The games clays are perfect for a warm up before the hunt or a practice session in the afternoon. Similar to an enclosed 5 stand, this location has 6 shooting stations and 5 automated clay target throwers. We have the ability to throw a variety of different target trajectories and speeds all from one static locations. The games clays are fun and a challenge for the best of shooters!

Skeet & Trap Range

When designing our skeet range we were very careful to make sure the layout follows official skeet range guidelines. The skeet range is great for avid shooters and it’s a great way to incorporate some competition into your shooting activites. The skeet range is designed to incorperate all shots hunters will encounter in the fields leaving few, if any, possible field shots unpracticed.

As you enjoy all of your shooting facilities you will be treated to some of South Dakota’s most breathtaking views. You can see miles of rolling hills, cedar trees, mule deer and a spectacular view of the Missouri River.

Shooting sporting clays is included in the regular Thunderstik hunting package so take advantage of it and shoot all you want. The rest of the year, we will open the courses for groups of five or more with an advance reservation. It has been a fun addition to a meeting, or even something to keep the groomsmen out of trouble before the big wedding!


Long Range Rifle

The Historic Thunderstik Lodge invites you to our new Long-Range facility. Nestled in beautiful scenery looking over the rolling hills of the Missouri river, only a few steps from our main lodge. Coupled with world class pheasant hunting, historic lodging and exceptional cuisine, our long range course offers addition entertainment and exposure to large caliber shooting. If you are new to the sport and would like to get instruction during your stay, this addition to our property is perfect. On the other hand, if you are an experienced shooter and would like to sharpen your skills, our long range is expertly designed with you in mind. Your group can pre arrange to have Tannerite targets set up for fun or fun competition.

The Distance

Historic Thunderstik’ s Long Range complex is a marksman’s dream. We have designed a 900-yard dedicated range with the help of industry experts. The field has incremental metal target stands scattered along the range and is anchored with a sunken shooting deck housing 6 shooting lanes. Our goal was to make a facility perfect for shooters of all levels, but challenging enough for an expert marksman to hone his craft.
