NE Ohio shooting clubs/ranges

Discussion in 'The Lodge' started by beadhead, Nov 1, 2008.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm interested in getting back into hunting and shooting, especially shotgunning. I inherited a 12 gauge a few years ago, and I'd like to try it out. I have reserve military experience, and I did some small-game hunting as a kid, so I'm familiar with firearms and safety practices.

    Here's my question: can anyone recommend a good club or range within, say, 75 miles of the Lakewood area? Thanks in advance.

    PS: I do a lot of fly-fishing, so if anyone wants to swap knowledge, I'm up for it.

    All the Best,

    i too am a member of vienna fish and game. great club. very good pistol and rifle ranges, indoor pistol thur the winter, walk thru the woods archery course(with elevated platforms), 4 trap houses, a stocked trout pond, foot distances marked archery range, wild game dinners, lots of hunting acreage, theres more too. i just got my news letter and they are accepting new members. if you want contact info pm me. you MUST put in 15 work hours your first year and 10 a year after that. its well worth it because you do get to meet a lot of people. unfortunely my walleye addiction has gotten in the way of my time at the range this year.
