    I heard there may be a place to shoot shotguns at EE Wilson but I've never been out there. Has anyone else heard about this or been out there?

    Thanks.

    Yep a skeet shoot area on the west side of the road but not sure if it is open all the time to general public or what.

    Went by yesterday and it is open to all but you have to use non toxic ammo.

    Yes, what he said.

    * it's open to the public
    * shotguns only -- no rifles, no handguns
    * steel shot only -- no lead
    * clay targets only
    * bring your own clay thrower

    ODFW can give you more details. Have fun!

    Our club just ran 442 kids through an introduction to shotguns seminar there. The state provided the ammo for the event. 1500fps steel #7.5 shot. The guys said it nearly knocked down a few of the smaller kids. LOL

    Hey, it looks like someone posted a handful of short videos of shooting at EE Wilson a couple of months ago on YouTube.com.

    Here's one of the videos:

    [video=youtube;ajkGM7oxrhU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajkGM7oxrhU]Admiral Trap Shooting II at E.E. Wilson - YouTube[/video]

    And links to the rest of the videos:

    "EE Wilson" + Trap - YouTube

    The videos were posted by someone with the YouTube handle "ManMakesFire". Perhaps it's somebody from here?
