Our Range Mission Statement

  The purpose of the Vanzant Clay Pigeon Farm is to promote the shotgun shooting sport by providing invited guests a private, professional, safe, friendly, and comfortable place to enjoy recreational shotgunning. We were the first in the area and have been here for over 20 years.

VCPF is located on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest in the beautiful Ozarks of south central Missouri, just 30 minutes south of downtown Mountain Grove.

VCPF is privately owned, maintained, and operated semi annually by American Veterans, in conjunction with Professional Shooting Instruction of Va..

It provides:

        NRA certified basic shotgun instruction.

2 American skeet fields,

1 ATA trap field,

5 free camper trailer campsites,

and a climate controlled clubhouse/classroom.

A wobble trap course is scheduled for the future.


Range Operation

Is Semi-Annually, April & October

- By Appointment Only -

Open season reservations call:


           Off season call:        





Practice rounds are a suggested 5.00 a game. We are the best deal in the area.


There are a lot of great places to stay while you visit. Many people stay for more than just one day of shooting. With so many things to do like canoeing, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, and other great outdoor activities you will find it hard to leave Douglas County. Keep in mind, the VCPF is very secluded and all accommodations or attractions require some lengthy travel time.

If you have a camper, feel free to park on the grounds for free. Come self contained since we lack hookups. Otherwise, The closest hotel to the range is the Rockbridge Trout Ranch 30 minutes away or in downtown Mountain Grove.
