Sporting Clays

What is Sporting Clays?

With its roots coming from England, sporting clays is a shotgun shooting game in which clay pigeons are presented to the shooter in ways that mirror the flight pattern of game birds, or occasionally rabbits, in their natural habitats. The shooting grounds are laid out in stations with each station representing one type of bird or a combination of game; a rabbit and a grouse, for example.

With variations in trap position, trap speed, shooting position, and flight paths of different types of clay pigeons, targets can come through the trees, from under your feet, straight down, over your head, quartering, going away, left to right, right to left, and in any path a real bird might choose. The key words are unpredictable, variable, and sometimes bordering on impossible.
