Paper Target Shooting 

Whether you are sighting in your rifle for opening day or introducing your granddaughter to your old 22 rifle, you’ll feel at home and safe on our rifle and pistol ranges. We are known for having one of the largest, safest and best run public outdoor rifle and pistol shooting ranges in the state of Wisconsin. 

At our rifle and pistol ranges, you’ll find black powder and bench rest enthusiasts, experts and novices alike enjoying their deer rifles and defensive handguns, single shots and the latest modern auto loaders. Trained range officers are always on hand to assist with problems, to give advice and to make sure that the range and safety rules are strictly enforced for everyone’s safety.

Positions are available at both ranges at 25, 50, 100, 200, and 300 yards. 

Sporting Clays

BULLESSYE.jpg

Golf with a Shotgun  

Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting, often described as “golf with a shotgun” because a typical course includes from 10 to 15 different shooting stations laid out over natural terrain, which each station (or hole) having its own unique presentation.  Sporting clays offers a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes. Every course is different, much like golf.

Eye-twisting target presentations as well as the variety of models of clay targets make the sport extremely interesting. Our sporting clays course operate using a TargetKey counting system, which count how many clays you launch and allows shooters to utilize any combination of the clay target presentations – whether it be singles, reports or true pairs. The system also offers a delay feature for individual shooters.

 

Currently our course is designed for the beginner shooter and has a total of 14 stations. 

We are working to improve our experience in the coming year with two courses designed for beginners and competitor shooters alike. The combined course will be available in summer of 2024. 

 

Coming Soon

The Combined Course – the combined course has 14 stations with four automatic clay target throwers at each station. The A’s and B’s on the combined course are easy and the C’s and D’s are of medium difficulty. The combined course has relatively easy to medium shots with a lot of presentations that simulate wing-shooting. This is a great course for a mixed group of both experienced and novice shooters.

A condensed version of Sporting Clays 

Heated 5 Stand

5-Stand is very similar to sporting clays in that a wide variety of clay targets are thrown. There are five “stands” or shooting positions to shoot from. There are usually somewhere between six and eight different throwers. Participants shoot in turn at each of the five stands, attempting five targets from each stand. One round consists of 50 targets per person.

 

Five-Stand is a great way to get a sporting clays-like experience in a small amount of time and walking distance. It is also a great warm-up for the full course.

 

We have one 5-stand house that is enclosed and heated during the colder months. In the summer, we open the windows and shooters can shoot in the comfort of some shade.

The Origional Clay Shooting Games

Skeet & Trap

Skeet utilizes two machines for presentations from eight shooting stations. The targets emerge from a high house ten feet above ground on the left and a low house 3-1/2 feet above ground on the right. Targets face one another forty yards apart and pass fifteen feet above a crossing stake set twenty yards from the shooting stations. Shooting stations are arranged around an arc running from one house to the other. A round of skeet consists of twenty-five shots, beginning with a high-house bird at station one, then a low house bird, then a double at one, two, six, and seven.

 

In trap, the targets are thrown from a single automatic trap quartering away from the shooter at various angles. One to five shooters move through five positions, shooting 5 shots at each – totaling twenty five targets in one round. We recommend trap for beginning shooters and novices.

Throw Your Own Clays

Novice Trap Range

Novice Trap utilizes one spring loaded hand machine for presentations straight from the shooting box. The targets emerge from left side of the shooting box flying straight in front of the shooter, making this the perfect beginner practice range to get acclimated with clay shooting. Two people are needed for this activity as one person is needed to work the spring-loaded hand machine along with the person shooting the target. 

Novice Clays is open year-round and offers 6 shooting stands allowing many shooters the options to enjoy all at once. 

Targets must be bio-degradable and pre-purchased from our pro shop located at the main lodge.

Golf with a Bow 

3D Archery & Crossbow & Practice Feild

3D archery is a modern style of outdoor archery, where the participants shoot three-dimensional life-sized animal targets. Archers hike along a trail and face challenges, designed as different bowhunting scenarios.

This style of archery introduces different challenges than the traditional style, like distance judging and partially hidden targets, but also requires high-level bow shooting skills.

To ensure fun and safety for everyone - shooters on our 3D Archery Range can use only field tips on their arrows!

Block targets placed at 10, 35, and 45 yards are available for sighting in your crossbow along with three designated benches to help assist with the sight in. 

McMiller Sports Center continues to grow in this industry by adding additional targets, towers, and suspension connection bridges at different elevations to simulate an even more realistic hunting environment. 

League shooting is available in the early spring and early fall. To join or find out more information, check out our events page.

Ski & Shoot 

Biathlon Range

The biathlon is a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. It is treated as a race, with contestants skiing through a cross-country trail whose distance is divided into shooting rounds. The shooting rounds are not timed per se, but depending on the competition, missed shots result in extra distance or time being added to the contestant's total.

McMiller Sports Center has a rich history of Biathlon athletes along with some of the best terrain in Southern Kettle Moraine to practice on.

 

Whether you're looking to try for the first time or you're an Olympic athlete training, McMiller has some of the best terrain in the state as long as mother nature comes through for us!
