Our shooting club has been a part of Austin, Minnesota since 1940 and is a great place to shoot.

The Cedar Valley Conservation Club offers a wide variety of shooting opportunities for all shooters, no matter their age or gender. We also strive to insure that every shooting experience is safe for those at the club and for our neighbors as well. Cedar Valley Conservation Club has an extensive shooting program for you to hone your marksmanship skills. We regularly shoot Trap, Skeet and 5-Stand Sporting Clays. Our range also offers you two stations for rifle practice from 50 yards, two stations for rifle at 100 yards and one station for 200 yard rifle practice. Additionally, we have four stations for pistol practice that are 25 yards. We work closely with the Minnesota DNR and offer youth training programs for probationers that have little or no prior shooting experience.
Samuel Borgerson, one of Austin's finest, recently won the Minnesota Sporting Clays First Annual Youth Shoot.
Competition took place at the Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club this last Sunday, August 4.
With a field of in excess of 60 young men and women from throughout the state, Sam competed in the 100 round course.
Competition was stiff and Sam defeated some great shooters at this event, among them the 2018 National Trap Champion and the 2017 State Skeet Champion.
Sam shoots a standard Winchester SX 3 semi- automatic field shotgun. Just goes to show you what you can do with the standard field gun, a keen eye and a steady hand.
A recent graduate of Austin High School and member of the AHS Clay Target Team, Sam is working for the summer before he plans to continue his education at college. Sam would like to thank the coaching staff of the AHS Clay Target Team for helping him develop his award winning skills.
