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.

Under our skilled 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.

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.
