Everyone must wear eye and ear protection, whether shooting or not. You may bring your own or purchase them here. Prescription or sunglasses are fine for eyes. All ammo must be no larger than 7-1/2 shot.
On the course
Meet with a range officer to get situated, then shoot as much or as little as you like at whatever stations you choose. Most folks spend 2-3 hours shooting.
Check in at the Clubhouse 15 minutes before your hunt starts. Purchase any needed ammo or blaze orange gear, and meet up with your guide.
After the hunt
Before you leave
Clean your birds at our fully-stocked cleaning station, or have our guides clean them for a per-bird fee. A guide tip is encouraged – cash only, please. Then return to the clubhouse to settle up and relax!
People often refer to sporting clays as “golf with a shotgun.” It consists of shooting five pairs of targets at each of ten stations, totaling 100 clay targets. Target presentations vary between stations. This variety makes sporting clays the most realistic simulation of bird hunting and makes it fun and challenging for both recreational and competitive shooters.
At our sporting club, individuals are not committed to shooting 100 targets. You have the flexibility of shooting as many or as few clay targets as you like and are charged accordingly at the member or non-menber rate per target.
What is 5-Stand?
Five-stand is a sporting clays game in which shooters rotate between 5 stands positioned adjacent to one another on a compact course, taking 5 shots at each stand. Clay targets are released from 8 machines according to sequence menus posted at each stand. The game consists of 25 shots. It is an entertaining, fast-moving game that allows for maximum interaction between shooters and is ideal for groups of 5 to 15 people. Targets are priced the same as for sporting clays.
Do you have trap and skeet shooting?
We have a 25-station sporting clays course and a 5-stand course but do not have trap or skeet shooting.
How long does it take to shoot a game of sporting clays?
For a group of 4 shooters, plan to spend about 2 to 3 hours on our sporting clays course, and allow some extra time to check in and check out in our clubhouse. Actual shoot time will vary based on the number of shooters per squad, how fast a group shoots, and the number of shots taken.
What are your hours and availability?
Our hours are 8am to 5pm Tuesday through Sunday. You must be finished shooting and back up to the clubhouse before 5pm.
Hours vary for major holidays. See our Calendar page for these changes.
April through October is our event season, so please check course availability on our Calendar, which shows which stations are available each day for the coming weeks, or call 303-644-4627. Availability is subject to change, so check back for the latest information.
Weather conditions also may affect course availability. The outdoor temperature must be at least 20 degrees, and we cannot throw targets if there is heavy rain or snow. After snowfall, there will usually be some delay in the course reopening due to necessary clearing of ice and snow. Feel free to call for course conditions.
Proof of hunter safety is required. Hunters must bring proof if we do not have it recorded ahead of time. See additional FAQs for more information about hunter safety.
A hunting license is NOT required to hunt at Kiowa Creek. You are covered by our commercial game park license.
You must wear a blaze orange hat as a minimum.
Shot size can be no larger than 6 (6 and 7.5 are okay; 5 is too big). No magnum or high brass loads are allowed. Maximums are 1-1/8 oz. load, 2-3/4” shell, 3-1/4 dram. Steel or lead shot is permitted.
All gratuities for the guide must be in cash. We cannot put a guide’s tip on a credit card, and we have no ATM.
We require a $100 nonrefundable deposit* at time of booking and have a 72-hour cancellation policy*. If you reschedule your hunt with more than 72 hours advance notice, we will transfer the deposit to the new date. If you reschedule or cancel your hunt with less than 72 hours advance notice, you will be charged an additional $150 per hunter. If you cancel anytime after close of business the day before your hunt, you will be charged the full balance of the hunt. *Holiday bookings have additional requirements.
What will you accept as proof of hunter safety?
Proof may be either a hunter safety card from any state or a current or expired hunting license from any state with the hunter safety number clearly identified on it. For Colorado, this number is located in the upper section of a game license after the word “FIREARM.” It is not the CID number. A hunter safety number is usually not on a fishing license. Please note we must see one of these official documents and cannot accept a hunter safety number on its own.
Hunter safety is not required for Colorado residents born prior to January 1, 1949. Please provide identification showing your date of birth to use this exemption. Hunter safety is otherwise virtually always required. If you have any questions, please call 303-644-4627 to discuss your circumstances.
What if I don’t have physical proof of hunter safety?
Can I cancel, reschedule, or make changes to my hunt?
You may make changes to your bird selection/count and number of hunters up to and including the day before your hunt. You may substitute hunters on the day of your hunt as long as all hunters provide us with the required proof of hunter safety.

What do I need to know about guides for my hunt?
All hunts, without exception, are guided to ensure everyone’s safety. All our guides are experienced professionals and provide first-class hunting dogs for use during your hunt. You may also request a particular guide for your hunt, and we will do our best to get that guide for you though we cannot guarantee availability. Please let us know if you will accept another guide or would prefer to reschedule.
