I believe that history and heritage are valuable, and that gentility among people is still the "currency of the realm." I believe in the solid principles that have been passed down from generation to generation; that there is value in a man's word, that there is goodness in the hearts of all men, and that a knowledge of the woods, fields, lakes, rivers, oceans, and the creatures and crops we find there, makes us better stewards of God's amazing earth!

It's no secret that I love shooting...especially sporting clays and trap.  It's also no secret that I really enjoy the finer destinations.  Sure I'll settle for an old corn field with a spring loaded hand-thrower but I do appreciate the amenities at some of the top shooting clubs around the nation...therefore I've decided to begin featuring some of my favorites.  First up is The Fork Farm & Stables.

The Fork is located in Norwood, NC and is an absolutely beautiful property.  With not only sporting clays but upland bird and duck hunting (in season) this is a shotgunners paradise.

Here is some information from their shooting page on their website:

Sporting Clay shooting is a timeless sport perfect for friends and family and an excellent option for business entertaining. The Fork offers:
  • 14-station Large-Gauge Course (12 and 16 gauge)
  • 7-station Small-Gauge Course (20, 28 and 410 gauge)
  • Covered Five-Stand
  • 4-person, Twelve-trap, 65-foot Tower/Flurry
The courses, designed by British designer John Higgins, are set on 1,600 wooded acres at the confluence of the Pee Dee and Rocky Rivers. The country is rolling piedmont, which affords challenging hillside shooting with shots both above and below the shooter. With minimal coaching, even someone who has never shot before can participate in a round of Sporting Clays while also enjoying the pristine natural surroundings of The Fork.
Sporting clay events and competitions of all levels are staged throughout the year. Ladies and young shooters are encouraged to participate.
