A fun and exciting opportunity to practice your shooting skills amidst a lovely Kaua‘i atmosphere on undeveloped agricultural land, yet conveniently tucked in the heart of Līhu‘e, is available at Kaua‘i Eco Sporting Clays. The business offers two five-stand sporting clay courses with eight targets on each course that simulate actual hunting conditions, including random angles and trajectories. Beginners and experienced shooters ages 12 and up are welcome to participate and Ben Ellsworth, owner and operator of the local hot spot who is a professional outdoorsman and former Utah resident, has a 100 percent safety record.

The game of Five Stand Sporting Clays is often called golf with a shotgun and is designed to more closely simulate actual hunting conditions. There are five “stands” or stations to shoot from. There are 8 traps in the field that throw targets (clays) at different angles and trajectories. Participants shoot in turn at 5 different targets at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown at each stand. There is a menu card at each station that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets.

The 10 shooting stations are fully covered and, therefore, are available rain or shine and also accommodate a variety of target practice options. Sporting Clays Intro lessons, for example, includes complete and comprehensive hands-on instruction that teaches attendees everything from how to hold a gun to how to load it. Those who have never held a gun before learn directly from Ellsworth who has decades of experience and has taught around 15,000 to 16,000 people how to safely shoot. By the end of the 1.5- to 2-hour lessons, newbies are already breaking targets and feeling comfortable. Experienced shooters who already have extensive knowledge of the sport can take part in several different packages in groups of up to five.

Private Party Packages

One of the highlighted opportunities at Kaua‘i Eco Sporting Clays are some of the private party packages, such as Night Sporting Clays Intro lessons and Bust ‘Em in the Dark! Night Shooting Adventure. Since the island gets sleepy at night, this is a great evening activity to partake in. The former offering is for beginners and the latter for experienced shooters. Each of the activities begin at sunset and last until 10 p.m. It’s like a night-time party complete with a fire pit where s’mores are cooked and laughter and stories are shared. Larger parties, as well as corporate events, can also be accommodated for daytime or nighttime shooting adventures.

Unique Bonding Activity

Moreover, the locally owned business is the only place on the Garden Isle where you can legally shoot a gun when you’re not hunting and has top-of-the-line gun rentals and high-quality equipment. Touted as a unique bonding activity that allows people to blow off steam in a tropical environment, Kaua‘i Eco Sporting Clays offers an exhilarating experience for outdoor enthusiasts.
