The EE-DA-HOW Long Rifles was organized in 1962 by a group of muzzle loaders who wanted to promote muzzle loader shooting and engage in competitive shooting with muzzle loading firearms. Since 1962 the EE-DA-HOW Long Rifles has diversified to other competitive events which are based on vintage firearms. EE-DA-HOW  sponsor’s the annual Idaho Black Powder Cartridge Rifle State Championships as well as the Idaho “Cowboy Lever Action Rifle” Silhouette State championship. EE-DA-HOW sponsor’s the Idaho State and Territorial muzzle loader matches annually. In addition we sponsor monthly matches in Black Powder Cartridge silhouette, Cowboy Lever Action Rifle silhouette, smallbore silhouette, M1 carbine and Scheutzen matches. All matches are open to the public.

Most EE-DA-HOW events are held at Black’s Creek Public Shooting Range. Black’s Creek Range is Idaho public property belonging to Idaho Fish and Game. Black’s Creek Range is proudly managed by EE-DA-HOW per agreement with Idaho Fish and Game. No tax generated revenue goes to support Black’s Creek Range nor does Idaho Fish and Game subsidize range operations. Consequently, revenues required to operate Black’s Creek Range come from users and EE-DA-HOW. In return for operating the range, EE-DA-HOW is allowed to use the range for club activities.

As you can see EE-DA-HOW is a busy organization with a large responsibility. EE-DA-HOW depends on members like yourself to support your club through your participation in club events and work parties. It is the participation and work of EE-DA-HOW members that make this a great organization!  If you have any questions about the organization please feel free to contact any of the club officers
