Off Season Shooting

Postby xtrema13 » Thu Mar 13, 2014 9:32 am

Looking for a offseason shooting place. I just got a new job and found out I can't go to my usual place which is on Friday nights anymore because I have to work. Anyone know any good clubs or places to practice in northern il?

What kind of shooting, and which part of N. IL/how far are you willing to travel?

The Sycamore Sportsmans Club is pretty good. 5 bucks for a round of trap shooting if not a member. 3 if a member. They also have a range for pistols/rifles but I have no clue about that. Nice club, good people.

The St. Charles Sportsmen Club is a great place in Elburn IL. It is not open to the public but you can purchase a trap membership or shooters membership which includes trap and sporting clays. The club offers skeet and a pistol/rifle range as well but you need to be a full member for that. If you google it, the club's website has all the information you'll need.

If you have any farmers in your area that have feedlots ask permission to shoot starlings that are probably eating their feed. Great practice and a lot more fun to shoot than clays. :thumbsup:
