2017 description: 'This program packed SHOOTING itinerary will give your crew an opportunity to shoot all three disciplines (shotgun, rifle, & black powder) that Philmont’s beautiful Central and South Country have to offer. Start your trek by reloading and shooting your own 12 gauge shotgun shells at Harlan. From there, enjoy the hike to Deer Lake and test out several new climbing routes at Cimarroncito. Hike to Upper Sawmill on a lightly traveled trail in Sawmill Canyon. Enjoy the gorgeous canyon, and reload/shoot .30-06 rifles when you arrive at Sawmill. Work on a trail project with the Conservation Department at Whistle Punk Camp, and spend the night there. Get up early to take on the challenges of Comanche Peak and Mt. Phillips. From Mt. Phillips western summit, views of the Moreno Valley, Wheeler Peak, and Baldy Mountain will be a prized reward for the hard work that it took to get there! Enjoy firing .50 caliber black powder rifles with the Rocky Mountain Fur Company at Clear Creek. At Beaubien, you'll be able to test your roping skills, eat a chuckwagon dinner, ride horses, and kick back for a cowboy campfire. Side hike down to Black Mountain to blacksmith and shoot .58 caliber muzzle loading rifles with post-Civil War Union Soldiers. Next, hike over Trail Peak to check out the B24 bomber that crashed on top in 1942. Continue on to Aguila, where one of Philmont's finest sunrises awaits. Stop at Abreu for a cold root beer and experience the Mexican homestead before making your way to Zastrow for the night. Eat a delicious Dutch Oven dessert and enjoy the Rededication to Scouting Ceremony. The final leg of your journey will include a hike along the Rayado Creek to tour western pioneer Kit Carson's home at Rayado. Learn about his adventures before making the triumphant return to Base Camp!'
