Clays

The Fin, Fur and Feather Club offers its members three well maintained fields for skeet and trap, normally available for shooting on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, as well as holidays. Two fields are set up as combination fields for both skeet and trap. The third field is a regulation size trap field utilized for practice and special events. The fields feature automatic Beomat Traps and a Canterbury Voice Release System. Singles, Doubles and Handicap Targets are thrown to National Skeet Shooting Association and American Trap Association standards.

Each year we hold a number of inter- and intra-club matches, including the Medfield Golden and Route 109 Trap Shoots, Club Trap and Skeet Championship shoots, and a number of lucky target shoots.

5-Stand

Our  5-Stand layout provides challenging targets similar to regular sporting clay's, but in a more compact area. Five targets are shot on each of five stations. Seven different traps provide various target presentations including incoming, quartering, teal, rabbit, and targets from a tower behind the shooters. Five-Stand is great fun and sharpens your shooting skills. Beginning shooters, as well as intermediate and advanced, enjoy the array of targets that can be practiced from the five shooting stations.

Fin Fur and Feather Club

There are three levels of difficulty: Level I, five single targets; Level II, three singles and a double; Level III, one single and two doubles. Shooters can move from station to station with a predetermined menu of shots and combinations, or in a sequence unknown to the shooters.

Ammunition

We shoot non-toxic loads at the Fin, Fur, and Feather. 12 and 20 gauge steel shot ammunition is available for purchase in the Skeet House.

Members may bring their own shells, either factory loads or reloads. The maximum shot size is #6, and the shot load limit is 1 1/8 oz. All shells not purchased from the club are subject to verification.

Shooting Hours

Saturday & Sunday 12:00 - 3:30PM

5-Stand is scheduled for the third weekend of each month, and at other times depending on demand (usually the highest on Sundays).

Please note that The Fin, Fur and Feather is a private club, open to members and their guests only. Members may host a maximum of two guests at a time, and any one person may shoot as a guest a maximum of three times during the year.

Fees

$11 per round, including shells

$3 per round w/o shells

Youth Trap

The Fin, Fur, and Feather Club has a Youth Trap Program, the "Hot Shots", that participates in the nationally recognized Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), a competitive shotgun program organized by the National Governing Body of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF). The program provides youth from middle school through high school with the opportunity to participate in the fun and challenging sports of Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays. Either the shooter or their parent/guardian must have a Massachusetts State Firearms Identification (FID) Card or a License To Carry (LTC) to legally transport their firearms to/from the Club. For those not licensed or in the process of becoming licensed, the team has a limited number of shotguns available for use at the club and competitions and may also be used by athletes who do not yet own a shotgun.
