    I saw a thread on here recently about a Trap Club near Gulf Shores, AL but now I can't find it. (I believe it mentioned Styx??) Please inform me of trap possibilities in this area. Charges would also be helpful if they are available. My wife and I are thinking of spending a month there this winter and I would love to be able to shoot some while there. Thanks, Jack

    From that ATA list of clubs in Alabama:

    http://shootata.com/content/ata_zones/club.aspx?clubid=010027

    That club's website:

    http://www.styxrivershootingcenter.com/

    The club looks to directly north of Gulf Shores, closer to Mobile than to GS. The club looks to have scheduled two Saturday shoots each month through November. Looks like they don't have shoots in December or January. Fees, hours, map, all on their website. Much better than some clubs' sites that I have seen.

    Hope this helps. No, I am nowhere near Alabama. Charlie

    I have shot Styx. Brad & his brother are working hard to make it a nice shooting range. They also offer a pistol range there. You have picked a good time to shoot there. Tim Hall

    Thank you Charlie and Tim. Do you know if they are closed in December/January, or have they jus suspended ATA targets during these months? Jack

    From their website: "Closed Christmas 12/25, Open Monday 12/26" They are normally open Tuesday through Sunday, will be open on Monday after Christmas. Seem only to have suspended ATA targets in December/January.

    I get all of this from their website. I am nowhere near Alabama.

    They are open year round. I shoot there a couple of times a week. We get a lot of Snowbirds in the winter. So, you won't be alone. Stix is directly north of Gulf shores. I live a few miles from the Beach and the ride is about 24 miles and takes 30 minutes.
