At Cherry Creek Lodge, you really can have it all! We offer a wide range of authentic dude ranch activities and experiences, including shooting, sporting clays, and archery.
For the hunter—perfect your aim. For the beginning shooter—try a little target practice.
All guests are required to take a brief course on gun safety before entering the shooting arena.
Lawyer Talk: As you know, target ranges, archery courses and shooting courses are hazardous in that loaded firearms and/or weapons are discharged not only by you but also by others. Before you shoot, you will be required to read and agree to abide by all Range Rules, and wear appropriate eye and ear protection. A signed acknowledgment and release will be required.
Beginning archers and experienced archers wanting to tune in their bow can take advantage of our standard block target archery range.
No practiced archer or archery hunter will want to miss the experience of a simulated hunt on our 3-D target archery course – It simulates real hunting conditions presenting a variety of target animals – everything from bear, elk and deer, to javelina and turkey – at a variety of distances – ranging from 20 to 50 yards, and in a variety of different terrains – from open terrain to wooded and up and down hills.
Since most modern bows are specifically fit to the archer, experienced archers will want to bring their own bow and arrows. No broadheads please. We do have recurve bows available for beginning archers, and experienced archers to provide instruction.
For the safety of all our guests, the archery range is only for ages 10 and up.
Beginners can learn the proper way to fire a gun and experts can brush up on their aim before a hunt.
Targets on the rifle/pistol range can be set at up to 100 yards (longer distances by special arrangement). All guests are required to take a brief course on gun safety before entering the shooting arena.
For the safety of all our guests, the shooting range is only for ages 10 and up.
Shoot at clay targets thrown from different angles, speeds, elevations and distances simulating hunting different types of game birds.
For the safety of all our guests, the shotgun range is only for ages 16 and up.
