19-Station Sporting Clays Course
As the Northeast’s premier sporting club and destination for shooting sports enthusiasts, The Preserve is proud to reveal our recently expanded 19-Station Sporting Clays Course. Here, members may walk or drive along wooded paths to 19 artfully constructed shooting pavilions with challenging prospects on a variety of open fields with diverse and rugged landscapes.
12-Station Compact Clays Course
The Preserve’s 12-Station Compact Clays Course features manicured shooting stations set amid naturally tall field grasses. These 12 wood-framed stations take thoughtful advantage of the landscape’s changing height elevations to provide sporting enthusiasts varietal shooting positions in a picturesque and natural setting.
Whether rain, shine, or snow, members may enjoy the Preserve’s two covered and heated 5-stand courses that provide 10 shooting positions and are beautifully built into the wraparound deck of a rustic and inviting hunting lodge. Positioned high on a hill, this lodge has an impressive prospect on the clays course providing incredibly over 250 different target presentations! Views of the surrounding landscapes only add to the enjoyment of this popular sport. The unique design of this clays course and hunting lodge also provides the perfect setting for 5-Stand tournaments, as well as corporate clays events year-round.
The Preserve is renowned as New England’s best pheasant hunting destination. Set within 3,500 unspoiled acres, man and dog can experience pheasant hunting throughout 8 lush sorghum fields and across vast natural landscapes framed by deep woods.
Whether you are shooting clean-up after one of our Continental Pheasant Hunts, or choose to reserve a morning for you and your friends for a private upland hunt, The Preserve can accommodate nearly any shooting experience. With expert guides and the best gun dogs provided, you are sure to enjoy an unparalleled pheasant hunting experience. In addition to pheasant hunting, upland hunting game can include chukars and quail.
“I’ve shot around the entire country and this is by far the best tower shoot and some of the best shooting grounds in the United States.” – Larry Martin CEO & Founder Field and Stream Products
High Tower Hunts
Our NEW European tower stands the tallest in the Northeast region at 210’ above its lowest station. With 12 stations, 24 shooters, and enough guides and dogs to support all of the fun, The Preserve is the latest and greatest in driven tower hunts this country has ever seen.
“The shot presentation was unlike anything I had ever experienced, the bird soared higher than I had ever seen in America. This is type of European hunt everyone should experience. The great sounds of shotguns firing and friends applauding surrounded us, echoing over the high rough pitch of crackling roosters all around. For a moment it was quiet, we all took a breath and glanced over the wall to take it all in.”
-Todd Corayer; The Double Gun Journal
Being host to numerous fields, ponds, and obstacle course settings, The Preserve is a great location to express all of you and your companions needs. Its said that sometimes hunting is isn’t about hunting at all. The Preserve’s many upland fields double in as the prefect settings to test both your dog’s physical and mental toughness. Relax in our tranquil settings with just you and your dog, working together on our private 1000 acres.
