Welcome to the cedar valley conservation club!

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

Thank you for visiting our website. We assume you are interested in practical/action type shooting - if this is the case you are in the right place ! View our club rules Click here

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.

Trap/Skeet Price Increase

All Ranges are NOT OPEN during Trap and Skeet shooting.

Effective May 1, 2020 - members' price will increase $.50 to $4.50 and non-members will be $8.00 for a round of trap or skeet.  Youth prices will increase to $4.00. This increase is due to our costs for birds increasing for the second year in a row. These increases will help to offset the cost of birds and be used for maintenance of the trap machines.


New Metal Pistol Targets!

We have installed new metal targets on the North pistol range. These new targets can be set to accommodate lower powered .22 caliber rounds or more powerful rounds up to .50 cal. These targets can be remotely reset.
