The pistol range offers 16 shooting lanes with ranges from 3, 7,
15, 25, 50, and 60 yards. Paper targets only.
The rifle range currently has fourteen shooting positions on seven
tables available. We have movable target stands and shooters
are able to engage targets out to 300 yards.
Our sporting clay range stretches a length of 1.3 miles through
the woods. It is a newly constructed range with
challenging shots through a woodland course. We use an
electronic clay counting system that allows a single shooter to use
the course when the time delay option is selected. There are
twelve (12) shooting stations on the course. One
complete round of sporting clays is 50 shots. We charge $.25
per clay; thus, if you throw
only 50 clays/round, that round will cost you a
total of $12.50. We have golf carts available for rent
at $5.00 per day.
Turcotte has two (2) Olympic style skeet ranges
on the premises for shooters to hone their shooting
abilities throughout the year.
We offer a "Kamikaze Dove Field" simulating
actual hunting conditions to ready you for hunting season or just
to test your skills.
Turcotte offers a 3D
archery range utilizing both known and unknown
distance shots in a safe environment.
