Course Description

Whether you're interested in sporting clays or bird hunting, have fun shattering clay targets one after another in this three-hour course. Our staff includes expert and National Sporting Clays Association-certified instructors who will teach you all the skills you need to start shooting shotguns. They'll give you a solid introduction to shotgun safety tips and basic shooting techniques. They'll also teach you responsible gun handling and review different shotgun types, plus their uses and advantages.

Under our seasoned instructors' guidance, you'll have plenty of time to develop and try your new shooting skills at our range. L.L.Bean's Fogg Farm, in Freeport, Maine, offers an excellent venue for practice, with a fully appointed Five-Stand Sporting Clays facility that offers various target presentations.

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.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*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.
