    Where are they throwing registered targets in Mass in the month of October? I can only find one club on the ATA site in East Deerfield throwing birds on the 14th. Is this the only shoot that month in the whole state? Looking for a place to shoot while out there on business next month.

    GoldEx the reason that you can only find one club throwing ATA targets in Oct. is because that is the only shoot in Oct.

    Just out of curiosity where are you going for business what Town/City someone might be able to suggest a club that is close for practice. ATA shoots after Sept. 1, in New England have a tendency to dry up everyone is into some form of hunting and the States are not that big so travel is not a problem. Some of the shooters bow hunt 2 or 3 States. Sorry I can't do more than that for you. I hope business is good for you anyway.

    There are only 6 clubs throwing ATA targets. Yes the 14th is the last that I know of for calender year. Try Claytargets.com for other clubs that may be closer to your destination here in mass.

    If you're going to be in MA, why not check out NH. Depending where you will be, it might not be that much of a drive. There are a lot of clubs in NH. Also, ME is only like 30 minutes up Rt.95 from MA. Steve

    Thanks for all of the info guys. I am trying to put together a trip to Billerica to look at the shot curtain there on behalf of our gun club. I hate to travel all that way and not shoot a registered bird or two. The club in East Deerfield is about 80 miles from the club we are visiting.

    This should give a good idea of some other clubs in the area. I hear Ipswich Mass fish and game also has a new shot curtain up. Also holbrook sportsman club has A shot/sound shield up. Like a big fence.

    All though a good ride from bilerica, Scarborough Fish and game in Maine has events oct 6,7,14,21. All new I believe. will try to get up there next year. Your best bet is to go to ATA and check surounding states for clubs throwing ATA in ma me and nh.
