    quite possibly my favorite venue. Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays, just 8 miles north of Allentown, PA. Used to be a quarry and old mining camp. Many, many stations, treed asphalt access road, lakes, water/rest stations and some of the best target presentations you'll ever see. Check the place out if you're ever nearby...

    old Slugo getting an early start, well, not too early...

    I agree,..one of the coolest places to shoot Sporting Clays around...I'm always tempted to sneak my pocket fisherman on the course to try snagging some of those big bass you see swimming under the quarry shot overhanging decks...shooting 100targets then fighting a 5lb'er...what could be better??

    Just got back myself from there myself- bit warm but still an enjoyable morning. Shot a Browning 425 in 20 gauge I just acquired- love it.

    Beautiful! Would love to drive up for a round or two.

    Let's see, Fort Worth to Allentown = 1500 miles each way. Well, maybe in the next life.

    BTW guys, I had the opportunity to handle a new Fabarms XLR5 30"/black in the LVSC pro shop. Damn, that gun is really put together! Feels like something requisitioned by the Navy Seals. Robust is putting it mildly. Now only if I could actually shoot one...

    LV is quite the place and don't let your skill level hold you back. This is the place. Try to go during the week if you can. We get up a couple times a year with the Rugged Gear Carts so we can take some subgauge gun also. We're usually up for the humbling experience of Sporting Clays. Have fun.

    all targets have a specific degree of difficulty, but all are make-able. I loved the targets that were thrown across the lake, you could see how badly you missed by seeing the shot-stream pattern hit the water! The course designer did a remarkable job...
