Inside the Vernon National Shooting Preserve with Polly
I've always thought shooting stuff would be a good way to release all that built up negative energy. And I was right! Go inside the Vernon National Shooting Preserve, where I shoot for the first time.
The 500 acre range in Vernon Center features a fully automated 16 station clay course. I gave the first 2 stations a try after learning how to load and shoot a shotgun. After missing the first two while I got the hang of things, I hit 3 in a row. I think I'll be back.
The Preserve is family owned and operated and is open to members and the public. Don't own a gun? Don't worry. You can rent one there along with your ammo.
You can also try the skeet range, covered pistol range and rifle range There's also a spacious clubhouse and banquet area for group outings and special events including 'Shooting with Polly,' coming soon. Just don't forget to pet Lucy when you stop by.
