Apr 10, 2017 @ Sportsmans Club of Franklin County

Sportsmans Club of Franklin County (St. Albans, Vermont)

It takes about 1hr 20min for us to drive to the club, so when summer like weather (mid 70's) was the forecast we decided to take advantage.  Three others (two from New York) had the same idea and both skeet and trap were shot.

We shot on a Monday, but the clay target portion of the club is open for skeet and trap (summer schedule) on Thursday (after 3pm) and Sunday starting at 9am.

Outdoor pistol/rifle range is open seven days a week and gets a good workout each day judging by the traffic and sound of shooting.  The club also offers archery.

We last visited the club in late 2016 and it wintered well.  Machines running like a fine watch and we didn't have any target issues.

The fee charged to shoot is reasonable priced for both members and non-members.  A family can come out with a value pack or two and have an enjoyable day without breaking the bank.

The club no longer offers registered skeet but I remember attending NSSA shoots in the 80's.  A squad or two from New York and a squad from Quebec always in attendance.  Also, it was not unusual to run into shooters from Maine or NH and of course always a strong showing from Vermont shooters. 

An enjoyable place to shoot and we'll be visiting often.
