Has anyone shot here? If so any comments would be appreciated. Thinking of making a weekend trip to check it out.

It is a great place to shoot!

Dan Bailey is the manager and he sets some nice targets!

+1 Terry

I think the Cadinal has improved greatly since Dan took over. His targets are creative to say the least.

It is well worth the trip.

I didnt shoot there when it was under the previous management but since Dan Bailey has been in charge it has been phenomenal. I am from Michigan and myself along with about 30 other Michigan shooters make the 3.5 hour drive to Cardinal just about every monthly shoot

If you are enjoy shooting tournaments and don't mind being tested you owe it to yourself to go. It is worth it now question.

In my opinion, it's the best that central Ohio has to offer!

I live 30 minutes from them. Dan does a great job!

Two courses to choose from or, you can rent a cart and shoot the whole place. You can pick up a copy of their league score sheet and shoot the course that Dan has picked out for those 2 weeks. They have a 5 stand that you can warm up on as well.

It would be worth a trip if the weather is nice. It can get a tad nippy in the winter months as they are surrounded by cut fields. On the other hand, it's very pleasant in the summer as it seems a constant light breeze keeps the temps down and the shade of all the trees keeps the sun off your head and out of your eyes.

I agree with the previous posts. Dan does a great job in setting up 2 different 100 bird courses. All promatic traps so you can shoot by your self if you want to work on certain target presentations or there are usually plenty of people around that you can shoot with.

Ill be there tomorrow around 10:30 with a couple of guys, you would be welcome to join us if you want. The one course will be tournament quality targets that will challenge you and the other will be more "friendly". If your into sub gauge shooting it makes a great course for the small bore.

You won't be disappointed.

The Santa Shoot Out on the 16th is a registered shoot?

Unfortunately Dan Bailey is no longer in charge nor setting targets. The owner Jack Fishburn, apparently felt that he could get by with less and let Dan go. The assistant from before is trying to run a 3-4 person job mostly by himself and I'm sure this will make some difference. I have only been back once since then.DB

I'm going to miss Dan's targets....I couldn't hit them, but it was fun trying.

I think this was a mistake. Good luck Dan!

This is one of the best and nicest places to shoot! Dan sets high quality targets on both courses! Cardinal was on its way to becoming one of the best courses in this region! Dan had quite a few really good ideas for continued course development. I fear that the quality of targets may suffer.

Does anyone find I odd that Cardinal has gone through two course managers in such a short time?

De Bob unfortunately I think you're right. I've been there a couple of times since Dan's departure and the targets haven't been changed much. You can't replace a guy like Dan with his experience by putting an "assistant in charge" of setting 60-70 traps. Just doesn't have the depth of targets to pull from.

Time will tell, maybe someone else with some experience will come in and lease it from the Fishburns, sure hope so.

I've never shot sporting clays there, but I've shot trap at the Cardinal Center - the last time being the Ohio State Shoot. I think the
place is mostly trapshooting oriented, sort of a replacement for Vandalia, Ohio - the former site of the Grand American and Ohio State trapshooting events.

There are several sporting clays courses in the Columbus,Ohio area and possibly too much competition to warrant a full time manager for the sporting clays course.

It is a sporting clays destination as well. They have really built up the sporting course. With Dan setting targets the palce was really great. I'm sure they had no trouble competeing with other courses in the area.

They hosted the Ohio State Sporting Clays Championship for the last two years and did a great job of it.

I don'think they are going to scrub the sporting clays part of the business. Lets just hope they give the sporting clays course the attention it needs.

That includeds a manager that shoots and understands the game of sporting clays.

Sorry to hear that, since he took over all of the traps were working and the course was radically different each time I was there (twice per month). Typically shoot 50 on the ez course and 50 on the hard one. When I was there 2 weeks ago, some of the traps were not working right, chalked it up to an oddity, perhaps it was lack of Dan making sure that the details were taken care of.

Nice place to shoot.

I agree that's what they need. It doesn't mean they'll get it - unless they can start running enough sporting clays shooters through there to make it profitable.

They have more than enough shooters at least until the change to make it profitable. Even in the recent very cold weather there have been many shooters. The availability of two different level courses, ability to shoot by yourself on all courses including 5-stand, and a viable weekly sporting course league with a change of presentation of 50 - 100 % of targets on a weekly basis had made this the premier venue in central Ohio. Certainly other clubs in the immediate area have seen a transfer of allegiance. If you go please express your concern about the change. D Bob
