Sporting Clays Question...

8 posts in this topic

I am looking to shoot some sporting clays a few times in the next couple of months and had to give up my membership at the local gun club ($$$ and time issues). Which means, no membership = no shoot.

So I am wondering if any of you know of any "open" clay shoots (nonmember) around the metro/north metro. I will travel, but I dont want to go more than a couple hours.

I have read a lot about the "Horse and Hunt Club". I beleave they have open shooting available. Anyone shoot there? @ $0.20 a shot shooting the O/U is about the only thing I can afford to shoot, not to mention find rounds for.

Any Ideas help guys.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Looks like I have some more research to do. I will let you guys know what I find out. If anyone else finds or hears about anything let the rest of us know.

Season is getting closer everyday, Doves in a month and a half, and Grouse just a couple weeks after that. Time to get the hands and eyes back in shape.

Horse and hunt is open to the public for clays. I think it's $21 for non-members. I know it's $17 for members and about $11 for kids.

Five courses and you can still shoot lead.

I have been to H&H club a few times this year. They have plenty of open shooting, there is a calender of events on thier web site, but i like to call and make sure befor i drive out there. The price has gone up to $23 dollars for a round for a non-member I'm pretty sure.

Forest Lake Sportsmans Club, Horse and Hunt Club, and Wild Marsh sporting clays are all nice public courses. If you hit up Wild Marsh, bring a buddy because they don't have pullers. I was lucky enough to slip in with a group of guys when I was there last month. It's a real nice facility.

Check out Game Unlimited in Wisconsin. It's about a 15 minute drive from Hudson. Nice coarse, not as high brow as Horse and Hunt club. Last fall it was $20.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
