For those who are lacking the time required (or even money) for a full round of sporting clays, there is 5 Stand. A fast paced and action packed shooting sport, 5 Stand is sometimes referred to as mini sporting clays. Unlike Skeet and Trap, 5 Stand has a wide variety of targets thrown. With between 6 and 8 throwers, you will see everything from sliding, crossing & falling patterns of clays.
There are five shooting stands (hence the name) placed around the field. Each shooter will start in a separate stand and after each round, move to the next stand until each station has been shot. Each shooter will see 25 clays and the person who breaks the most, wins!
Skill level recommended
There are several clay shooting games set up for shooters at the Blackwood Gun Club Clay Range. People generally shoot clays for fun, to get ready for bird hunting or for competition and also as a networking or teambuilding activity. Clay shooting is a fast growing hobby among every age & gender and can be enjoyed by beginners alongside the expert shooter, which is great for family, business associates and friends, young and old.
CLAY FIELD FAQ
1Do I need to make a reservation to shoot?
No reservation is needed. However, we suggest that you check our event calendar or give us a call before planning your next trip to Blackwood & verify that no shoots are scheduled for that day.
2What type of shot shells can be used on the field?
We require that all shells be at least 71/2 shot or smaller.
3Can I bring my own golf cart?
Yes! We have parking for vehicles with trailers on the east end of the property.
4Will I be able to shoot 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.
I want to pass along my gratitude and appreciation for the work Cybelle and John did for our First Shots class this past weekend. We had a great day. 11 people (4 families) attended a mornig First Shots class and a group of 7 went through in the afternoon. It was an excellent, fun and educational day. Instructor John did a great job. Please Thank him for his service and please pass along our gratitude to the other veterans at Blackwood.
Blackwood Sporting Co. thank you for hosting our homeschool group. Its a great program. I look forward to our next visit. MERRY CHRISTMAS and God Bless.
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.
