Kansas Controlled Shooting Areas

No matter if it’s to sharpen your shooting skills for hunting, competing in a clay target tournament or simply shooting holes in paper bullseyes with your family, there’s a Kansas shooting range perfect for your needs.

Actually, there are probably several!

Kansas holds some of America’s top sporting clays courses and has hosted national and world championships. Several places are complete destination shooting locations with sporting clays, five-stand, skeet and trap ranges, plus five-star meals and accommodations.

At a smaller price, Kansas is dotted with “mom and pop” sporting clays courses that combine shooting clay targets with a nice walk around their farm. Many are at hunting clubs, so you can follow shooting clay pigeons with walks for pheasant or quail.

Since the days of the Old West, Kansas has been a haven for handgun and rifle shooters. Again, there’s no shortage of places to shoot. Most sizable cities have several indoor ranges for handguns. Out on the prairies, some ranches have well-maintained rifle ranges to 1,500 yards or beyond for those who want to try hitting targets that look a full zip code away!

Archers can enjoy indoor ranges or any of dozens of 3D courses where life-sized foam animal targets are placed in prime habitat. Many are so realistic they seem like a real-deal hunt, minus the fresh venison steaks for dinner, of course.

Remember Kansas state parks offer 11 archery and three firearm ranges. All firearms ranges are modern, well maintained, staffed, and designed with a “safety first” theme.
