Thanks for the info & link Tim! I haven't been up that way but I will now (it's about a 2.5hr drive from where I'm at). I'll report back on the forum after my visit.

From the drone flyover...it doesn't look like "One of America's Largest Shooting Ranges"? To me it just looks spread out over a large area. I've certainly been to clubs larger. You are also correct that there aren't many "trap" clubs down here; at least compared to where I came from in the Midwest (MI & WI). In my observations from living down here for the past 5+yrs is that Sporting Clays is more popular in this area of the country.

This is good news, regardless of size.
Yes, it seems that Sporting and skeet are stronger in the South and Southwest, trap being stronger in the Mid-West. Why? No telling.......

Mostly based on what birds were hunted. Pheasant hunters shot going away flushed birds. Southern hunters shot quail over pointing dogs. More akin to skeet. Skeet was a gentleman's game as it required more expensive guns to shoot all the gauges.
