History:
With roots in the early 1900’s, the Sheridan County Sportsmen’s Association (SCSA) has evolved into a diverse, comprehensive shooting organization with strong support facilities for shooting activities.

Early involvements by SCSA brought elk to the Bighorn Mountains (1910); established the State Game Bird Farm (1937); construction of 40 trout rearing ponds in the Sheridan area; the setting aside of the Tongue River campgrounds; and support activities for planting moose and deer in the area.

Trap and skeet shooting have long been mainstay activities along with competitive and recreational shooting.

Located approximately 3 ½ miles west of Sheridan on Keystone Road (via 5th Street and Soldier Creek Road), SCSA offers year round shooting opportunities for the whole family.  [map to location]
