Sporting Clays is the fastest growing shooting sport in the world. It was invented by bird hunters in England to practice their skills where they launched breakable targets into the air to shoot at. Currently, sophisticated “trap” launchers throw biodegradable clay discs to mimic the flight of birds. The object of the sport is to see who can hit the most clays. The “flight pattern” of each clay thrown is limitless. Some are easy to hit, some very hard.
5-STAND SHOOTING – Lessons ONLY
This is a wooden shooting platform with different “stations” for each shooter. There are 9 trap machines throwing clays either singly or two at a time.We use this platform to teach new or never shooters gun safety, correct body movements and strategy for hitting flying targets! We have developed a teaching progression using proper trap placements to insure success for the first time ever shooter and for the advanced shooter.
*We have modified our 5-stand to accommodate 15 guests at one time. The perfect activity for wedding parties and groups. A fun social event enjoyed by everyone ages 10 and up!

“We were pleased to see the facility at Sage Sporting Clays is back up and running! Our group of approximately 100 shooters has been making the trip up to Wolcott, CO from Denver, CO for over 5 years. We were very impressed with the improvements made by the staff of Sage Sporting Clays this year. All the equipment performed to expectations and the target presentations were both interesting and challenging. The five stand, being the focal point for many in the group, performed flawlessly, what a great time!”

“Hooked On Shooting”
“This place is awesome! 360 views and a great time! My group took private shooting lessons. Our instructor was Ted, who is a wealth of knowledge. He even knew all the names of the surrounding mtns. He was super friendly, patient and easy to understand which we appreciated since most of us were 1st time shooters. By the time we were done my group and I were shooting like pros! Ted has lots of experience and it shows! Best outdoor activity we have found in CO. Highly recommended. Cant wait to return back to shoot.”
