The Sporting Clays Field
A typical 50 round course consists of 8-10 different shooting stations, with each station presenting targets from a single trap or multiple traps. Targets are thrown as singles or pairs. Pairs include:
- True Pair or Simultaneous Pair – thrown at the same time
- Report Pair – the second target is thrown upon the firing or report of the shooter’s gun on the first target
Sporting clays simulates the unpredictability of hunting field game birds and even rabbits, by using a variety of different trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distance and clay target sizes.
