Try Trap Shooting during Getaway
Ever thought you may like to
Experience Clay Pigeon / Trap shooting? - Well now you can.
Known for centuries as the "Spot of Aristocracy" Trap or as otherwise
known, Clay Pigeon shooting is a pastime of the elite few. An Olympic sport that Australians have excelled in for
quite some time. If you think you would like to try your hand and give the sport a go, you can!
When you come to stay a day or two at Riverview Rise Retreats I (Michael Chorney) will gladly introduce you to the
sport in a safe and friendly manner. For those who may not be familiar with the sport, the explanation is quite
simple. We use a mechanical contraption to throw a brightly coloured target (like a 3 inch frizby) made from
bio-degradable clay or tar mixture, into the air. You shoot them out of the sky and gain points. It's even more fun
when you compete with your partner or friends. If you have never fired a shot gun the initial sensation will be a
real rush of adrenalin. After that you will be one of us who just enjoy the sport. Your ear muffs will save you
from the shot blast but you will soon realize that the experience although initially challenging, is enjoyable and
addictive. You will love it!
Strange as it may seem to you, if neither of you have tried this sport
please be aware that the ladies usually out-shoot the men! It's possibly because they have a more care free
attitude where as the guys are more competitive in these things. So look out fellas, you're likely to be playing
second fiddle to you own Anny Oakley.
Regardless of which way you look at it,this is an activity you are not
likely to experience anywhere unless you become members of a Gun club so put your shoes on, tie your hair up,
sunnies on and let's have some fun.
We prefer to take you onto the trap field at around 10:30am. Giving other
guests a chance to sleep in. You can both take it in turns shooting or it may be just the one of you that needs
this adrenalin rush. Either way, you will both have plenty to do as there is more to the sport than just pulling
the trigger. There is no pressure to perform nor do we treat the activity in a truly competitive form. To us it is
about the Best Possible Fun Experience for out guests.
Our shooting range is on the property
located some 500 meters from your accommodation so there is no further travel required.
You can be as serious or casual as you like but you will definitely add a highlight to your
