    This is the worst shooting range I have ever been to. I was very excited about the opportunity to find a nearby outdoor range. I’ve been shooting handguns for years, but have two long guns that I never get to shoot because I can only find indoor ranges. Instead I left after only a few minutes after one person in our group broke their procedural rules. He did nothing unsafe… He had 3 guns on the bench instead of 2, took his gun out of the case while the case was off the bench, and walked to the shooting position with his firearm pointed toward the ground. Everything done here is common practice at any other range we have gone to, and perfectly safe. Granted, it was a violation of their rules, but none of the range officers pulled him aside to give him a rundown of their rules like they did with the rest of us in our group. Instead of pulling him aside to make sure he knew the proper procedures that they expect their customers to follow, three of their employees began belligerently screaming at the three of us. We repeatedly tried to explain that the one person was not aware of the rules, and we tried to de-escalate the situation. We repeatedly stated that since he now knew the rules he would follow them. But they continued to create an extremely hostile, and extremely tense situation. They took a procedural mistake made by one person, and turned it into an extremely hostile situation involving six people. McMiller staff creates a very unsafe environment. We all chose to leave because people should not be shooting firearms in that situation. These are the hot headed gun nuts that the liberal media wants the public to believe we all are. Fortunately, these instances are few and far between, but be safe and go somewhere where the employees are not completely insane.

    I’ve shot at McMiller for about 3 years now. It is an awesome place for both beginners and experienced shooters. I really enjoy the fact that they keep the sporting clays course open throughout the winter as well as the rest of the year, making it an ideal place to spend an afternoon. I highly recommend McMiller Sports Center to any new or experienced shooter.

    We love McMiller. We have had a great time there. The people have been fantastic. We have learned a great deal. Of course, my son catches on very quickly, but I really appreciate the patience that people have shown me. We plan to keep coming back.

    Wonderful, comprehensive shooting sports facility!

    Excellent, helpful staff that give much of thier time and knowledge to help out new shooters!

    It would reflect badly upon the Wisconsin DNR to pander to the wishes of a vocal few and shut down a resource that is funded and maintained by the fees paid by sportsmen through the Pitmann-Robertsen Act (license and ammunition taxes).

    Wonderful facility in a fantastic forest setting. Today was my first visit, and I definitely was not disappointed. Target presentations well thought out, fun to shoot. Course is a nice easy walk. All the great things I had heard about McMiller were true! I will be back and plan on bringing others with me.

    My son Connor (13 and a beginner) and I have shot the sporting clays course 4 times. The course has a good mix of stations that represent actual hunting scenarios. What I mean is the rabbits are not on steroids and the passing shots are not at 60 yds. It’s a fun course through the woods for any shooter. Costs are very reasonable for 50 birds, Thursday-adult $12.00 and kids-$7.00. Sunday-adult $16.00 and kids-$9.00. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend McMiller.

    Wow. I went back to McMiller last weekend and took three novices to the novice range. We worked all day on shooting clays and they had a blast. They were all as impressed with the facility as I was the last time I was there. So much so that they returned with me on Sunday and brought another novice to shoot the Sporting Clays Range. I’ve only shot 8 or 10 courses around the midwest and southeast, so I’m no expert on ranges, but this one was really a lot of fun. With each station there was the thought that someone had put some thought into setting this target and offering the shooter a challenge, yet they had not attempted to just set up an impossible shot that would be no fun for most shooters. The setting was great, the staff was great, and the variety of targets presented a bit of a challenge for me, and a LOT of fun for the newer shooters. Our group of 5 had scores ranging from 20-91 birds, but the level of fun was equal from novice to more experienced shooter. Great course, great staff, lots of fun.

    Fantastic spot. I took a novice to the novice trap range and I can’t think of a better setup to teach people. We were able to work on everything with him and progress from really easy to more moderately difficult targets including pairs. The range safety officer was as much ambassador as safety officer and was very friendly and helpful. I plan to take at least three more people here to teach them and I personally hope to get to shoot the Sporting Clays course soon.

    The staff at McMiller have been awesome. I feel like a VIP every Sunday I’m there. I love the whole center, but the sporting clays course is what I come for. Every week the course changes up some. So it is always new for me. The atmosphere of being in the woods is great. I love that. The whole arrangement is nice. Good people and a good outings make it all worth while. I may try from time to time other places, but for me McMiller is my home field.

    I wrote a review about 6 months ago saying that the entire facility is very nice, but the range officers seemed to be unusually strict. I would like to adjust my previous post by saying that the range has been upgraded since last year, and is absolutely First Class. Additionally, I would like to add that the new range officers on the rifle range are very safe, and now very courteous and friendly. It’s really a Fun, and Quality operation right now.

    I have been to the range out at McMiller’s over the past 12 years doing a wide range of shooting such as Pistol, Shotgun, Rifle Range and trap shooting. It is probably the best range around the Mid-West area in my opinion that I have been to. Being outdoors also enhances the fun and is not as nauseating as an indoor range from all the lead and gun powder smoke particles in the air.

    As with one of the other shooter’s comments, I would have to say that the “Range Officers” could be a little more cordial and still be safe at the same time. Other then that, I have been a very satisfied person with McMiller and thank them for keeping it going and making it possible for Men, Woman and children to experience the sport while not being contained to a indoor range in the city.

    Try it out, gauranteed fun that will make you want to start to plan your next trip.

    Happy Shooting,
    David

    This course is neslted in the woods on the rolling hills of wisconsin. It is one of the nicest clubs around. The atmosphere is fantastic. The people are helpful and knowledgable. The course is always changing and challenging. Stop in sometime to have a great afternoon of shooting. All I can say is wow!!

    Really a very nice place. I have shot sporting clays and just walking thru the woods was a treat. The course was fairly easy, but that’s nice when you have a fairly inexperienced guest.
    I have also shot on the rifle range, which has a protected shooting area with a roof and plexiglass walls.The rangers are very strict, and could probably be a little more cordial, but better safe than sorry.
    Now I see they have a 300 yard rifle range, which I have not tried, but it looks very nice.
    All in all, they have a lot to do with an archery field, pistol range and novice trap rane, along with a very nice clubhouse.
    The prices seem to be fair, and I’d highly recommend it to other summer weekenders who are looking to do something besides waterskiing.
