RIVER HILLS SPORTING CLAYS

...is a shotgun sports facility specializing in various types of clay bird games.  We are on the bluffs high above the Missouri River near Boonville, Missouri.  We have a variety of rolling meadows, deep wooded valleys, and most everything in between.

Sporting Clays

Sporting Clays is our specialty.  There are two courses. One is the main course, which has over 60 shooting sites to place the 12-16-station course.  This includes a 58 foot multi-floor tower that has traps on many different levels.  There is also a 36 foot and a 30-foot mobile tower along with two 12 foot mobile towers.  There is also a mobile elevated shooting deck that is moved around to give you a different view of the target.  We have several permanent elevated stands that are looking over the river bluff, over a large wide valley, and one over a pond.  These elevated stands give many opportunities for a variety of target presentations even before we add the variety of target that can be thrown when we add a mobile tower.  
    The second course is a seven station course located just outside of the club house.  This  course is usually set up with not as difficult shots and is good for people who are just starting to shoot or for shooters who do not have enough time to shoot the main course.    

The course has all automatic traps which includes; midis, minis, rabbits and chondels. Since it is all automatic you and your shooting buddy can throw for each other and go as fast or as slow as you want without waiting for a trapper.

            Shooting Sporting Clays can be a family event.  The course is a well-kept park like area.  The paths are well marked so people do not stray into danger.  Since the course is automatic, children of the shooter can enjoy participating by pushing the buttons.  Frequently we are asked if we have an age limit or when can a child start shooting.  We do not have an age limit, but children need to be supervised.  We do give the guidelines for shooting as being around 10 years of age, or 100 pounds, or a real desire to shoot. 

            Since Sporting Clays was developed to simulate hunting situations quail, pheasant, duck and dove hunters come out to stay tuned up for the hunting seasons. 

5-Stand

The 5-Stand is located in the woods on a 70-foot deck.  There is a 20-foot tower located behind the deck.  The deck overlooks a ravine that along with the tower some interesting target presentations can be thrown.  The 5-Stand is computerized which sets the menu and keeps score.  The computer can easily be changed to throw singles or report targets for the novice or true pairs for the more advanced shooter.   For the adventurous we can throw a flurry where it is up to the shooter to load fast enough to keep up with the targets.  The 5-Stand is lit so you can shoot after dark. 

Skeet/Trap

 The skeet-trap field is official size with full concrete paths.  It is also lit for night shooting. 

 Youth Shooting 

River Hills is pleased to be able to advance youth shooting in and around Cooper County.  We give discounts to the Boonville FFA, the Cooper County  4-H and other youth organizations on request.
