    Does any one know if a calendar of the primitive biatalon shoots has been posted for this year (2018-2019)?

    Primitive Biathlon is moving over snow with snowshoes and shooting, for folks reading this thread who are unsure...
    A "woodswalk" where the participants run, instead of walking and the event is timed, with penalties for misses, is called a Seneca shoot, so don't overlook something called that if you're looking for a shoot and move fast event.

    This was in March this year, but they will probably hold it in March 2019, eh? https://www.crazycrow.com/site/event/st-lawrence-valley-primitive-snowshoe-biathlon/

    Smoke & Fire News is probably the best up-to-date reference for events including shooting events. https://www.smoke-fire.com/events-calendar.htm

    The Dalton Gang biathlon in Dalton NH is no more, the property has been sold. There is a gun club in NH that has the targets and may get up and running!

    That's too bad. Seems that these events are few and far between....

    Nit Wit. I went to a first ever biathlon at the Cheshire County fish & game club in NH last year. They said due to the good turn out they would probably have another one in 2019. It was held the Sunday after the Southern VT shoot. I haven't heard if they are indeed going to have a shoot this winter.
