How The Games Are Played

Skeet


Regular skeet is shot in a "round" of 25 shots at targets thrown from a high house and a low house, with the shooter rotating from station to station around the semicircular skeet field.  Since pairs are shot at several stations, a shotgun that loads two shells is required. 

The 8 stations on a skeet field are shot as follows:

Station 1:  Shoot a high house single, followed by a low house single.  This is followed by a pair of doubles, shooting at the high house target first.

Station 2:  Same targets and procedures as Station 1

Station 3:  Shoot only singles, high house first

Station 4:  Shoot only singles, high house first

Station 5:  Shoot only singles, high house first

Station 6:  Shoot a high house single, followed by a low house single.  This is followed by a pair of doubles, shooting the low house target first

Station 7:  Same targets and procedure as Station 6

Station 8:  Shoot a high house single, then shoot a low house single

Upon the shooter's first missed target, an "option" shot is taken at the target missed.  If no targets are missed during the round, the option is taken as an additional low house target on station 8.
Sporting Clays


Sporting clays is a shooting sport designed to simulate real hunting conditions.

Targets are shot at 10 stations, with each station replicating shots which may be encountered in hunting a variety of fur and fowl.  Stations such as "springing teal", "flushing pheasant" and "running rabbits" create challenges similar to actual hunting conditions. 

Since pairs are shot at many stations, a shotgun that will load two shells is required.
Trap


Trap is shot at targets thrown out and away from the shooter, from a trap house situated low and at the front-center of the field.  In a round of trap, shooters take five shots at each of five stations, rotating to all five stations during a round. 

Trap is shot as a singles game or doubles game, and in advanced shooting, employs a handicap system which situates shooters at varying distances from the trap house. 

Only one shell is loaded at a time, unless shooting doubles trap.
