Sporting Clay Shoots
Sporting clays allows participants to experience various shotgun-shooting scenarios that simulate small game hunting in its natural environment. Many enjoy the sport for its variability and active outdoor setting. Station configurations change for each event to continually challenge the shooters. Variability also limits environmental impact on the course, helping to ensure optimal conditions throughout the seasons. Naturally, safety is paramount and proper hearing and eye protection are required while on the course.
Our typical course consists of eight to 10 stations. Varying numbers of clay singles or pairs are thrown at differing angles and speeds from each station. Sporting clays replicates many hunting conditions, from birds flushing to ducks landing to darting ground animals. At most stations, targets vary in size, challenging the shooter to gauge the target’s distance and speed. Competitors shoot roughly 50 targets in each outing.
