SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Joshua Creek Ranch, a sportsman's shooting resort located in the Texas Hill Country, announced their distinction as a Beretta Trident Rated destination for excellence in upland bird hunting. The Beretta Trident Program - a unique, quality rating-system based on a stringent assessment of a shooting sports venue, is not an endorsement that can be purchased. Branded by Beretta, the Trident Program requires venues - offering hunting and/or shotgun sports - to undergo a detailed assessment of every area that impacts the guest experience. Beretta, a nearly 500 year-old brand, has permitted its name to be used to signify the exceptional quality of a hunting or shooting experience. Joshua Creek Ranch is one of only four lodges in the country to receive a Trident Rating and the only lodge located in Texas.
"We are extremely proud of our new designation and affiliation with the Beretta Trident Program," said Ann Kercheville, President of Joshua Creek Ranch. "During the past twenty years our main objective has been to provide our guests with an exceptional and memorable outdoor adventure. Just like Beretta we share a commitment to excellence and a genuine passion for the sporting life."
While emphasizing the outstanding hunting or shooting experience, the evaluation system recognizes and rates everything from the hunting to the dining to the bird dogs. The necessary quality standards must be both attained and maintained for the destination to stay in the program and ensure excellence and high performance.
Joshua Creek Ranch, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, is nestled on an isolated stretch of the pristine Guadalupe River - just 40 minutes Northwest of San Antonio International Airport. The ranch's diverse terrain is the perfect habitat for the best quail hunting in Texas, with the added bonus of pheasant and partridge. Joshua Creek Ranch offers Continental shoots, European-style driven pheasant shoots and upland bird walk-up hunting. Sports enthusiasts also enjoy fly-fishing for trout and gunning on three different automatic, state-of-the art clay-shooting scenarios. Gourmet dining and lodging with spectacular views top off the ultimate outdoor experience. Joshua Creek Ranch is celebrating 20 years as a superior hunting and wing shooting lodge and its designation as a Beretta Trident Lodge for excellence in upland bird hunting.
