Public shooting range with sporting clays & wobble trap. A premiere sporting clays shooting facility located in rural Wayne County, seven miles northeast of Cisne, Illinois. Currently, offering twelve stations with 20 automatic machines, including a wobble trap, a battue, and a Rabbit. Our country setting allows us to present stations in the woods, on a hillside, in a marsh, and in open fields. We also surround a placid eight acre lake. On any given day, you can see the fish splash in the water, and hear the frogs croaking. Shooters have frequently reported seeing curious deer watching them from the shelter of the woods. Crisscrossing meadows, woods and marshes are all weather graveled nature paths winding thru miles of natural beauty. Both new and experienced shooters can appreciate the natural backdrop as they enjoy the sport. GPS> N38 33' 11.24" W088 22' 01.78"
