Skeet/Shotgun Rules

Our shotgun range features five trap ranges (able to throw singles, wobble trap, and doubles trap), four skeet ranges (two of which are equipped for super skeet), three five stand fields, and a seasonal sporting clays walk-through course. All ranges are illuminated for year round and nighttime shooting. We host 16 week leagues in the fall and spring.

Violation of the rules on this page or the Safety Rules page will subject violators to immediate ejection and forfeiture of all range fees! Range masters and management reserve the right to revoke your membership if you violate any of these rules!

If you have any questions about these rules ASK before proceeding to shoot! Any exceptions to these rules must be approved by management before shooting.

General Shotgun Sports Rules

  1. Open or Out. Shooters who violate these guidelines will be asked to leave:
    1.  Actions must be open at all times when not on station and prepared to shoot. Break open guns may be closed when placed in a gun rack but must be opened immediately upon removal.
    2. Firearms must be carried unloaded and with actions open and the muzzle pointed in a safe direction with fingers off the trigger.
    3. Do not load the gun until you are on your station and you are ready to shoot.
    4. The gun must remain pointed down range while on station.
    5.  While on station, the gun must remain pointed in a safe direction (up or down) with the action open and unloaded.
    6. When finished shooting a station the gun must be empty and open before stepping off.
  2. Eye and ear protection is required for everyone forward of the “Bull” rail.
  3. Children (anyone 17 years and younger) must be under the supervision of a parent or guardian at all times when on the property.
  4. All pets must be leashed, kenneled, or under voice control when on the property.
  5. For safety reasons, customers may not go forward of the designated firing areas.
  6. The rental guns may only be used with factory loaded shells – no reloads.
  7. Pistol type shotguns may only be used with the prior approval of management.
  8. This is a target range, the use of shot larger than #6 is prohibited. Shot shells in excess of 1400 FPS are not allowed.
  9. NO STEEL SHOT ALLOWED.

Additional Trap, 5-Stand, and Skeet Rules

  1. Shooters moving from any position on the trap fields must walk behind other shooters.
  2. When moving from one station to the next, the gun must be open and empty.
  3. During registered events, shooters may not fire at any targets other than their own.
  4. Only one shooter may shoot at a time.
  5. No more than 5 shooters will be allowed to squad together at a time.
  6. Any time the Puller/Trapper is down range loading the machines, guns must be unloaded with the actions open. An orange cone on top of a trap will indicate the presence of a Puller/Trapper tending to the machine. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SHOOT WHEN AN ORANGE SAFETY CONE IS PRESENT!
  7. No more than one shell may be loaded during singles games, and no more than two shells may be loaded during doubles games. In the case of 5-Stand or Wobble, two shots may be fired at a single target. The only exception is when shooting a 3 In the Air Event.
  8. While shooting Skeet or Super Skeet, the muzzle of the shotgun must never be pointed in such a manner that it crosses behind the orange safety poles mounted on the skeet houses.
  9. When shooting regular Skeet, all shooters must shoot the High 8 bird before any shooter shoots the Low 8 bird/target.
  10. The shotgun patterning board is for shotguns only. The patterning board can be used only when there is no activity on Trap 5 or Skeet A.
