Shotgun Instruction

Beech Paradise Ranch offers Clay Target, Paper Target, and Steel Target shooting for shotguns. Instruction in hunting, target shooting, competition shooting, and defensive shooting available in 1-on-1 sessions.

At Beech Paradise Ranch, we welcome youth students who are interested in shooting. However, we require that parents or guardians accompany all students under the age of 15 at all times. This is to ensure everyone’s safety and provide a comfortable environment for learning. Under the age of 15 we evaluate each youth shooter on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is to create a safe and enjoyable experience for all our visitors, regardless of age.

If you’re interested in scheduling a training session, please don’t hesitate to contact us through the contact page.
