It is a game that is a cross between trap and sporting clays. It resembles trap in that there are 5 shooting stations (stands) where each shooter gets 5 shots. After the five shots, shooters rotate to the next stand. This is where any resemblance to trap ends and sporting clays starts. There are seven automatic traps somewhere on the course that present the targets in a way to mimic game shots. There are bouncing rabbits, springing teal, falling targets, rising targets, arcing targets, standard size clay targets and a couple specialty clay targets like battues and midi birds. Nothing boring here. It is a great way to hone your bird shooting skills, or if you are not a hunter, a challenging game and a reason to get that old shotgun out of the closet.
What do you need? A shotgun capable of shooting two quick shots is needed. Your hunting gun with improved cylinder or modified chokes will work fine. Will also need thirty shotgun shells per 5 Stand round. That's it, that is all you need. It is fun and frustration with a shotgun.
We shoot on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:00. The shoot fee, for 5 stand, is $6.00 per round (25 birds). We will also be shooting mid-week starting in the spring continuing through fall, check out the calendar for exact dates. Contact Larry or Ron for more information on 5-stand.
