shooting clays

5 posts in this topic

I am coming up for a long weekend over labor day and was looking for a place to take my son and shoot some clays around the Battle lake, Henning, Ottertail area. Anyone know where we can go? I have my own thrower and clays. Thanks for the replys.

This does not directly answer your question, but there is a sporting clays place just outside Dalton. They have a full course and the smaller set-up too. It will cost a few bucks, but you don't have to worry about the clay bird residue cluttering somebodys pasture or slough.

Then too, your son might pick up a few pointers at the place and the birds will fly way better than from a hand trap.

Just a thought.

Hey Jig Guy,

There is a shooting range just south of Perham and just east of Hwy 78. They have a clay pigeon range there and last I saw had a thrower. Bring your own pigeons and clean up after yourself and you should have a good time.

There is also another range around Henning, but I don't know where exactly.

the Henning rifle range also has a place for clays. South of Henning on the tar past the airport couple miles, turn east, there is a sign. Its out in the middle of no where.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
