Sporting Clays allows the hunter to warm up before season, the novice shooter to hone his/her abilities, and the competitive shooter to practice and compete. Shooters normally walk or ride along a designated path from station to station in open fields and hardwood gaps. Each station uses clay targets to simulate any animal such as dove, duck, woodcock, or even a bouncing rabbit. A typical round normally consists of 50 or 100 targets spread over 12 shooting stations. Target presentations not only vary from club to club, but often week to week.
Skeet utilizes two machines for presentations for eight shooting stations. The targets emerge from a high house ten feet above ground on the left and a low house 3-1/2 feet above ground on the right. Targets face one another forty yards apart and pass fifteen feet above a crossing stake set twenty yards from the shooting stations. Shooting stations are arranged around an arc running from one house to the other. A round of skeet consists of twenty-five shots, beginning with a high-house bird at station one, then a low house bird, then a double at one, two, six, and seven.
