SASKATCHEWAN BLACK POWDER ASSOCIATION INC.
Welcome to the new Saskatchewan Black Powder Association website.
The S B P A was created to start a special hunting season for those who wanted to hunt with more traditional muzzle loading rifles. After successfully lobbying the provincial Government, the muzzle loading seasons for deer, both whitetail and mule deer, moose, and elk that we enjoy today were created. Since then the S B P A has gone on to become the umbrella organization for all kinds of black powder sports across the province. There are shooting ranges and clubs dedicated to shooting black powder as well as smokeless rifles and pistols of all kinds. At these ranges you'll find traditional side hammer muzzle loaders in the old Kentucky style, Hawkins , in-lines, Sharps cartridge rifles, Winchester High walls, antique military rifles including Sniders, and Springfields. The people you'll find shooting these antiques and reproductions are among the most knowledgeable shooting enthusiasts you'll find anywhere.
