Trap and Skeet Range

Range Overview


Regulations

Rockville Fish & Game's Trap & Skeet Fields invite you to test your hand/eye coordination against a moving target.

Shot-gunners can try at straight away clays from the Trap house or Upland game hunters can sharpen their skills and reaction times from the Skeet houses.  Shooters can compete in registered ATA shoots or amongst each other.

The fields are located just down the road from the clubhouse on the right.  The range is open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday for members and their guests.  Members shoot at a reduced rate and the club now has shotguns for members to use.  Gunners are required to bring their own shells, but clays abound.  Refreshments and snacks are always available at "the house", and on occasion, some down home cookin'.

With three fields to pick from, you're bound to have fun!  Come down and shoot with the experts!  Plenty of advice is available for the novice as well as for the more experience shooter.  Or, share your expertise!

Note:  The fields as well as the Club House are handicap accessible.
