Welcome Fellow Buckskinners
To the website of the Idaho Free Trappers, LTD.
We are a group of individuals who are dedicated to the preservation of the way of life that was experienced by the Pre1840's Buckskinners, Fur Trappers,
Traders and Native Americans.
As Period ReEnactors, we are constantly striving to be as authentic, realistic and true to the spirit of the Mountain Men, Women and Native Americans of this distinct period of American History. As such, everything we do is a completely faithful imitation of this era as humanly possible. Whether it is in our manner of personal dress, buckskinning skills, our lodges or perhaps the most visibly apparent articles we are known for: our muzzle loading rifles and pistols, knifes, tomahawks, as well as other weapons,
period tools and accoutrements.
The Idaho Free Trappers, LTD. is a family organization and all families are encouraged to attend. We have monthly meetings and shooting competitions as well as knife and tomahawk throws and/or a combination of all three. You don't need to be afraid to attend these monthly shoots as long as the weapons you bring with you are primitive in nature. Don't have a weapon!
Our members will be happy to help you out with one of our pieces if you'd like to try your hand at shooting one.
Even if you haven't a weapon, this shouldn't deter you from stopping by to see us compete amongst ourselves.
This can get pretty interesting in and of itself.
If you are interested in joining us by attending one of our monthly meetings and/or shoots, you may use one of the different contact methods available to you
on the " Contact Us " page. Even if you have never been around our particular type of organization, activities or some of the competitions we host, we will be more than happy to have you come out and participate, while also learning more about the way of life that we are striving so hard to emulate.
We expect all our participants to have a good understanding of firearm safety in order for them to compete.
