*SASS Rules Apply. Must be a SASS member to shoot this match. Raw time scoring. Registrations postmarked after April 1 need to include increased fees. (But are still welcome!) See Registration form for more details.

Because of the need to manage posse flow, we cannot accommodate shoot-throughs. However if there are enough shooters to necessitate morning and afternoon relays, it may be possible to assign a shooter to both a morning and an afternoon posse on the same day.

*Interested in being a Vendor? Here is the Vendor application form for 2012.  Questions? Email the Vendor Wrangler for details & signup. Other Calif events you may be interested in as a vendor.

Last year Camp fires were permitted in the camping area in a portable fire pit. We are not sure about this year yet. Watch this space for updates closer to the event date. The policy LAST YEAR was:
Fires must be in a container that holds fire off the ground.
Must have a screen / spark arrestor above the fire.
Area beneath the fire unit must be cleared of grass, debris etc. Please be safe & responsible!


Montego would be happy to repair any website issues

    2012- What a great shoot! Our first but not the last visit ot 5 Dogs Creek. One super shoot.

  • Montego says:

    We will have ice for sale through the Howling Wolf. Cost $7 per bag.

  • Montego says:

    Hey, the VENDOR list for this year has been posted here. Also available from the menu at top right corner.

  • Mad Trapper of Rat River says:

    Or possibly the MAD dogs. There’s plenty of them gonna be there!! Next year we otta have all the Mad Dogs, Mad Trappers and all other
    borderline insane people on one posse. Oh wait, that would probably take more than one posse huh. Just an idea.

  • Mad Dog Jack says:

    Hey Mad Trapper… You said “Shoot With the Big Dogs”, don’t you mean Shoot With the BAD Dogs?

  • Mad Trapper of Rat River says:

    To those wondering about the round count: it is stated in your confirmation letter. Now I’m worried, did you not get a confirmation letter from me?
    Please email me at and let me know okay? Round count is for 12 stages, 120 pistol, 120, rifle, 50 shotgun but remember we have a lot of side matches, plus some may have to Shoot With The Big Dogs on Sunday morning.

    Now to Anonymous> – – if you contact Sunshine Kid (again see email address in confirmation letter) I know she will happily provide you with a list of those who will gladly serve you and appreciate your business.


  • Anonymous says:

    I was wondering if we had a list of vendors??? So we can save some money to help support our vendors.

  • Allie Mo says:

    I am also wondering what the ammo count is.

  • B Haven Badly says:

    Is the ammo count available for State Championships?

  • Mad Dog Jack says:


  • Mad Dog McCoy says:

    Woof Woof , Arf Arf, The Dog Pack will be there!

  • Mad Trapper of Rat River says:

    Well now, it sure is good to hear and read all the favorable comments about our shoot. Hope you can make it Monterey Kid, (by the way my old 97 is still blasting away). Major Payne, side matches start early if yer shootin’ long range but main match shooting starts at nine. We have a terrific plan for a great shoot, now all we need are for you cowboys and girls to send in your registrations. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to write me at If I don’t have the answer I will find it or make one up. MTRR

  • DALE ALLEN says:


  • What a hoot of a shoot!, Great food and vendors! Lookin forward
    to a great time so make sure you bring plenty of ammo
    and a smile on your face……Yeeeee Haaaaaa!

  • Doubleshot says:

    Calling out all you “Bad Girls of Five Dogs” for an outlaw portrait at Bay ten on Thursday afternoon after side matches. Also looking for some cowboys (willin’ to be gently restrained of course) This will be a FUN ‘shoot’ I promise – or my name isn’t Doubleshot Darlin!

  • Major Payne says:

    What are the start times each day? Did I miss those? I came last year. What a blast:)

  • Ruthless Ray and Meaner N Me says:

    Ruthless Ray and Meaner N Me will be there also.

  • Reno Slim says:

    I had a great time there in 2011, so much that the Northern Nevada Gang is going to ride across the border to burn powder
    and sling lead down range with you all in 2012, shoot fast, shoot straight and be safe.

  • bo bean says:
