    I use to visit down to Hickory for about 3 or 4 years I found the folks at Morganton and Gastonia very friendly folks to shoot with . VCery nice clubs lights for shooting at night.

    .

    Thought Hickory was the home of the world championship 500 yard groundhog and egg shoot held in April each year.

    Didn't know they allowed short range guns in Hickory.

    Gastonia would be a better choice than Morganton, as they have a core group of trap shooters. Morganton does not have much in the way of trap shooters, as it was skeet only for many many years. Also, at Morganton, the only trap field is a combo trap/skeet and many times you have to wait for the skeeters to clear off the field after shooting and flapping their pie-holes, then set up the voice release, and in all likelihood, reload the trap. Gastonia is 7 days a week. Morganton is Wednesday afternoon and Sunday afternoon only. Although a little outside your 45 minute travel window, I would also suggest Watauga Gun Club just outside of Boone. It's members only except during shoots, but well worth the membership $.

    Skeeters flap their pie-holes because they can. Try to talk to a trapshooter and he'll tell you: "Shut up, you're setting off the Canterbury!"
