Welcome to Sporting Clays and 5 Stand!
Our discipline offers Sporting Clays, Five Stand, a Patterning Station and Certified Instruction all successfully run by volunteers. The facility is purposely designed for novice and expert levels of shooters whether it is one shooter or a group.
Office Area: You will be greeted by a knowledgeable member to assist with your shooting needs for the day. Bring your shotgun, hearing and eye protection and shells 7.5 and smaller target loads only.
Sporting Clays: Follow the orange signs to the Sporting Clays range. Twisted Tree, a 16 station course, gives a great simulation of rabbits, waterfowl and upland birds that will offer the novice success and the veteran shooting a challenge.
Five Stand: 5 Stations with multiple machines provides a fun shooting area where you can observe multiple birds from one location. It is a type of shotgun sport combining sporting clays, trap and skeet. Shooters shoot in turn at the various combinations of clay birds.
Training/Warm Up Station: One station with four traps giving the shooter an opportunity to hone their skills or take a lesson.
ATV: Designated parking for ATV trailers for those that choose to ride through our pathways.
We welcome you to Sporting Clays and hope that you will join our adventure. Bring a friend or join in with a group.
“Twisted Tree” the Sporting Clay experience you have been waiting for is OPEN!!!!
When you gather a progressive thinking group of volunteers and they all commit to the same vision, great things do happen. At the Redmond Rod and Gun Club, Redmond, Oregon, the Sporting Clays Team has designed and constructed “Twisted Tree”, an incredible sporting clays course with 16 stations and over 40 target presentations all well placed within sage brush, juniper trees and mossy lava rock.
Late in the fall of 2019 a southern circular course, appropriately named for the twisted tree located on the 6th station, was presented to the group. In just four months the 1 mile compacted gravel pathway was completed and the first station went up. Most of the 16 - 6x12’ stations are covered and four of them offer elevated platform shooting with all having gun racks and benches. They are large enough for a shooting squad to use the Long Range electronics and most provide mountain views from Mt Hood to Mt Bachelor.
The pathway is ATV friendly and is easily walked with just enough separation from station to station where the shooter feels as if they are the only one participating. All of the materials for construction of the course were donated by shooters and local businesses. The stations were built entirely with volunteer labor.
Twisted Tree is definitely a Bucket List course that each of us should put on our shooting schedule. There is no electricity on site so the check in station, maintenance building, every battery operated throwing machine and each card reader is solar charged. A friendly volunteer will greet you and from there your experience begins. Enjoy safe target shooting at this club established in 1945.
