Sporting Clay Shooting

What are Sporting Clays?  Sporting Clays is a shotgun shooting game in which clay pigeons are presented to the shooter in ways that mirror the flight pattern of game birds, and occasionally rabbits, in their natural habitats. There is no better way to prepare for bird season than with Sporting Clays!

At Brule Sporting Clays, located at Ski Brule Resort, offers over 50 separate shooting stations, including Road Reaction, 60’ Tower, Grouchy Grouse and Duck Pond that are perfect for both the first timer and the more advanced shooter. Shooters walk a half mile course and stop at various shooting stations that reproduce natural hunting situations. Each station represents one type of bird or a combination of game, for example, a rabbit and a grouse. At each of the stations, clay pigeons are thrown in pairs or singly. Each half mile course will consist of 50 to 100 total targets at several different stations.

You will never know what you’re going to get at Brule Sporting Clays. Birds in the same trap are sometimes shot from different positions, and there are many variations in trap position, trap speed, shooting position, flight paths and target size. A day on our courses will leave you on your toes and ready for whatever bird season can throw at you.

Everything you need for a day of shooting, including guns, ammo, instruction, food and beverages, is conveniently available for you at the clubhouse
