Skeet

YouTube Video

The Skeet range is generally open every Wednesday (currently 10am) and Saturday (10am) morning.

We have a standard skeet range with high and low houses to throw the “birds” as well as wireless controls to set them off. This is a great way to practice bird hunting, or just to learn better shotgunning. Our range officers are very competent and willing to help and encourage newcomers.

You can shoot any gauge shotgun, just bring your own shells, gun, and safety equipment. It only costs $3.00 for the 1st round, $2.00 for the 2nd, $3 for the 3rd, etc ($5 Guests) to shoot the 25 shot course. Like all club events, visitors, spouses, and kids are welcome!

Don’t worry about your scores, just come out and have a “blast” (or 25)!!

Required Equipment:

  • Shotgun.
  • Minimum of 25 rounds.
Optional Equipment:
  • Shell bag.

Course of Fire:

The shooter shoots from seven positions on a semicircle with a radius of 21 yards (19 m), and an 8th position halfway between stations 1 and 7.

There are two houses that hold devices known as "traps" that launch the targets, one at each corner of the semicircle. The traps launch the targets to a point 15 feet above ground and 18 feet outside of station 8. One trap launches targets from 10 feet above the ground ("high" house) and the other launches it from 3 feet above ground ("low" house).

At stations 1 and 2 the shooter shoots at single targets launched from the high house and then the low house, then shoots a double where the two targets are launched simultaneously but shooting the high house target first.

At stations 3, 4, and 5 the shooter shoots at single targets launched from the high house and then the low house.

At stations 6 and 7 the shooter shoots at single targets launched from the high house and then the low house, then shoots a double, shooting the low house target first then the high house target.

At station 8 the shooter shoots one high target and one low target.

The shooter must re-shoot his first missed target, or if no targets are missed, must shoot his 25th shell at the low house station 8. This 25th shot was once referred to as the shooter's option, as he was able to take it where he preferred. Now, to speed up rounds in competition, the shooter must shoot the low 8 twice for a perfect score.
