Just a short drive from Athens, we offer a phenomenal outdoor course for individual, group and team clay shooting. We are connected to the Etowah Valley Game Preserve, giving you access to both clay and bird shooting options in one convenient location.

Our shotgun range offers options for beginners and advanced shooters. Learn the basics with our shotgun shooting lessons to get you started skeet or trap shooting. For more experienced shooters and hunters, we have our five-stand and sporting clays courses, as well as a full day “Clays and Feathers” package, incorporating clay shooting at our range and hunting at the game preserve.

Skeet Shooting

Practice your aim and precision skills with our skeet shooting range. Targets fly in cross-patterns, with 25 shots per round. If you are practicing for a competition or getting ready for the hunting season, skeet shooting is an excellent way to improve your reaction times.

Trap Shooting Course

Trap shooting is a great beginning shotgun sport, with targets flying away from the shooters at speeds around 40 MPH. Although the heights remain consistent, the angles can vary, helping to improve your aim and timing. Like skeet shooting, each round includes 25 shots, five from each station.
