Michigan Shooting Centers was founded in 2001 by Patrick Lieske, a world-renown sporting clays shooter and coach. It was then that Lieske, an accountant, decided to turn his passion for the shooting sports into his full-time profession. He bid on and was awarded a long-term lease to operate the Island Lake Shooting Range in Brighton as a private concessionaire to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Eight years later, in 2009, Pat added Bald Mountain Shooting Range in Lake Orion to his portfolio. With the help of his family and staff, Pat has built his two ranges into Michigan’s most-trafficked public shooting ranges. Nearly half a million people visit our ranges each year.
To this day, we remain a family owned-and-operated business with a strong passion for the shooting sports. The company is currently led by Pat and his son, Drew.
We are dedicated to offering Michigan sportsmen with safe, fun, and family-friendly shooting experiences! Whether you are a complete novice, a hunter, or a seasoned competitor, we’ve got something for you!
