What public venues or clubs open to the public would you all recommend to shoot a round of clays or 5 stand in coastal Maine. We are traveling to Bar Harbor to the Park and will do the lazy drive back over a week or so to NY. We would like to shoot here and there as we tour.

Thanks as usual

Varney's has a very good rep but it looks like it's for sale and appointment only. http://www.varneysclaysports.com/hours.html

This is a list from Gunners of Maine. https://www.gunownersofmaine.org/ranges#:~:text=Rangeley%20Region%20Skeet%20%26%20Trap%20Association%20%28Oquossoc%29%3A%20http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rrsta.org%2F,Gloucester%29%3A%20https%3A%2F%2Fwww.royalriverrodandgunclub.org%2Findex.html%20S%26S%20Weapons%2C%20LLC%20%28East%20Millinocket%29%3A%20https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fssweapons%2F

Blue Hill is near Bar Harbor. SSW of Ellsworth. 5-stand only. https://www.bluehillrpc.org/

Arnold Trail in Sydney (between Waterville and Augusta has skeet, trap, 5-stand, and sporting clays according to their website. http://www.arnoldtrail.com/wp/

L.L. Bean does 5-stand in Freeport

There's a bunch.

5-stand regular shooting days (open to public) are Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday AMs. 8-10 machines, three menus, typically. Usually start around 8:30-9:00. Can also shoot skeet or trap. 5-stand machines get put away around noon most days.

Today and tomorrow, 8/19-20, 100 bird Main and 100 bird Fluff NSCA shoots occupy all fields and the woods road. Open to registered or non-registered (Hunter class) shooters. The Fluff is very soft.

Thanks Mike, Yes several including LL Bean that will fit into our schedule. The plan is to go direct to BH and take a lazy drive back, stopping at various tourist spots and sporting venues.

Thanks all.
