    While on a recent visit to Mississippi, my brother suggested that I might like to shoot a round of Sporting Clays at Turcotte, a facility managed by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks. Other than ranges for pistols and rifles, Turcotte has one Sporting Clays Course. It is located in a heavily wooded area full of beautiful old growth pines and hardwoods adjacent to the Ross Barnett Reservoir. This is a fairly compact course which could be easily walked, but a limited number of carts are available. It was a delightful experience. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. The targets were fairly soft as singles, more challenging when shot as reports, and could prove to be very challenging shot as true pairs. I am a long time Sporting Clays shooter who found the targets to be just right for average to better shooters. I would definitely return on my next visit to the area.

    Stopped here on my way to Oklahoma. This is a great place! Folks are very nice and hospitable. Wife and I were able to walk the sporting clay course. Path on course is paved! We did walk a gravel road before getting to course but it was nice. They do have carts, we just like (and are able) to walk. I will stop here again.

    I have been living in the area for several years and I am just now getting familiar with Turcotte range. Cost, well you can’t beat it, 5.50 an hour for pistol and rifle range time. The rifle range is sometimes flooded so it is not always available. The pistol range is a fifty yard range but set up for seven yard shooting for target shooting. I don’t know when they open up the longer range. This is a very safe shoot. You can only shoot when there is a range officer present. Reno is the one that is usually there. He is a nice friendly guy but he runs a safe line and there will be no unsafe shooting. This is a state run facility and I am glad that it is here. The next closest place for me to shoot would be thirty miles away at a private range for a lot more money. I would reccomend Turcotte to anyone who wants to enjoy a safe, no stress, day on the range, handgun, rifle or shotgun. I understand there are also instruction classes for various aspects of shooting but I am not familiar with those.
