    Nice looking 10 station, 50 target Sporting Clays course with a good variety of presentations. Management is friendly and helpful. Took my dad here for his first time shooting clays and we both had a lot of fun. Will definitely go back next time I’m in the area.

    We visited the Old Vermillion Trail shooting range on July 2nd. We had a wonderful experience there. We brought two 15 year old girls to shoot trap and Alex pulled for the girls and was so nice and helpful. The owner Burt was a great guy he went out of his way to make sure we had a great time, he even gave us directions to get back to our cabin and saved us a lot of time:). We will defiantly return there again to shoot when we are up at the cabin. We will try the spotting clays next visit. It is a very well run range and the people who work there are very helpful and welcoming.

    This is a must if you are in the Duluth Mn area. Beautiful area and fun sporting clays layout. This is also the site of the Duluth Double Gun Side X Side Classic if your looking for a different type of shoot.

    Great course! There are a variety of shots that replicate what occurs when hunting pheasants, ducks, geese, woodcock, and the wily rabbit. They do a good job of mixing things up from one visit to the next.

    Nice walking course with stations pretty spread out. Beautiful in the fall. My Company – Courage Center, holds a charity shoot there in the late spring and it is a great course with great food!

    Shoot trap or skeet to warm up and then hit the course!
