Highland Hills Ranch Selected to Beretta Trident Program

On May 20, 2010 Mr. Ugo Beretta, President and CEO Beretta SpA, flew to the New York Beretta Gallery for an exclusive invitation only event to introduce the first wingshooting lodges and charter members of the Berretta Trident Program. Highland Hills Ranch is proud to announce that they were one of four lodges worldwide selected into the Trident Program. To put this achievement in perspective, Beretta International has never endorsed lodges in their 500 year history.

Beretta started their search worldwide to find lodges that aligned with their values and tradition of exceptional quality. The Program is similar to the Michelin Star rating system used in the restaurant industry. Beretta relied on hunting professionals and wildlife experts to evaluate and rank lodges. During the respective game seasons, lodges were judged upon quality of hunting, guest services, food and wine, the hospitality and professionalism of guides, and the performance of the dogs. “Until now, no such rating-system has been utilized at hunting and shooting venues,” stated Christopher Merritt, General Manger of Beretta USA. The Trident rating system guarantees that any shooting sport venue bearing the Trident mark is a top quality operation and a worthy sporting destination. Further, Beretta stresses that the Trident mark is earned and not purchased.

HHR was selected to the Trident Program due to the exceptionally high marks received in each of the criterion categories.

Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year (2003 – 2004)

Highland Hills Ranch was awarded the prestigious Orvis Wingshooting Lodge of The Year at the Orvis Endorsed Lodges Rendezvous held in April, 2004 at the Barnsley Gardens Resort in North Georgia.

Excerpt from Dan O’Connor, Director, Outdoor Services, The Orvis Company:

The Orvis Endorsed Wing Shooting Lodge of the Year, 2003 – 2004 is Highland Hills Ranch in Condon, Oregon. Most years we have a tough decision to make around the end of February. This year it was simple, Highland Hills stood out early on and it was obvious they were going to get the recognition. We use a number of vehicles to grade each lodge every year, some of these are known to the lodges some are not. The most obvious are client reports and letters sent to us by Orvis customers, positive publicity generated, etc. There are only 24 Orvis Endorsed Lodges in the United States, rarified air to begin with and to rise to the top is a truly envious achievement.

Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year (2012)

We proudly received A 2nd award from Orvis as their Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year in 2012 and were named as finalists in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2018, and 2019.

The recent recognition by Orvis and Beretta is due to HHR’s ongoing commitment to excellence by providing our customers with an unmatched hunting experience coupled with world-class amenities and services.
