The Grafton County Fish and Game Association, a non-profit, membership organization, has served the local community as a venue for the shooting sports since 1925. Our facilities include a clubhouse, a 50' indoor small bore range, a 50 yard pistol range, a 100 yard rifle range, archery range, skeet field, 2 trap fields, and a 5-stand course.

In addition to providing a safe, convenient location for members to shoot, we also host a variety of events that are open to the general public. Current information on event and league offerings are detailed on this website.

Meetings are held monthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm in the clubhouse. The May meeting is the annual meeting when officers and directors are elected.

The Cruelest Month

Shooting 5-Stand at GCFGA

Bob Sohrweide's article about shooting 5-stand in the winter is published in "Sporting Classics Daily"

"For a clay-pigeon shooter in New Hampshire, January is the cruelest month. It is cold, snowy, and icy. Windy, too—a wind that cuts into the shooter, blows snow or ice into his face, and also plays havoc with the clay pigeon. A strong puff sails the clay just about when the finger hits the trigger

The five-stand/skeet course at Grafton County Fish and Game, where I shoot, had been plowed and graveled many times. At least one thaw had spread water (melted snow) over the course; the water had then turned back into ice. Fine black gravel helped the shooters’ footing, but the wise New Hampshire shooter wears metal on the bottom of his boots—Yaktrax, spikes, or the equivalent. That gives everyone a sense of confidence. Even so, we move slowly and cautiously.

The Grafton County five-stand course opens at 11 a.m. on Saturdays, weather permitting. This is New Hampshire, the land of plows, salt, grit, trucks, four-wheel drives, long underwear, pac boots, gloves, and warm hats, so it takes a blizzard or zero degree weather to stop the targets from being thrown. We often shoot bundled up at clays dancing in the icy wind, but sometimes, even in the cruelest month, there’s a windless, sunny day. A shooter really burns through ammo then. This was one of those days."
