Ben Avery Clay Target Center


The Ben Avery Clay Target Center is a professionally managed public shotgun-shooting facility in north Phoenix offering games such as trap, skeet, sporting clays, and more. Fun for the whole family! It is also the check-in point for the Ben Avery outdoor archery ranges.

Shooters of all ages and abilities are welcome. New shooters will find rental shotguns and a courteous staff eager to offer informal coaching. Experts and competitive shooters will find top-notch challenges to match their skills in traditional games as well as advanced games like international skeet and Olympic (bunker) trap. The center hosts many well-known registered shoots and is a favorite venue for some of the world’s most accomplished shooters.

The Ben Avery Clay Target Center is located on the grounds of the 1,650-acre Ben Avery Shooting Facility and is owned by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission and operated by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Surrounded by scenic Sonoran desert landscape, it is easily accessed off Carefree Highway about 1.5 miles west of Interstate 17, just a short drive from popular tourist destinations like Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix.
