What we are:

We are a group of guys and gals that really enjoy Trapshooting.

Our club has five regulation trap fields equipped with Pat Traps and voice release.
Field 4 is normally set for WOBBLE.
Field 5 is normally set for DOUBLES.

We also use Canterbury Voice Release systems on all five fields.

We try our best to keep our equipment operating the best we can.
If something goes wrong, it usually gets fixed quickly.

We have beautiful grounds suitable for picnics.
Our clubhouse is small, but serves its purpose well.

The McHenry Sportsmen's Club is a "shooters club".
We are there to shoot, and many of our members are getting quite good at it.

We welcome new shooters, and are willing to help them along.

We offer discounted youth shooting passes to the Sons and Daughters of members (18 years or younger).

We offer programs for small or large groups.
We normally run four ATA Registered Shoots per year.
We enjoy leagues and participate in the annual Winter Jackrabbit Shoot with other clubs.
We have a club championship, a family picnic and a fall Turkey Shoot.
We have other events, (as members think them up).

We shoot a lot of singles, doubles, handicap and "WOBBLE" trap.
Our Wobble field is very challenging and a lot of fun to shoot on.
We even shoot Wobble doubles on this field, which is even more challenging.

How to get there:

You need to get to the intersection of Illionos ROUTE 120 and CHAPEL HILL Road.
On that intersection, you will see a Shell station and a "cute" candy store.


If you are coming from I-94 (Tri-State Tollway), exit WEST on Illinois ROUTE 120.
This will put you some distance EAST of Illinois ROUTE 12 and you will need to get there.
Due to heavy traffic, it could actually take you about 45 minutes to get from the I-94 exit to the club.

Warning: There are speed traps along ROUTE 120, so try to obey the posted limits.

If you are EAST of CHAPEL HILL Road.

(CHAPEL HILL Road is a couple of miles EAST of the Fox River and the town of McHenry):
  • go EAST on ROUTE 120 until you come to CHAPEL HILL Road.

Once you are on CHAPEL HILL Road:
  • go NORTH until you get to BAY Road.
  • Turn RIGHT on BAY Road (about 2 1/4 miles).
    If you get to the river, you are too far.
  • go "EAST" on BAY Road until you get to WEINGART Road (about 1/2 mile).
    (Weingart is the first "real street" you can turn left on).
