Bob Hickle, an Air Force veteran and life-long resident of Jefferson County, opened Island Creek Sporting Clays in 2004. He noted a lack of shooting venues in the area. He has been joined over the years by his wife, Earla, and daughters Michelle and Jennifer who help with operations. All six of Bob’s grandchildren have worked at the range during high school, and three continue to work there now. Bob and Michelle are both Chief Range Officers and the family welcomes groups of all sizes. They especially enjoy introducing youth and scout troops to clay shooting.
