Cowboy Action Shooting


Welcome to the Old West!

Kerr Scout Ranch at Slippery Falls has a rich heritage rooted in the American West. Located in the Chickasaw Nation, the area has a history of Native American culture, lawmen, bandits, cattle thieves, ranchers, and settlers.

Program Concept

The program offers a fun and safe introduction to cowboy action shooting with firearms typical of those used in the Old West: single-action revolvers, lever-action rifles, and shotguns. While attending camp, Boy Scouts and Venturers 14 years of age or older can take part in a special shooting experience with opportunities to shoot single-action .22-caliber revolvers, lever-action .22-caliber rifles, and 20-gauge coach shotguns.

The program provides a fun immersion in old-time shooting scenarios where youth take on the persona of the “good guy,” shooting at targets to prove their shooting accuracy. Western dress is encouraged!

Participation Requirements

Boy Scouts and Venturers who are over the age of 14, or are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, may participate in this activity. All youth participants are required to have written permission from their parent or guardian before they can take part in the program.
