Coyote Valley Sporting Clays
About Sporting Clays
Sporting clays allow guests to practice hunting. On each course, stations are set up in different scenarios, similar to golf courses. A mechanical trap throws up a clay disk that guests target with shotguns. The target simulates hunting different animals, such as a quail or a rabbit.
The Shooting Courses
Coyote Valley Sporting Clays is home to five courses. The main course is the largest, with 20 shooting stations, and it's mostly set up for beginners, although there are some more challenging ones along the way. All of the targets are fully automated. The mountain course is elevated above the valley, giving visitors a different perspective. There are also five-stand, trap, and skeet courses to allow guests to practice different angles and maneuvers and to play games.
At a Glance
Tom and Nancy Ebert opened Coyote Valley Sporting Clays in 1992. The couple built their business for experienced guests and newcomers alike. For example, more advanced visitors can play games on the skeet course. And beginners or those who don't have experience with a shotgun are required to take a safety lesson. Range marshalls patrol the facility to make sure safe practices are always being abided.
