Brief History of Sporting Clays in the USA
While Sporting Clays has its roots in Trap and Skeet, it is a completely different game with its own set of rules. The game is played over a course which may feature varying terrain with several different target presentations from different locations with varying flight paths. While Sporting Clays was originally designed to simulate live game scenarios, it has evolved into a sport all its own. The game is played on a course, made up of stations. Each station features a shooting stand for the participant to shoot from. Upon the shooter's call, targets are released. Targets can be thrown as single targets, simultaneous pairs, or report pairs where the second target is launched upon the report of the shot at the first target. Unlike Trap and Skeet, there are a variety of specialty targets in Sporting Clays.  These include 90mm MIDI targets, 60mm MINI targets, rabbits that roll and bounce on edge, battues that arc, and rockets which are heavy and maintain speed. In addition the presentation of the targets vary, may be thrown crossing from one side to the other, quartering away, quartering in, inbound, outbound, overhead, underfoot, or straight up in the air. It is the variety of targets, target presentations, course layouts and terrain that many find so enjoyable about Sporting Clays.
