Trap & Skeet
Trap shooting is a sport that is based on shooting small disks launched into the air. These disks are of various sizes. The disks are shaped somewhat like Frisbees and fly in a nice arc through the air.
The trap and skeet range is located south of the flight line on Raptor Road, building 2318. The range is open Sunday from noon until dark. The range enforces a strict 2-hour rule; if no shooters arrive within the first two hours of opening, the range will close. The range manager can be reached at (575) 784-2819.
The range is available for custom shoots or special events including a squadron challenge or fun shoot. Events can be scheduled for any day of the week. Custom shoots must be confirmed and reserved with Outdoor Recreation ten business days prior to event date. A $75 reservation fee is required to secure the event. To schedule these events contact Outdoor Recreation.
Trap and skeet rounds are sold at the range. Regular rounds are $7.50, 12 gauge ammo is $10 per box and 20 gage ammo is $10 per box. Shotguns, 12 gauge and 20 gauge, are available for rent for use on the range. The rental fee is $10 per shotgun.
A number of boats are available for rental at Outdoor Recreation including John boats, ski boats, pontoon boats, and fishing boats. Also available are canoes and kayaks. Water tubes, boards, water skis and life jackets can be rented as well. There are separate fees depending on the length of your rental--daily, weekly, weekend or holiday rates apply. Reservations for boats can be made 90 days in advance for active duty members and 60 days for retirees or civilian employees. Boat renters must complete a certified boaters safety course prior to making the reservation or release of the rental.
