South Dakota State Cowboy Mounted Shoot results

LENNOX, SD – On Aug. 6-7, cowboy mounted shooters from South Dakota and Nebraska found themselves in a bit of a “border war” at the South Dakota State Cowboy Mounted Shoot (CMSA) hosted by the Dakota Territory Mounted Shooters (DTMS). Due to conflicting events, the shoot was moved to August so attendance was down. Despite the move, a great time was had by all, and it was the shooting, not the weather, that was hot this year.

Cowboy mounted shooting is basically “barrel racing” on steroids, with cowboys and cowgirls, often dressed in historical 1890s apparel, racing through a pole and barrel course shooting ten balloons along the way with their single-action .45 handguns or rifle. After the first five shots, competitors must holster their first gun and take out gun number two or their rifle. There are penalties for broke patterns, missed balloons and even dropped guns if not holstered properly. Only certified blanks are used at these events, and all guns are loaded and unloaded by a certified armor for safety.

The South Dakota ladies cleaned house this year, with Kelli Shryock of Wessington Springs, SD taking home the Ladies Express Buckle. Stacey Brouwer of Hartford won the Ladies Limited Buckle. Brouwer also captured the Rifle round, adding a second buckle to her collection.

The Nebraska men rallied and the Men’s Express Buckle was taken home by Butch Stackpole of Omaha. The Men’s limited was won by Jerry Salestrom of Tekamah, NE.

For the first time in the club’s shoot history, female competitors outnumbered the men! Eleven women ran the course, to the men’s nine. Nebraskans outnumbered the South Dakota home team by four. The fellowship was great and friendships were forged in this one-of-a-kind family horse event. Watch the CMSA Web site under “South Dakota” for future events.
