What You'll Get
Outdoor sports test a person's instincts in ways that indoor sports such as bathtub fishing and sink diving simply can't duplicate. Test sporting skills in the great outdoors with today's Groupon to Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Glen Rose. Choose between the following options:
- $45 for one round (100 shots) of sporting clays (a $90 value)
- $75 for a two-person unguided fishing excursion on Mallard Lake (a $150 value)
Rough Creek Lodge and Resort treats sport enthusiasts to days packed with rustic recreation. Those who opt to arm up can take aim at 100 sporting clays launched from 10 strategically arranged stands. Each stand is outfitted with multiple traps, with workers working feverishly to hand-sculpt fresh pigeons between each launch. The clay-target game challenges shooters with an array of targets sent along flight paths that match those of flushing, crossing, and incoming game birds. Although guests must supply their own ammunition, the resort will happily provide a shotgun loaner (if needed) and a guide well-versed in calling duck, quail, and discs.
Anglers can arrive as early as dawn for catch-and-release fishing on Mallard Lake. Whether casting from the dock or wading into the shallows, hook setters will be able to angle for an abundance of largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, perch, and other pole-shaking prey. The unguided excursion allows for sunup to sundown fishing, with fishermen and fisherwomen encouraged to bring their own boat to increase their hooking odds.
Though they are not included in today's deal, numerous additional amenities are available at the Rough Creek Lodge and Resort. The outdoor-friendly abode accommodates adventures with well-appointed rooms for a restful, extended stay. Guests can also feast upon rustic American cuisine such as Texas quail with parmesan-cheese grits or pan-roasted tasmanian salmon with fingerling potatoes at the lodge's on-site restaurant.
This Groupon is not valid for spring break week, holidays, and holiday weekends.
