The MRC Sportsman’s Club is a scenic venue, nestled in the woods 8 miles north of Medford on highway 13. Just an hour’s drive south of Park Falls, the “Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World”. (We think we have pretty good bird hunting too, but let’s keep that a secret!)

Join fellow devotees of traditional side-by-side guns in a weekend that will include a lot of shooting, hundreds of fine doubles to ogle (and maybe buy!), and camaraderie with other double gun lovers.
