Milford Hills Hunt Club  

Located in Johnson Creek, WI


Milford Hills Hunt Club is hard to get to, really hard to get to. But once you get there, you'll be glad you did. Located one hour west of Milwaukee, (or a half hour west of Wern Valley Sportsman's Club) MHHC sits on 400 acres of prime Wisconsin real estate.

The first thing that catches your eye as you drive in is the clubhouse, it's huge. Once inside you realize it's a rustic two-story 10,000 square feet bar and restaurant, and is loaded with animal mounts.

In the winter MHHC is primarily a bird hunting facility, but in the summer months they do a brisk business on their sporting clays course. Since I was in town for the Miller Lite Championship at Wern Valley, the decision to shoot a round at MHHC was easy.

My friends Tom, Dan, Mark and I decided to have a little lunch before we ventured out onto the course. While they do have a nice selection of local beers, those would have to wait until after our round.

After a great lunch of burgers and rings, Chris Cantrell (club manager) set us up with a cart and some score cards. When I asked about a key card for the stations, he replied, "We trust you, just keep track of how much you shoot, and we'll settle up at the end."

The 12 station sporting course is set up in a circle that starts and ends at the clubhouse. There are some elevation changes to it, but it's still soft enough to walk. The target presentations made good use of the terrain, and were all fun. They day we were there, they had it setup as a hunters course, so we added a little difficulty to it by shooting everything as true pairs.

Station seven has both a shooting box and a rowboat that's suspended by chains. As I stepped into the boat it was really rocking and rolling, and I nearly fell on my butt. My friend Mark (he suffers from Huntington's disease, which is similar to Lou Gehrig's disease) had an ear to ear grin on his face and said, "Hey, welcome to my world."  The kid has plenty of heart, and a good sense of humor.

Station 12 is their signature station. It features and elevated shooting platform, and looks out into a valley. From here targets are launched in the sky against a picturesque setting.

After we finished our round, we sampled some of their local beers, and settled up. MHHC is a fun place, and if you're near Milwaukee, stop in and visit them, you'll be glad you did.
