The accommodating staff at Gannett Ridge Hunting Equipment prepares recreational shooters to hunt down elusive bull’s-eyes with archery equipment, practice ranges, and bow-maintenance services. The 5,000-square-foot lodge houses a 20-yard indoor archery range divided into 10 lanes with SpiderWeb targets, which enable easy arrow removal and harbor spiders that bring fired ammo back to their owners. During private lessons, the shop’s experienced bowyers equip each guest with a bow, arrows, arm guards, and finger protectors before schooling them in the art of tagging targets. Bow-owners can keep their stringed shooters in fine fettle with a super-tune bow tune-up that includes inspection, cleaning, string care, full paper tuning, and calibration of each arrow’s apple-seeking mini-computer.
Gannett Ridge Hunting Equipment
Gannett Ridge Hunting Equipment owners Josh Soholt and Tyler Matthews call themselves back country mountain hunters, and it's a hard-earned title. They earned it along with sore legs, bouts of hyperthermia, and sleepless nights as they navigated hundreds of thousands of feet of elevations in everything from blistering sun to blizzards. They longed for a pro-shop that catered to their needs, so they decided to start their own.
They carry everything a serious hunter needs, from modern devices such as optics equipment to good, old-fashioned bows and arrows. They offer expert advice on gear, having used everything in their shop to bag impressive trophies in various hunts.
