Minocqua Gun Club

About the Minocqua gun club

Our Mission is to operate a not for profit, educational
and training facility for the benefit of the Lakeland area residents and visitors. Our endeavors shall include providing all the facilities necessary for hunter’s safety curricula and junior trapshooting. As members, we continue to pursue the ideals and merits of sportsmanship, friendly competition and goodwill as a common bond.



Board of Directors meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the clubhouse. These meetings begin at 7 pm and members are encouraged to attend.

On the internet, you can find us at: www.minocquagunclub.com. Our website has current information about the upcoming calendar,  and items of interest about trap and skeet shooting. 

The Minocqua Gun Club is a not for profit, public shooting facility located in the heart of the North Woods. We have been operating as a continuous organization since 1958 and over that time, with generous donations and lots of volunteer help, we have built a beautiful new Clubhouse, three trap ranges with wireless voice response systems, a skeet range.

The centerpiece of our club is the Youth League where area youngsters can earn their Hunters Safety Certificate and learn to shoot trap free of charge till they are through High School. Each year MGC is well represented by our kids at the State High School Trapshooting finals and, over the years they have garnered several State Championship awards.

We have approximately one hundred men and women as members and many more casual shooters who visit via their summer homes here in the Lakeland area. Each fall, we have an Annual Meeting where we elect club members to serve on the Board of Directors. Each Board Member serves a two year term with the President limited to a two term tenure. Currently our Board of Directors is:

President Luke Yelton
Vice President Russ Goddard
Secretary Sara Kuchler
Treasurer Jeff Tranter
Board Member Steve Jentz
Board Member Donna Pukall
Board Member Bill Kuchler
Alternate Jim Anderson
Alternate Doug Stewart

We are truly blessed to live and work in such a beautiful part of Wisconsin. This area has abundant lakes, rivers and streams surrounded by magnificent pine forests with Minocqua as the hub of Tourist activity in the North Woods. 

The Minocqua Gun Club cordially invites you to stop in the next time your “Up North” and spend some time shooting targets and shooting the breeze with us.
