Welcoming first-time shooters and seasoned marksmen, Tom Lowe Trap & Skeet Range (formerly Wolf Creek Trap & Skeet Range) sets aspiring dead-eyes loose on 20 combination trap-and-skeet fields. Armed with a gleaming steel-and-wood boomstick, guests take aim at 25 clay pigeon targets, blasting the wingless birds out of the sky before they get a chance to return and exact grisly vengeance. All sessions are fully supervised by staff and include protective eyeglasses and earplugs to keep guests from hearing the shouted obscenities of bullets that miss their target.
Tom Lowe Trap & Skeet Range
A shotgun-only facility, Tom Lowe Trap & Skeet Range invites beginner marksmen to shoot across 20 combination trap-and-skeet fields as well as a five-stand sporting-clays field. At each of these areas, clay pigeons launch into the sky above dense forests and rolling hills. Shooters as young as 10 (with proper supervision) can target the wingless birds during practice sessions and competitive leagues. Tom Lowe Trap & Skeet Range also partners with local independent instructors, who train beginner shooters to shoot and track the migratory patterns of clay pigeons.
Before hitting the field, visitors can rent a gun from Deshotels Arms, Inc., the onsite pro shop. The shop also sells ammo, used guns, and new shotguns from brands such as Beretta.
