Skeet Field

The O’Neill Rod and Gun Club recently completed work on their new skeet field. If you have driven past the club this spring, you may have noticed the two new structures going up on the club grounds. Skeet is an Olympic shotgun sport where competitors shoot clay targets from eight different stations arranged in a semi-circle. The clay targets are thrown from a high house and a low house. The targets are usually shot at distances under 25 yards, making skeet a great sport for young and old alike. All gauges of shotguns compete in skeet, from 12 gauge all they way down to the .410.

The Gun Club would like to thank everyone that helped make the great upgrade to the facility possible: the Holt County Visitors Committee, High Plains Friends of the NRA, Emme Sand and Gravel. Musil Concrete and Finishing, Cole Redi Mix, CS Construction, Sundown Electric, Tim Gray, Jim Rabe, Jim Gokie, John Schindler and many O’Neill Gun Club members. Without your time, your talent and your equipment, this project would have never happened.

The O’Neill Rod and Gun Club is located half a mile west of the O’Neill Golf Club at the west end of Hynes St. The club is open to the public every Monday night, weather permitting, from 6 p.m. until dark throughout the summer. This is a shotgun only facility that offers trap, double trap, wobble trap and now skeet. Leagues are forming now for trap and skeet. The club is willing to host private groups or company outings, just give Dan Krugman a call at 402-340-0793.
