 Target Shooting

 Local Crafts



In Elliston for the Puffin Festival, Sealers Memorial or even our root cellars? While visiting be sure to take advantage of one of our lesser knows experiences and go target shooting with real guns! We even have our own First World War trench lined with sandbags you can shoot from (see package #7).

Recreational target shooting has become a popular activity on the northern tip of the Bonavista Peninsula during recent years and is actually far safer than many sports. If you are going to be in the Elliston area it is certainly something different to try.

Everything is provided on site and no previous shooting experience is necessary (or licenses required) for some shooting fun under the watchful eye of a certified range safety officer. Listed below are a variety of available packages to choose from.

It is recommended you book your package(s) in advance and if so we can accept payment by Email Money Transfer (EMT). Just mention you wish to pay by EMT in the message you send using the form at the end of the package offerings and we will contact you to confirm. Otherwise, please note only cash is accepted on site.. See below for package details and contact information.
