At Meemo’s, we aim to provide the highest quality shooting experience with our world-class sporting clay facilities. Our course offers 13 newly remodeled sporting clay stations with three traps per station, which can be shot as a 100-target round. Meemo’s evokes the thrill of hunting as clay targets are positioned over natural cover and water—simulating the excitement of wild game bird flight. The course is incorporated in over 1,000 acres of prime hunting preserve which also supports the best of upland field and woodland hunting. A fleet of golf carts is available for daily rental and adds comfort to your sporting clay experience.
Skeet is HARD to learn but EASY to master. Meemo’s Farm offers a skeet range configured for American Skeet. One round of skeet is comprised of taking 25 shots distributed between 8 stations. In Skeet, clay targets are thrown from two stationary machines located in “high house” (left side) and “low house” (right side) of the field. A round of skeet consists of 25 targets shot from 8 different stations around a semicircle. The difficulty comes with the ever changing angles of the target flight path which changes from station to station. The shooter shoots a series of shot sequences ranging from two to four targets.
Trap shooting is EASY to learn but HARD to master.
In Trap, clay targets are thrown by a machine located at approximately ground level and covered by a “trap house” at the center of the field. The trap machine oscillates side to side so the targets are constantly changing and should appear random and unpredictable. A round of trap consists of 25 shots, with groups of five shots being taken from five shooting positions. There is a maximum of five people shooting per round which is called a squad. Each shooter on the squad shoots five shots from each of the five shooting positions. The shooters take turns shooting such that the first shooter will shoot one shot, then the second shooter takes their shot, etc. until all five shooters have shot 5 shots from a given shooting position. The shooters then rotate to the next shooting position and repeat the process.
A variant of standard trap is Wobble or Wobble Trap. The main difference is a more extreme target flight path than in standard trap shooting. The trap oscillates up and down as well as side to side. Wobble trap is a good warm up for Sporting clays. There are 25 targets in a “Round of Wobble Trap.”
5-Stand is a miniature version of the popular game of Sporting Clays made to fit onto a Skeet Field.
Fire off 20 rounds at exploding targets from a genuine iconic piece of iconic American history.
Step back in time to the Civil War era to shoot the Gatling gun, one of the best-known early rapid-fire weapons and a forerunner of the modern machine gun. Invented by Richard Gatling, it is known for its use by Union forces during the American Civil War in the 1860s, which was the first time it was employed in combat. Later it was used in the Bushing War, the Anglo-Zulu War and still later in the assault on San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War.
The Gatling gun’s operation centered on a cyclic multi-barrel design, which facilitated cooling and synchronized the firing/reloading sequence. Each barrel fired a single shot when it reached a certain point in the cycle, after which it ejected the spent cartridge, loaded a new round, and in the process, allowed the barrel to cool somewhat. This configuration allowed higher rates of fire without the barrel overheating.
