the Berlin Conservation Club. We had a great time and the folks were very accommodating.

    We wanted to thank the BCC Members for their donation to the Muscoda clubhouse rebuild effort and also everyone there who purchased calendar raffle tickets!

    Berlin Conservation Club is a great place to shoot, so please check it out if you have a chance!

    On behalf of the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club, Thanks again!!

    Unfortunately you will probably have to copy and paste the above link into your web browser since hyperlinks still don’t work on this website.

    Thanks to all those who attended, participated and donated! The day started off a little shaky with high winds and rain but after 8:30 AM it was a great day to shoot!

    The Muscoda Sportsman’s Club wanted to let everyone know that we have decided to cap the number of teams to 90. We are there now, with possibly 1 squad opening still available. Unfortunately that means we will not be able to take any same-day walk in teams.

    We apologize for having to do that but without a clubhouse it will be nearly impossible to finish the 90 teams we have by 7:30 PM. Then trying to figure everything out in the dark without a clubhouse will be challenging.

    If a team really wants to shoot we are willing to start earlier at 7:00 AM. If that is something your team is interested doing, please contact Virgil Bomkmap @ 608-475-0295 ASAP.

    We hope everyone understands and we look forward to seeing everyone! It should be a fun day with awesome shooting, great food, and raffles.

    Muscoda Sportsman’s Club 1st ATA shoot of the year will be held this Sunday, May 31st starting at 10:00 AM.

    The weather forecast appears to be a very favorable temperature with sunny/partly sunny skies.

    The inside of the club has been completely sanitized as well as all the seating, benches, and tables outside. We are asking that all participants and visitors still practice social distancing as much as possible if attending this shoot. We have added more outside seating (picnic tables) and will be limiting the inside seating to 2 chairs per table. We have also spaced the inside tables further apart than normal.

    We will have a slightly modified menu with lesser options (no hamburgers or deep fried cheese curds, sorry). We will also be eliminating self-serve food items and condiments. These items will still be available, but you will now have to ask for them and they will be handed to you.

    It has been a very long time since many of us have had a chance to attend an ATA shoot, so we are looking forward to seeing everyone and ask for your cooperation to help keep everyone safe.

    Unless something has changed since the last WTA BOD meeting in April 2019, it doesn’t appear as though The Butcher’s Block is coming at all. In the minutes, it says that since they are not coming that they are looking for an alternative vendor to help with Friday Night Fish Fry.

    I made a mistake in Denny’s obituary. He was the first Wisconsin resident in 56 years to win the Grand American Handicap.

    I wanted to share the obituary for Denny that will be printed in the local Muscoda paper. There will be more information about Denny’s trapshooting career in an upcoming Trap & Field edition under the Completed Careers section.

    I have know Denny ever since I was very young because he was at my parents house frequently when I was growing up. Denny and I my Dad (Virgil) were the most influential people that I knew in the trapshooting world and they are the reason I am still active in the sport and love it even today.

      I will miss Denny very much!!

    If there any questions regarding Denny’s Celebration of Life at the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club, please don’t hesitate to contact me @ bbomkamp@comcast.net or 630-750-1272.

    Dennis Taylor, 68, of Walworth, WI, formerly of Blue River, WI and Muscoda, WI passed away March 31, 2019 in Wauwatosa, WI with his family. Born October 3, 1950 in Blue River, WI to Gale and Trudy Taylor. After graduating from Riverdale High School in 1968, Denny attended the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Upon graduation from UW-Platteville, Denny worked several years for Wick Homes and traveled all over the country building new homes. In 1983, Denny married the love of his life, Ruth, and they moved to Walworth, WI where he had his own carpentry business.

    When Denny was growing up, the Taylor family owned a turkey farm just outside of Muscoda and they were also very heaving involved with horse showing but Denny’s real passion was trapshooting.

    Denny started trapshooting in 1970 at the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club. While attending UW-Platteville in 1972, he won Class A at the ACUI National Collegiate Trapshooting Championships and was asked to participate in the Olympic Trapshooting tryouts later that summer. During the next year in 1973, Denny made his first trip to the Grand American (Vandalia, OH) with Virgil Bomkamp and Norbert Hipenbecker, all from Muscoda, and subsequently won the Grand American Handicap World Championship with a score of 99×100. Denny was the first person from Wisconsin to win the GAH Championship in 46 years.

    Over the course of his long shooting career, Denny was also very active member of the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club serving as its President from 1975 to 1985. Denny was also very passionate about the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association and served on its Board of Directors, off and on, for over 5 decades. Denny was very instrumental in helping to make the new WTA home grounds in Rome, WI a reality. Denny was inducted into the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association’s Hall of Fame in 2013.

    In addition to being a great shooter and ambassador for the sport of trapshooting, Denny also liked to hunt, watch the Packers/Brewers and travel with his wife Ruth. Denny’s enthusiasm, laughter and love of life was contagious for all around him.

    Denny was preceded in death by his father Gale, and is survived by his wife Ruth, mother Trudy of Muscoda, brother Jerry (Laurene) of Mukwonago, brother Jack (Kay) of Lone Rock, and nephews & nieces as well as many friends.

    Per Denny’s wishes, there will be no service held but rather a celebration of life at the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club on Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

    Condolences or donations may be made to the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club or the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association.

    As far as I know, it is business as usual at Darien. They are shooting a full 10 week Fall League and they have ATA shoots scheduled thru October 2018.

    Some inventory was not liquidated, so they still have mostly trapshooting reloading components and shells available as well as some limited shotguns & accessories for sale.
