The ranch is slowly emerging from its blanket of snow which means Steve and Corey will be working outdoors getting ready for our third season of welcoming guests to the best-kept secret in the shooting sports world.
If you are interested in half-day shooting Trap, Skeet, Five Stand, Simulated Driven, Grouse Butt, Crazy Quail, or the best 14 station Sporting Clays course anywhere, or hunting upland birds either walking our fields behind dogs or European Style Driven Shooting with Western Sensibilities or simply enjoying a private, exclusive corporate retreat or family retreat, you can help us greatly by booking early. Early booking allows us to plan staff and bird supply for the season.
We open June 1 for shotguns and clays until September 1 when we switch over to upland bird hunting (mostly pheasants including jumbo pheasants again this year with a few chukars); half-day walkups with guides and well-trained dogs and our signature event, European Style Driven Shooting in America with Western Sensibilities. Please book now if you would like to shoot with us with a group of six or more, if you would like to stay overnight in the Lodge, or would like to join one of our European Style Driven Shoots which are scheduled every Saturday from September 1 until the end of November or other dates for groups of up to eight.
Opportunities to shoot at Lazy Triple Creek Ranch are already close to 50% booked. All days between September 25 to October 21 are sold out. Six groups are wanting to book, have received proposals, but have not yet agreed to dates with all in their groups. We particularly encourage those groups to book soon. We turned away 61 guests last year and have already turned away 21 so far this year. We value the private, exclusive nature of a very special place over commercial success. Your group of six or more will have exclusive use of the Lodge during your stay. We recognize plans change and will apply deposits to later, available dates.
We are seeing price increases of 30 to 300% and shortages of all shooting supplies. We are fortunate to have clays in stock for at least three seasons and to have our ammunition bunkers and fuel tanks full for the 2022 season. Despite these challenges, we plan to keep prices unchanged for 2022. If we need to increase prices, we will honor prior bookings. Another reason to book early. Add 6% Idaho sales tax and 8% Idaho lodging tax to all prices.
Here’s what’s available for the 2022 season.
