Enjoy the Metro Gun Club in Blaine, MN while you can. I don't expect it to be their much longer. Then us folks in the North metro will have fewer options.

Back 40, Ain't the fanciest range but it don't cost me a thing except property taxes but the cattle more then pay for that.
I did shoot at Knob Hill over east of Wadena (Minn.) but at $15 per year membership. + $3 per 25 rounds you shoot. i siad the hell with 'em. I ain't going to pay money and especialy not that kind of money when I can shoot on my own land and it don't cost a thing.

If you are in IL, the best place by far is Buffalo Range. Especially if you own more than just shotguns .... I have seen guys with 50 cals ... all day, own ammo for $20.

Elkhorn Lake Hunt Club in Bucyrus, Ohio

www.elkhornlakehuntclub.com

They've got Sporting Clays, Skeet, Trap, 5-Stand, (open year-round) along with Pheasant, Chukar, Hungarian Partridge and Bob-White Quail hunting during the fall/winter/early spring.

Now that I've moved I'm looking for a new place and will be trying out some of the other ones y'all have linked on this forum.

just joined Fairfield Sportsmen Association outside of Cincinnati Ohio.

2 skeet fields with 5 houses on each field all voice activated

2 trap fields

trap and skeet fields lighted and open until 11pm. ( u can shoot a round of trap or skeet for 2.50 on fridays and sundays) or you can operate the machines buy yourself any other day when there are not leagues going on, you just have to buy your clays from the club

rifle range with 100, 200, 300 yard bunkers
plinking range
pistol range
archery range
stocked fishing lake
camping with electrical hook ups

all for a low yearly price of 70 bucks

the only thing is that if you shoot skeet or trap you have to purchase your case of clays from the club which u only pay about a dollar more than the club does which goes for other things like machine up keep and up keep of the club


Fairfield Sportsmens Association - Ross (New Baltimore), OH

Just a few points of clarification:

FSA has the following facilities:

-4 Lighted Trap Fields
-1 International Trap Field
-2 Lighted Skeet Fields (combo with 2 additional trap fields)
-Covered, divided handgun range (permits regular shooting one one side while an event is on the other)
-Covered Plinking Range
-Covered 300yd Rifle Range (currently closed pending upgrades)
-Archery Range
-Fishing Pond

Skeet and Trap are open to the public on Sunday mornings and Friday evenings. All other times and all other facilities require membership. A member can have up to two guests. A member's spouse is considered a non-voting member and does not require individual membership.

The closest place for me is Triple H Gun Club in Linton. He has 2 skeet ranges (one's a skeet/trap combo) and an additional Trap range. He's in the process of building another trap range as well. In addition, he has a nice 5 stand set up. There's also two sporting clay setups. One that's all auto's and one that's a combo of the auto's and manuals. The Sc range is set in old Coal spoils hills that are timbered. So you have some pretty interesting shots opportunities.

Linton is about an hour out of Terre Haute and about an hour North of Vincennes and an hour west of Bloomington In.

Skeet is like $3.50 same with Trap and 5 stand is $5 and SC is $25.
The clubhouse has some good food as well as he is a full line Beretta and Browning dealer.

Last summer it was $5 a round for skeet and $17 for sporting clays. I've never shot trap there but it is available. They also have a rifle/pistol range for $5 all day. 25, 50, and 100 yards.

I joined St. Joe Valley Conservation Club last January for the winter Trap league. Posted here earlier in a different forum, "it covers 155 acres and includes a 2,800-square-foot clubhouse, 10 skeet fields, nine trap fields, a five-stand building and 51 RV parking spots."
Open on Saturdays, Sundays, and on Wednesday evenings
It won a National Skeet Shooting Association award in 2005.

The Clays course is in the woods and is alot more like shooting game in the woods. In the summer you are walking in the shade instead of the hot sun. If you have other firearms, there are 100 yd., 50 yd., 25 yd. ranges archery and a indoor hangun range for members and thier guest.
