The Chatuge Gun Club Range is located in Towns County Georgia approximately 3 miles from the summit of Brasstown Bald Mountain, the highest point in Georgia; 4,784 feet above sea level. It is located on United States Forest Service property and operates under a Special Use Permit since 1981. Click here to see pictures of the early days of the range. This Special Use Permit with Chatuge Gun Club allows public use the second Sunday of each month from 1:30-3:30pm. (Weather permitting, may be canceled in cold weather). Members are welcome on open range day. Non club members need to be at the range by 1 pm for a short orientation on open range day. For more information, call a club officer, Monday - Friday from 10am until 4pm or contact Carol Rosenqvist by text at 706-781-4392.
The range affords a 9-position, covered, concrete firing line with shooting benches. Firearms may be fired at distances varying from 7 yards to 100 yards by moving the target holders. Shooters need to plan to provide their own targets and staplers. No exploding, tracer or any other incendiary ammunition or target or situations that might cause a fire are allowed. The range facilities are available for use by Chatuge Gun Club members during daylight hours and is accessible by a key card issued upon joining the club by filling out the new member application; attending new member orientation; paying the dues as described in the "Dues Policies" on this website; and signing an agreement with the club to understand and obey ALL range rules as set forth by the Chatuge Gun Club.
These matches vary and attempt to provide a form of entertainment to satisfy almost all types of firearms from muzzle loaders to semi-auto loaders.
Trap is shot on Wednesday mornings. Contact: Jerome Schreiber at 828.361.0684
