The Durham County Wildlife Club is located off Hopson Road in the heart of the Research Triangle Park, within minutes of Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and convenient to the Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill areas of central North Carolina.
Primarily a shotgun oriented facility offering trap, skeet, sporting clays, and a 48 station Archery complex consisting of a practice and three 14 station courses. The club does include a pistol range, with target positions out to 50 meters. On the pistol/rifle range, only rimfire rifles of .22 and .17 caliber are permitted. Pistols firing classical pistol cartridges (straight walled) may be used (i.e. 22, 380, 32, 9mm, 38, 45, etc) . Not allowed are pistols firing high-intensity bottle-neck type rifle cartridges or ANY center fire rifle. Black powder pistols are allowed, but not BP rifles.)
More than just a place to shoot, the club has 96 acres of land, which includes an eleven acre lake complete with picnic tables and a large clubhouse. These are in addition to the well manicured shooting facilities. Forty acres of the property remain wooded, offering a serene respite from the pressures of life in the Triangle.
