Hunting & Shooting

DSC_0253Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay Pigeon Shooting garners its roots from the United Kingdom, and remains a popular pastime to this day. Clay pigeon shooting, also know as clay target shooting, involves firing at a flying clay target. Clay sporting is the most common discipline, and involves targets being thrown in a variety of angles, speeds, trajectories, distances and elevations. It tests the skill and response time of the shooter, and most closely resembles the shooting of live quarry.

Just a short distance from the Inn on Bath Creek lies Hunter’s Pointe Sporting Clays Club. Established as a premier sporting clays range over 20 years ago, Hunter’s Pointe is an ideal shooting range for experienced sportsmen and novice enthusiasts. It offers shotgun and pistol shooting, alongside a variety of clay target shooting options.



Beaufort County provides popular hunting grounds, as the region is home to a variety of small game animals, waterfowl and white tailed deer. Larger mammals such as black bears can also be found in the region.

The Pamlico Sound is one of the more famous areas for open water duck hunting. Home to many species of waterfowl, some of the more frequently spotted species include sea ducks, puddle ducks, geese and mallards. Lake Mattamuskeet is another popular open water hunting ground, where the large populations of waterfowl can provide good shooting opportunities.
