Five Stand is a shotgun sport shooting activity with five stations – or “stands” – and six to eighteen strategically placed clay target throwers. This activity gives hunters a chance to hone their shotgun skills and offers recreational shooters a chance to have fun. At the April 10 program, Dalton Range Supervisor Mike Brooks will discuss the appropriate guns and ammunition for this activity, the field layout, and safety. Firearms and ammunition will be provided or people can bring their own unloaded firearms to the program.

  • All students are encouraged to wear a facemask and must practice social distancing.
  • All students will be asked to use hand sanitizer when arriving and prior to handling firearms.
  • Everyone will be asked self-certification questions related to COVID-19. People who answer “yes” to any of the questions should not attend the workshop.
