A: We have target ranges where you can sight in your rifle or pattern your shotgun, trap-shooting fields where you can dust clay pigeons, and a wooded archery trail where you can shoot arrows at 3-D animal targets.
A: Kids are welcome to shoot, of course. We also have hunting clinics for kids and adults that teach them how to hunt deer, turkeys, ducks — you name it. And we offer courses so people can get their hunter education card.
A: We see nearly 1,000 visitors a week. Most mornings, folks are lined up at the door before we open. It’s a popular place.
A: Helping someone who hasn’t shot much — who might even be fearful — gain confidence and start hitting the target.
A: Lots of folks show up and say: “I haven’t shot much. Can you help me?” If we have plenty of staff, we’ll send volunteers into shooting booths to coach people until they feel comfortable shooting by themselves. Customer service is our second biggest priority at Henges.
A: Keeping people safe.
