The pistol range offers 16 shooting lanes with ranges from 3, 7, 15, 25, 50, and 60. Shooters have the option of using paper targets or steel targets.
The rifle range currently has fourteen shooting positions on seven tables available. We have movable target stands and shooters are able to engage targets out to 300 yards.
Our sporting clay range stretches a length of .6 mile through the woods. It is a compact range with tight challenging shots. We use an electronic clay counting system that allows a single shooter to use the course when the time delay option is selected. There are twelve (12) shooting stations on the course. One complete round of sporting clays is 50 shots. We charge $.25 per clay with one complete round totaling $12.50. We have golf carts available for rent at $3.00 per day.
Turcotte has two (2) Olympic style skeet ranges on the premises for shooters to hone their shooting abilities throughout the year.
We now offer a "Kamikaze Dove Field" simulating actual hunting conditions to ready you for hunting season or just to test your skills.
