Sporting Clay Shooting
February 4, 2020
I’m in a photo slump, so I’m kind of scraping the bottom of the archive barrel. Obviously, I didn’t take this photo, Bill did. This is me shooting in a sporting clays tournament. Our team of 5 (typical team size) came in 2nd in the tourney. Bill and I both enjoy shooting sporting clays. For those who are not familiar with the sport, it has sometimes been described as “golf with a shotgun” and is a form of clay pigeon shooting. It is a very challenging sport. A course is typically 100 shots with several shots at one station, then you move on to the next station. On average, it takes 3-4 hours to complete a course with a team of 5. At each station, the clay is thrown to resemble actual field shooting of quail, ducks, pigeons, high flying and fast-moving birds, pheasants and even rabbits. Rabbits are my favorite, I always score 100% on them, but many people find them to be difficult because the clay is thrown on it’s edge and it rolls very fast across the ground and is subject to the terrain which can make it jump, curve and take wild bounces.
