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.

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
