  • Glow-in-the-dark skeet shooting

If you are looking for what might be the most Texas thing you can do in the DFW area, glow-in-the-dark skeet shooting has to be up there. There is a new venue in Waxahachie just a few miles south of Dallas where you can do just that.

This was the first time I had seen this event. It is so visually exciting, that your friends will be amazed at the photos and videos you could create there. You can have fun at The Porch only skeet shooting or relax in the rural setting with other Texas-style adventures like axe throwing and cornhole.

They also have oversized Jenga and Connect 4-type games, so there is something for everyone to enjoy. I've seen all that before, and it's the glow-in-the-dark skeet shooting that really caught my attention.

All-Inclusive Outdoor Event Venue In Waxahachie, Texas Has Something Different

As someone who has seen it all, glow skeet (I just made up that new term) has really captured my imagination. I searched online to find the first instance of this becoming a reality, and I found a YouTube video from 2009 by wildfireammunition.

It only has about 10K views, but I wonder if the owners of The Porch were some of those. They use blacklights to make the effect of a glowing skeet, much like the video from 2009.

It's not the most original idea ever, but I think we are pretty close to the start of something big. That old video and this venue are all that come up in searches.

If you like skeet shooting, this is definitely a Texas bucket list venue. It seems a lot more fun than Glow Bowl at the local lanes. You can even bring your own guns and shells.
