10 day sporting clay road trip

A friend and I are planning on taking a 10 day sporting clay road trip. We will do this in March/April.

If you had this opportunity, where would you start and what would you not miss. We will fly anywhere in the lower 48 and drive around shooting.

Ideas?

Are you talking about shooting registered NSCA tournament stuff, or just shooting nice places. Northbrook, north of Chicago, Hermitage (Joe Cantey's place) in Camden, SC; Rick Hemingway's Back Woods Quail, also in SC; M&M in southern NJ and a ton of others all over.

What's your most logical starting point?

IF you like registered stuff, and can move your trip up a month, February is THE month to be shooting in Florida as you can 4-5 weeks shooting one big blast after another. You won't find finer targets in such a short time frame.

It doesn’t have to be registered! The starting point doesn’t matter, we will fly and rent a car. We could fly to South Carolina and drive to Florida?

SC to FL is an easy drive, stopping at good places en route in GA. There are a few clubs, like South Florida Shooting Club, that are private-members only EXCEPT when they are throwing ATA, NSSA, or NSCA shoots. Their club house and gun room is first rate.

Registered shoots and clubs:

FL clubs - FLORIDA CALENDAR: SHOOTERSPAGES, SHOOTERSPAGETX, Sporting Clays, Skeet shooting, trap shooting, FITASC, Helice, 5 Stand

GA clubs - GEORGIA CALENDAR: SHOOTERSPAGES, SHOOTERSPAGETX, Sporting Clays, Skeet shooting, trap shooting, FITASC, Helice, 5 Stand

SC clubs - SOUTH CAROLINA: SHOOTERSPAGES, SHOOTERSPAGETX, Sporting Clays, Skeet shooting, trap shooting, FITASC, Helice, 5 Stand

ALL clubs:

Texas isn't a bad place to come shoot. Huge varieties of terrain, bunches of clubs. I'm at the JL Bar Ranch & Resort on the edge of the Hill country, about 90 miles north of the Mexican border at Del Rio. We have a great place to stay and shoot. You can check our website out, The JL Bar Ranch & Resort | Sonora, Texas | Corporate Retreats. We will keep you as busy shooting as you want to be for a couple of days! lol

South Carolina has Back Woods Quail Club near Georgetown, Hermitage Farms in Camden, and Rocky Creek Sporting Clays off I-77 between Columbia and Charlotte. Rocky Creek has three courses, one for every level shooter. Also great clubs in GA and NC.
