During the first winter the club decided to construct a club house and purchased two small log cabins. The following
spring the two cabins were placed together to re-build a larger cabin. During this period
emphasis was to promote deer hunting in the Pioneer Weapons Area and the increase of hunters was very rewarding to the founders
of the new club. Additional promotion of muzzle loading continued and the club was successful in acquiring additional hunting
days in the PWA gaining more recognition for the sport. Additionally the club has received state and national recognition
for conservation and preservation efforts. They have been named the Kentucky League of Sportsmen Outstanding Club, the National
Wildlife Federation Club of the Year and other similar awards.
The club has been in continued activity since 1966. Many
of the original members have passed on to a better hunting place but are missed by all of the brotherhood of black powder.
