Shooting – Sporting Clays and Targets
Far off the beaten path, past meadows, barns and bike paths, a skeet-shooting range and a 22-calibre rifle range, invite guests to target practice. At the clay range – single and double-pull clays, sport shotguns, and a mixed backdrop of deciduous and coniferous trees provide significant challenge. Moving targets mean serious focus, but such fun when guests hit their mark and shards fly.
At the rifle range, an eclectic assortment of static and dynamic targets set up at varying distances, ensure that participants of all ages have fun and improve their skills. Highly-trained, skilled instructors initiate sessions with lessons in gun handling and safety. Ear and eye protection supplied and manditory.
