Where can you go skeet shooting around here?

Amy Hotz

Here are some places where you can do some skeet shooting:

Roans Branch Hunting Preserve, 1.8 miles down Green Lewis Road in Bolivia, offers skeet shooting by appointment. The preserve also holds upland bird hunts and European tower shoots for pheasant and mallard. Call 512-1707 for reservations or visit


Honey Hill Hunting Preserve is on Honey Hill Road in Hallsboro. It offers sporting clays, similar to skeet, and wobble trap, among other sports.

Call 640-7806 or go to


Buccaneer Gun Club offers skeet days to the public, usually at 1 p.m. on the second Sunday of the month. Check the Web site before making plans. buccaneergunclub.org/

    If you just want to shoot clays, grab a thrower and head to one of the local barrier islands. Nothing is more fun than shooting clays with sand under your feet and a beautiful marsh view!

    The places I listed are “proper” skeet fields with regulation high and low houses and “stations” spaced at the proper dimensions.
    There are also several places to go if you just want to toss clay pigeons around and bust them. Ye Olde Gun Club near St. James has a rudimentary trap machine anyone who pays entry can use.

    Shooting Clays on barrier islands probably isn’t such a good idea. Any lead shot that is ends up resting in the sand will sooner or later end up in the ocean. Federal waterfowl laws prohibit the use of lead shot over water for fear of lead contamination of the fish and ultimately anything that consumes them including fish eating birds, turtles and humans. Best to keep to inland official shooting sites.

    I think you can rent the regulation skeet range and a certified range officer in White Oak NC and the Scout Reservation through Cape Fear Council BSA as well but thats also by appointment only and has to be planned well in advance from what I am told. It is a very nice range however.. High/Low, remote pull, state of the art…
