Clay Bird Shooting
Whether you are an experienced shooter or it’s your first time handling a gun, this activity challenges brain to eye co-ordination and really gets you buzzing.
Using live ammunition and real shotguns, our automatic clay bird throwers shoot clays off in a variety of directions. Our experienced facilitators run a friendly competition between teams to discover who really is the best shot.
Held on a farm in Ngaruawahia, Clay Bird Shooting is fantastic for corporate groups, stag & hen groups or birthday’s and it’s fully relocatable meaning we can bring the fun to your preferred location.
Please note offsite events incur a travel and set up fee and venue suitability will be confirmed by Hinterland management.
