Exhilarating and fun, sporting clays isn't just for hunters. Our starter course is perfect for the beginning shooter and individuals who have never shot a shotgun before. After introductions and a safety talk, followed by some basic pointers on shooting clay targets with shotguns, you'll participate in a brief exercise to determine eye dominance. Then you'll learn the correct stance to properly shoot a shotgun and how to effectively hit a target. You'll have an opportunity to practice with an expert instructor by your side, who'll offer feedback and tips as you shoot clay targets.
All necessary shooting equipment is provided.
L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.
*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
