The Hodag Sports Club has numerous teams that utilize our ranges for practices and matches. Some teams need to have membership to participate in practices but non-members are welcome for team matches. Please see the team listings below for team and non-member prices as well as individual team contact information.

USPSA – United States Practical Shooting Association

You need not be a USPSA/IPSC member to shoot.

The “Northwoods Practical Shooter“, a sanctioned club under the direction of the USPSA, has been operating at our rifle range at 5896 Sports Club Road.

Bruce Gary and a team of dedicated local shooters have been holding matches every 4th Sunday from April-October over five years at our Rifle Range. Various stages are set up where you move and shoot at moving targets, disappearing targets, falling targets, and various steel interactive targets which all help to sharpen your shooting skills.

Practices are held every Tuesday starting in April 5 PM – 7 PM until October; fall hours are adjusted for safe shooting in daylight hours and determined by practicing teams. You must have a handgun, either semi-auto or revolver with a minimum caliber of 9MM/38 with a maximum of .45. You may also use a Pistol Caliber Carbine in the same calibers. You will need an external hip holster, ear and eye protection, and spare magazines. No concealed carry weapons permitted. There are various classes of shooters and you only compete within your class which levels the playing field.

We welcome interested parties to attend a practice or watch a match. If you want to shoot challenging and interesting stages, and learn to use your handgun effectively, please look us up.

For more information please email Mr. Bruce Gary at Matches and practice are held at the Hodag Sports Club Rifle Range at 5896 Sports Club Rd., Rhinelander, WI.
