The Appel Family
We formerly owned and operated Double B Registered Holsteins on our home
farm, the current site of Thunder Ridge.  After dispersing our herd in 1992, we
pursued a career in the sporting clays industry. The original Thunder Ridge was
established in 1994 near the present location.  We have since managed Water &
Wings (formerly Twin S) in East Greenville, PA and Rock Mountain Sporting Clays.
While leasing "The Rock" property, we hosted such events as the NSCA Zone 2
Championship as well as the PA State Sporting Clays Championship.  Our
tournament attendance increased to the point of hosting multiple NSCA "Big
Blasts" throughout the year.   We have now brought our years of experience and
expertise in agriculture, sporting clays and game farm management together in
one location - known as Thunder Ridge, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of
Tioga County Pennsylvania.
Thunder Ridge offers its guests:

  • Limited archery whitetail deer hunts,
    including pope and young bucks, with
    strategically placed tree stands.
  • Black bear rifle hunts, turkey hunts, and
    coon hunting at its finest
  • You can also enjoy a fully automated 16
    field, 48 shooting position clay shooting
Future Plans
We plan to continue to expand our business to  
accommodate the needs of all of our clients from
family reunions
, weddings and birthday parties to
corporate outings.
