Georgia-Carolina Council Open Shoots

We offer quarterly Open Shoots for Scouts who want to shoot for fun to keep up their marksmanship skills. We offer archery, rifle, shotgun, and tomahawk depending on attendance. This is an opportunity for scouts who have earned their merit badges and for those who want some exposure before taking their merit badges. All are welcome. Scouts wanting to stay for the entire session must bring their own lunch. Open Shoots run from 09:00 am to 3:00 pm.

We offer paper, steel, spinning and other challenging targets at the rifle range.

The Shotgun Field gives scouts the opportunity to experience shooting a shotgun at a moving target and to possible earn a “Break 8” patch.

Archery offers scouts the opportunity to shoot both stationary and 3-D targets.

Tomahawk offers the opportunity to throw “hawks” at target rounds mounted on a stationary wall.

All Shooting Sports events are conducted by certified instructors and also Range Safety Officers on the firearms ranges.
