For novice shooters to master marksmen!

Many companies in the shooting, hunting and outdoors industry support the Ducks Unlimited Shooting Program. These companies generously donate products and make this program successful. Thank you to all of our major program sponsors, Fiocchi Ammunition, Browning, Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa, Winchester Ammunition and Remington for all you do for the Ducks!

Our program has two components:

1) The large multiple-day NSCA-registered Continental Shoot event held in Las Vegas, Nevada

2) The smaller, local one-day DU Camo Class shooting events held throughout the U.S.


Greetings Fellow Shooters!

YES. Yes it does rain in the desert and can at the most inopportune times. Friday and Saturday were interesting days as carts shrouded in blue tarps and or saran wrap, navigated the muddy trails of the Clark County Shooting Complex. Despite that, we had a very successful shoot with a minimum of obstacles. 

CONGRATULATIONS go out to our HOA CHAMPION: BEN COURTEMARCHE of CA for his winning score of 198 in the 200 bird Main Event. 

Final registration numbers show that we had 456 entries in the Main Event and 474 entries in the sub-gauge rounds, 265 entries in 5-Stand rounds and in our newest offering, 251 entries in Super Sporting for a total of 1090 individual event entries! That far eclipses any previous year in any of the venues we have used. We had 35 States & 2 countries represented! 

Thank you to our title Sponsors: BROWNING ARMS, FIOCCHI, and of course the ALIANTE Hotel + Casino + Spa! We also Thank all of our other supporters that were listed in the Shooter's Program, and whose banners hung throughout the course over the entire the weekend. Without the support of these many generous people, we could not have had such a successful time. Over 300 Pictures have been posted on our 2017 Ducks Unlimited Continental Shoot Facebook page. 

A special thank you is extended to the entire Committee without whose hard work and dedication, this would not have been possible. We have people on our committee from: FL, DE, CO, TX, CA,WA, MT, AK, ID and of course NV. 

I am also pleased to announce that the dates for the 2018 Shoot are: 21-25 February and that the room block at the Aliante is currently open. The rate code is DUCKS18. Early reservations are advised as the rooms will go very quickly. Don't get left out!

We look forward to seeing all next year and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us at

The Camo Class program consists of 30 one-day events geared toward the occasional target shooter to participate in a less competitive environment. We encourage you to bring your favorite hunting shotgun and prepare to have a great time and win some great prizes! Currently scheduled Camo Class events »
