Our River Ridge Story

Our passion for the outdoors, firearms and archery, along with fond memories of coming to River Ridge Gun Club for pheasant hunts, sporting clays and events with our friends and family, was the driving force behind purchasing this magnificent piece of property. We have taken over two years to research, educate ourselves, perform due diligence and plan with the utmost emphasis on safety and respect for the environment to bring this region a premier outdoor shooting range, River Ridge Shooting Club.
