The Mountain Men of El Jebel were formed in December 1977 by a group of El Jebel Shriners interested in Black Powder shooting and learn more about the Mountain Men era in America’s history. Many of the members have created their own 1847 Mountain Men attire, but this is not a requirement for membership. Our Mountain Men have put on programs at schools teaching students about the Mountain Men era. These programs are always well received by both students and teachers. The Mountain Men of El Jebel have gone on occasion to Bent Fort in southern Colorado and spent several days living the life as old 1800’s pioneers. This is always a great experience and education for the people visiting Bent Fort.



Lazy Heart Ranch -8189 Hwy 93 in Golden, CO  at 9:30 am. We hold scheduled Black Powder shoots on the 4th Saturday of each month, weather permitting. Our Ladies and guests are invited to all shooting and social events. We invite you to join us and share in some of America’s  greatest history.
