Dryke learned shooting at his father’s range, the Sunnydell Shooting Grounds. Chuck Dryke started it as a place to train hunting dogs but later converted it to a trap, skeet, and shooting clays range. As a child, Matt used to show off by shooting targets while riding a unicycle. Dryke took over from his father running the range, where he also gives private lessons.
