Overview:

We welcome all shooters young and old, new to expert, members, and non-members.

5 Stand shot-gun shooting is designed to provide all types of simulated small game hunting. It is sometimes called a mini Sporting Clays course.

The game is designed to hone skills from beginners to experts, and most important to have fun.

Shooters shoot from five different stations and shoot five shots from each station. The targets can come from any direction left, right, front, and back. They can be fast, slow, roll along the ground (rabbit) fly straight up (teal) or you can even shoot two birds as they cross in front of you. Usually, there are six to eight different targets to create a variety of challenges. Fees are $5.00 per round

Any shotgun that can shoot two rounds rather quickly, a double, semi-auto, or pump all work well. We have folks that shoot 10 ga to 410s with 12 ga being the most popularNumber 7 1/2 or 8 seem to be the shot size used. I like shooting my 410, I don’t hit as many, but I feel real good when I do.

Safety is a big factor for us. Eye and ear protection is a must to participate or watch.

We have skill levels from new shooters to experts, and the good thing is we can all shoot together and have fun. If you choose there are folks that will assist you, or grab your own style, and enjoy.
