In honor of National Shooting Sports Month, it’s time to practice those shooting sports skills. The absolute best place to do this is by going to the Ranch at Rock Creek.
For the ultimate in taking a 5 star shooting sports vacation, you have to visit this luxury “dude ranch” in Montana. Of course, there are tons of other activities you can participate in on the ranch, but they have a long-standing tradition of shooting up in there in big sky country.
Here are some of the shooting sports they offer at this ranch style resort which would actually be a perfect family vacation.
Five Different Ranges On Site
The five different ranges on site include sporting clays, a rimfire range, a pistol range, trap & skeet shooting, and a rifle range. The targets are reactive and there is also competition style shooting available.
The guides make sure safety and fun are top priorities. They are able to give training and guidance to beginners, while making sure that top experts get the variety and challenge they need in each shooting-range. It’s nice that the courses were designed with both beginners and experts in mind. That way if you go with a group of friends or family, everyone will have appropriate levels of shooting challenges to participate in.
The Most Popular Shooting Activity
One of the most popular of all the shooting sports they offer is the sporting clays. This is located over their beautiful Mallard Pond. With five stands to try out on this course, you’ll notice that there are different combinations of sporting clay targets that mimic the wings of an actual bird. And if the weather is rainy or snowy, there is a covered stand with a wood burning stove to keep you comfortable while shooting. It’s definitely a luxury range experience anywhere you go on the ranch.
Other Activities to Try During Your Stay
Being on the shooting ranges can definitely be a big part of your stay, but there are also other “signature activities” that you can do at the ranch. There is horseback riding, archery, mountain biking, a ropes course, yoga, fly-fishing, and even a “Little Grizzlies Kids Club” for the little ones in your family. There are also nightly stagecoach rides, a bikini beach, pools, and fitness facility. Basically, you aren’t going to run out of things to do while on the ranch if you are game for some fun.
When you are ready to relax and refresh the Granite Spa is on site to pamper you. They have a variety of services, including massage, facials, and a cedar sauna. After a day out in the sun using the rifle range, you might be up for a “Fisherman’s Facial” geared towards the gentleman who likes to spend time in the sun, dirt, and rivers to rejuvenate the skin.
August is a Great Time to Go Weather-Wise
The Ranch at Rock Creek is an old school mountain man shooting adventure that is made for the family that wants a high end vacation too. It’s really exciting to be able to practice so many shooting sports in one very gorgeous location in Montana. Why not think about booking for next August?
