Shooting School

Sporting Clays

We have a unique Olympic standard sporting clay range to test even the most experienced guns.  The Poronui Sporting Clays Course is built in a wooded valley with multiple shooting stations and a fully automated twenty trap layout. A programmed remote release system allows for twenty singles, pairs and flurries to be released at each shooting station - giving a huge variety of targets. The course has been designed for skeet, to simulate either upland game birds or waterfowl.

Sporting Clays at Poronui

Field Archery

The Poronui field archery course is situated in native beech forest and contains 3-D animal targets all set at different distances. Part of the skill of field archery is learning to judge distance accurately. Very much like golf, a group of four archers can do a circuit of the different animal targets, collect a score at each one and can complete a round in about two hours.

Field Archery is for everyone, ladies, men and juniors, no matter what your body shape or level of fitness. It's great fun and a sport you can enjoy all year round, as the bush is cool in summer and sheltered in winter. Poronui provides expert tuition and all equipment.


Field Target Shooting

The Poronui field target shooting course contains Nockover second shot re-setting field targets. The .177 calibre single shot air rifles are ideal for both the novice and experienced shooter.

We also provide tuition, guns and ammunition for those who want a casual shot after fishing, or are keen to learn to shoot a shotgun, rifle or draw a bow.
