Sporting Clays

Ready … aim … fire! Sporting Clays is a challenging, fun and competitive clay target game that simulates field hunting by having clays thrown to accurately simulate the flight patterns of game birds. Smith Fork Ranch provides training, guidance and tips for all levels of experience.

An Unparalleled Setting

Our Five Stand boasts one of the best backdrops imaginable – it’s so gorgeous you might be distracted from the task at hand. Thoughtfully situated among the scrub oak in the shadow of Saddle Mountain, the West Elk Range’s snow-capped Mendicant Ridge and Mount Guero loom overhead as you take aim at those whirling clays.

Top Gear

Our sporting clay center is equipped with state-of-the-art traps including a wobble trap, which accurately replicates the unpredictability of live-quarry shooting. A challenge, to say the least. You’ll be using some of the finest gear available: lightweight Beretta 12 and 20 gauge shotguns. Even if you’re a newcomer to shooting, a Smith Fork Ranch staff member will have you trained in no time.
