2022 Season, 2023 Bookings
Our 2022 hunting and shooting season is in the record books. We are putting the ranch to bed for winter to reopen June 1, 2023.
A special thank you to all our guests and all those who work here for making 2022 another safe and successful season. Read the Testimonials section on the website to hear from our guests and their experiences with us.
Thank you for enjoying this special place and the shooting sports as much as we do.
Shooting Sportsman Article
We were very pleased to see Ron Spomer’s article on Lazy Triple Creek Ranch in the November/December 2022 issue of Shooting Sportsman. We hope you enjoy reading the article as much as we do. Read More.
We keep Five Stand open year-round for clays shooting or instruction with access by snow cat when the snow is too deep for the Rangers. Return on your cross-country skis or return in the snow cat on a game drive.
Groups can book the Lodge year-round when shooting or cross-country skiing for two days or more.
We are now taking bookings for 2023:
• Groups of six to eight for Cast and Blast.
• Multiple days on the clays courses from June 1 to August 31.
• Multiple days hunting upland birds from September 1 to early November. Preference will go to those coming for our signature event, European Style Driven Shooting with Western Sensibilities.
At the end of January 2023, we will be accepting bookings for groups or individuals who want to come for the day shooting clays, upland birds, European Style Driven Shoots with Western Sensibilities or long-range rifle and pistol classes.
In effect, we will be giving priority to those who come with groups of six to eight to stay two, three, or four days shooting clays, upland bird hunting, rifle or pistol classes, or Casting and Blasting. We are finding that is the best use of the ranch and the shooting we offer to preserve the private, exclusive nature of a very special place. As we have said many times, our objectives include not only commercial success.
We measure success not by how many clients we serve, but how much our guests enjoy this special ranch and the shooting sports and, of course, our health and firearms safety record.
That formula seems to be working. In 2020 we turned away 48 clients. In 2021 we turned away 61 despite adding 50% more walkup areas and rangers. In 2022, we stopped counting at 100. We do not like turning anyone away but keep track of these statistics to encourage everyone on our mailing lists to book early. Early booking means our regulars get the dates they want, and we get to better manage bird supply and staffing. Thank you for your understanding.
Cast and Blast: New for 2023
In cooperation with premier fly-fishing organizations in one of the premier fly-fishing locations in the world, we will be offering “Cast and Blast” experiences in June, July, and August of 2023.
