The game of Five Stand Sporting Clays is often called golf with a shotgun and is designed to more closely simulate actual hunting conditions. There are five “stands” or stations to shoot from. There are 8 traps in the field that throw targets (clays) at different angles and trajectories. Participants shoot in turn at 5 different targets at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown at each stand. There is a menu card at each station that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets.
I have never handled a gun. Is this something I can do?
Absolutely! We love new shooters! We will teach you the skills you need to safely handle a firearm and start breaking clays!
What does a “round” consist of?
A round is one box of 25 shells (bullets). There are 8 different targets that each fly in a different direction. Each shooter will be trained on the best way to shoot each target.
How long will it take?
Well that depends… Brand new shooters will take 1.5-2 hours whereas very experienced shooters can shoot a round in 30-45 minutes.
