Brief History of Skeet Shooting in the USA
The game of Skeet came a few years after trap shooting. It was invented in Massachusetts in 1920, by a man hoping to improve his wing shooting abilities. There have been many refinements to the game of Skeet since that time. Typically American Skeet is the variety played in the United States. A skeet field has 8 shooting positions and two traps. The targets are thrown from the "High House" on the left side of the field, and from the "Low House" on the right side of the field. These "houses " are simply structures that hold the traps, or target launchers. The targets have a distinct flight path. In Skeet, only one shooter holds the shooting position at a time. Each shooters shoots a sequence of birds from 8 stations from a "high house" and a "low house." Skeet also has a format where different gauge shotguns are used. Using 12 gauge, 20 gauge, 28 gauge and .410 bore guns lends a great deal of variety to the game.
