About The Range

About The Range

The popularity of the long range precision shooting matches and courses has risen sharply over the last few years and with that the demand to be able to enjoy these matches and courses has gone up as well. Matches typically fill up and sell out fast and can be daunting to shooters new to the sport. This is why we have decided to set up our private shooting range on private land that you can shoot and practice on with your friends and not have to worry about the big crowds that can come with the larger matches.

Whether you are new to the sport and want to try it out or an experienced shooter who wants to hone your skills, our shooting range has what you are looking for. Our focus for this shooting range is on fun and nothing is more fun than pulling the trigger! So our shooting range is designed to maximize your trigger time and less about classrooms or coaching.

Rates and Package

For those that want to extend their time spent on the range we have set up a shoot and stay package. This will take place primarily over the weekend that the match is scheduled for. As a shooter you can arrive Friday and sight in your rifles. A couple mock stages will be set as you won't be able to shoot the course stages until the Sunday match and we can go over stage flow and give instruction if needed. On Saturday you will be able to shoot the mini course and work on any stages that you wanted more time on. The complex would be open to all who books this package. On Sunday you would shoot the match alongside all of the other competitors and then stay at the Buffalo Butte Lodge afterward. Departure would be Monday morning after breakfast.
