3. SPORTING CLAYS
The newest clay target game is not the rigidly programmed and predictable clay target affair we find in trap and skeet. Perfect scores are virtually unheard of. This game is normally played in the woods, and the targets the shooter will see are only limited by the imagination of the course designer. Targets zip by at speeds and angles unseen in the other two games. They may be single targets, two targets thrown at the same time, or a target thrown after the shot report of the shooter's gun addresses the first target thrown. Those targets may also be crossing, climbing straight up, falling straight down, quartering out or in, streaking high overhead coming in or going away, or even bouncing along the ground.
