    Auckland clay shooting

    Hi guys, me and the missus are new here and looking to do some clay shooting in Auckland. Do you have any recommendations on what clay clubs are good here? We think that NZDA is a sure fire one for shooting and hunting but not so sure about the clays. Thanks very much for any advice that you can give.

    No luck at all. They completely ignored me. Maybe I'm not rich / posh enough.

    Look further afield for the likes of Waiuku Pukekohe type areas. I'd imagine they might be a bit more receptive. Further to drive maybe but could be worth it. My cousin shoots in the college team out there n think there's a Waiuku club member coaching them. Could be wrong.

    I shoot at waitemata and auckland metropolitain (puke).
    Auckland met has the welcome all attitude that waitemata does not have. I have had coaching at auckland met by some very qualified people.

    Waitemata has practice days on saturday, auckland met only has comps on sundays.

    I've shit at the met before. Nearly won a Stoeger 2000 at the 2015 gun city duck hunters shoot there last year. I'm just lazy and it's a fair drive!

    Shot at Auckland Met 35 odd years ago, after returning from Aus. Great club - used to take daughter and son out as well.
    They were entertained by the ladies while I shot a very average C grade.
    Not sure if they're in the same place, but well worth the trip @Jock.
    Cheers
