If you enjoy making things explode, but don’t want to end up in jail to satisfy this urge, plan on attending this year’s Boomershoot event. It’ll be held Sunday, April 23.

The baby of Joe Huffman, Boomershoot gives you the opportunity to fire a long-range, precision rifle at exploding targets that are 375 to 700 yards away. There are over 1,000 of these targets, rigged with 1,500 pounds of explosives.

Sound like fun? Sign up online at entry.boomershoot.org. Use the discount code MANIACS for 30% off most events.

The event is held a ways outside Orofino, in an area known locally as Cavendish.

For more information, call 208-301-4254; email info@boomershoot.org, or visit www.BoomerShoot.org.
