No shooting except in designated stations and fields.

We allow YTF coaches to reserve fields for team practice. They must call or email at least 24 hours in advance and have at least 5 athletes with them to reserve a field. If they do not have 5 athletes then they will not be allowed to have an entire field to themselves, they may have to include other YTF shooters on their field (up to 5). For example, if the team brings 3 shooters, then 2 more shooters may join you. Our goal is to maximize the teaching ability at this facility. Reservations are NEVER GUARANTEED- weather and other range conditions can cause for a shut down without notice. We will do our best to notify coaches with as much notice as possible.
Coaches are not allowed to reserve fields for more than 2 hours at a time. They will need to rotate disciplines or fields. Coaches or athletes are not allowed to touch, load or move the machines, houses or any equipment. Call for help!
Coaches must follow all YTF rules or they can loose their ability to reserve fields. Be respectful. If they act up in any way they could loose this privilege, this is a management call.
General public may not reserve a field.
General public may reserve a portion of the facility for an event or party, please contact us for details- 940-230-1033
A 12 gauge shotgun is the most common shotgun shot at the range. Any shotgun that is smaller than a 12 gauge can also be shot at the range (i.e. 16 gauge, 20 gauge etc). This range is built for sporting shotguns. Barrel length must be longer than 18 inches, but barrels ranging from 24-32 inches will bring you the best experience. No shot larger than 7.5, 8 or 9 and never load more than 2 shells at any time (no exceptions)!
