Do you have Trap/Skeet?

There are tentative plans to expand to other shotgun sports; currently we are focusing on providing the best Sporting Clays and 5 Stand experience possible.

What is Sporting Clays? How is it played?

Sporting Clays is a clay pigeon sport that came to the US in the 1980s. Think of it like golf with a shotgun. Players will shoot a set number of target pairs from 10-15 stations, moving to the next until the entire course has been shot for a total of 100 attempted targets. The biggest difference between Sporting Clays and Trap/Skeet is that the target pairs are not fixed and will differ from station to station. 

Do you offer Instruction/Training?

Yes, we have multiple instructors that can help shooters at any level. Please email claysportsranch@defenderoutdoors.com to schedule your first lesson.

Do you have any Leagues? How do I join?

Are there ammunition restrictions?

Yes. No more than 2 shells are loaded at a time; and no larger than #7.5 shot 1 1/8th ounce loads are accepted. With regard to safety only shot sizes #8 and 9 and 7.5 are allowed. If you have questions about the suitability of your ammunition, our staff will gladly help you

I like shooting, but don’t like walking. Can I bring my own buggy/cart or do you have any for rent?

Yes to both! We absolutely allow personal carts/UTVs. If you don’t have one then we have carts for rent for $20.00. 

I don’t like walking, but don’t want to rent a cart. Can I drive my car/truck instead?

No. To minimize wear and tear to the grounds and provide the safest environment possible to our shooters, we don’t allow road worthy vehicles on our courses

Do you rent guns?

Yes, we offer multiple rental gun options. 

I just bought shotgun for home defense, can I shoot it there?

Yes, as long as it has a stock, barrel is a minimum of 22 inches long, and you use the appropriate ammunition. Be aware we only have clay targets available to shoot, there are no static paper targets at the Ranch.

I have a judge/governor pistol, can I shoot it there?
