Skeet shooting, like playing tennis in stilettos, requires quick reflexes, demands excellent aim, and destroys a lot of clay. Pulverize pottery with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 90-minute round of sporting clays at Amelia Shotgun Sports, LLC in Yulee (a $60 value). Each round includes shells, earplugs, safety glasses, gun rental, and 50 targets.
Amelia Shotgun Sports LLC equips sharpshooters with firearms and two boxes of 25 shells as they embark on extensive sporting-clay, five-stand, and FITASC sporting courses. After strapping on safety glasses, fastening earplugs, and sliding on third-eye protectors, patrons can embark along a circular sporting-clay trail replete with 24 stations and six targets types amid forested terrain. Five-stand sequences grant gunsmiths aerial vantages on their targets. Squads of up to six shooters fire at a series of parcours on FITASC courses, which blend elements of American sporting clay with Scottish curling and French regulations such as taking shots in strict rotations. Following spirited rounds of gunfire, visitors can retire to the clubhouse, which boasts a welcome area and a store vending guns and accessories.
Amelia Shotgun Sports
Located on a working timber farm, Amelia Shotgun Sports boasts a sprawling terrain, home to a scenic setting, on which patrons can shoot sporting clays, skeet, trap, or 5-stands. Beginners can rest easy with trained staff instructors, Barbara Martin and Rick Wallace, who teach the basics and safety of handling a shotgun and then cheer them on as they acquire their first moving target. Visitors are invited to test their stance, aim, and focus across their 3 sporting clays courses, a total of 30 stations. Winding through lush forests and fields, each station lets sportsmen hone in on clay targets amid realistic forest hunting conditions. The facility also challenges sportsmen with skeet and trap fields as well as a five-stand field that tests even the most experienced shooters.
