Yes, we charge a minimum of 25 clays. Our sporting clays course uses a card activated system that counts what you throw. When you check out after shooting, we charge for the number of clays you used.
At this time, pistols are prohibited.
Shooters are allowed to bring their own shotguns and ammo as long as they meet the rules and regulations set by our guidelines on our website.
All target presentations require only 2 shots to be taken. No three shots allowed.
We offer shotgun ammo in gauge 12, 20, 28 and .410 in shot size 7 ½, 8, and 9.
Skeet targets are crossing targets but in shooting trap, all of the targets are outgoing targets that are moving away from you from one Wobble machine. Sporting clays have a wide variety of target presentations that are thrown. Five Stand is a cross between Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays with the advantage that it is more action packed than Trap, has more crossing/flying patterns than Skeet and is faster than Sporting Clays.
