5-Stand Sporting ClaysSunday mornings 10:00 AM - 12 NOON
Our 5-stand consists of 8 automatic throwers put out in the field at various locations.
Shooters will be shooting targets from 5 stations. Targets can be crossing, going straight up
in the air, rabbits rolling along the ground or hopping in the air, targets coming in, going out very fast,
you name it. Some experience with a shotgun is recommended. Intermediate to advanced courses thrown.
Winter Sporting ClaysSunday mornings 10 AM sharp
When snow is on the ground, and in other inclement weather, we will be shooting standard
sporting clays from manual throwers. We shoot standard sized targets, midis, minis, battues, and
rabbits. Bring your A game for these targets, whatever crazy combo Billy and Jay can come up with.
Some experience recommended although beginners are welcome. Starts 10 AM sharp, 50 targets. If you arrive late, you will not be able to shoot 50 targets.
