Over the last few weeks, I have been chatting with you about trying sporting clays here in the Hudson Valley. Well, I finally got the opportunity to do it. I even have video proof.

Not ever having fired a rifle or long gun before, I knew that I would need a lesson and that I couldn't just jump into it without having a clear understanding of exactly what I was doing it, how to do it and of course, how to be safe doing it.

After talking with a few people, I headed out to Mid Hudson Sporting Clays, N Ohioville Road in New Paltz. It was there that I met with one of the owners Steve, who you could tell had been teaching the sport to newcomers like myself, and might I add, very patiently explaining how to make the most of my afternoon, by actually hitting targets.

I even have video evidence that I hit some of the targets. Want to learn more about clay shooting? You can contact Mid Hudson Sporting Clays directly at 845-255-7460 or visit their booth at the North East Outdoor Sports show and ask how you can get 25 clays for free.
