SKEET AND TRAP

Shooting Sport Facilities

Trap, the oldest shotgun shooting sport in America, is available at Blackwood Gun Club. Trapshooting derives its name from the device, called a trap which throws clay targets in the air at varied angles going away from the shooter. The trap can be set to oscillate up and down and right and left creating a wide variety in random sequence. The “game of trap” is shot in squads of 5 shooters and consists of 25 targets. The trap field has 5 positions numbered 1-5 left to right. Shooters are thrown 5 targets or “birds” from each position. After 5 targets shooters rotate right and the far right comes around to position 1 on the far left. Trap can be set up for less shooters and can be set not to oscillate to give beginning shooters a great way to start out shooting.

Blackwood Gun Club also has Skeet which uses the same clay targets & throwers as trap. There are two trap houses, a “high house” on the left and a “low house” on the right. Both traps throw targets at a fixed angle. Skeet is usually shot in squads of 5. A skeet field has eight shooting positions or stations which are usually numbered 1-8 from left to right with # 8 in the center. A round of skeet consists of 25 targets. Some stations are singles and some are doubles. Ask for a score-sheet and game rules if you want to shoot the game of skeet, or just enjoy shooting singles or doubles from some of the stations for a good practice round.

Range Hours:
Monday – Sunday: 9am to 6pm


Pricing:
Round of Skeet: $10.50 (25 clays)
Round of Trap: $10.50 (25 clays)

What type of shot shell can be used on the field?

Can I bring my own golf cart?

Yes! We have parking for vehicles with trailers on the east end of the property. We also allow ATVs.

Will I be able to shoot clays by myself, or do I need a ``puller?``

Here at Blackwood, we recently automated our Sporting Clay Fields. You can now shoot Sporting Clays by yourself. Simply set your preferred delay on the control box and get ready. Skeet & Trap now have a voice operated remote that can be clipped on a belt or pocket making it possible to shoot alone.

What people say about us

Great place to shoot. Reasonably priced, friendly service and the Range Safety Officer (RSO) was fantastic. Not only did he do a great job of ensuring we all shot safely but he offered VERY helpful tips and added a very much appreciated bit of "expert advice" to my sighting in process.

Blackwood is my favorite range in the area. Their pricing is fair and their facilities are great. Their staff is very friendly and helpful as well. One of my favorite aspects of this range are the lanes. It is outdoor, of course, and the range terrain dips down and back up, so you can set targets at 25, 50, 100, and 200 yards from a single lane and clearly see all 4 targets. I love being able to shoot multiple guns at different distances from just one lane without having to change targets in between. Strongly recommend this range.
