Best Shoot Yet!

Thanks to all the participants who came out to Kelowna’s Central Okanagan Shotgun Sports Club for one of our best attended shoots yet. New members, novices and veterans all survived the chilly weather for some great fun. Thanks very much for your support. Our next shoot will be November 22 and it will probably be warmer. In the meantime we are open every Saturday and Sunday from 10 o’clock.

Trap Shooting Kelowna – Blasting The Entrance

Trap Shooting Kelowna – we found an excellent site close to Kelowna then started to build a proper access and prepare the trap and skeet fields. A tremendous amount of work was done by our members clearing the trees, blasting and building the road and doing the same for our fields to provide an exceptional layout for our shooters. By August of 2019 we will have 2 trap fields and 2 skeet fields.

Blasting the Trap Field

Once we had the road complete we needed to level the Trap Field.

Come on up for a visit and see how far we’ve come. Trap and Skeet shooting on the weekends with more shooting days as the weather improves. Any questions call one of our members.

Our Club

The Central Okanagan Shotgun Sports Club is the newest shotgun shooting club in British Columbia! This new property is 60 acres and will eventually have 5 Traps, 2 Skeet fields, a 5 Stand layout and 10 Sporting Clay stations. All of this has already been given approval for shooting by the Chief Range Inspector. The first year was spent clearing the land and getting the skeet houses and 1 trap house built and we can shoot either one of these venues now. This summer we will be completing our second Trap field as well as our second Skeet Field. The club will be work in progress for a long time as money, people and equipment is needed to keep moving forward.
