There are four major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shooting shotguns at clay targets). They are Sporting Clays, Skeet, Trap and Five Stand. These are distinguished roughly as follows:
Sporting clays includes a more complex course, with many launch points including open field and woodland. The course simulates upland bird and rabbit hunting. See Video of 2021 Cabin Fever Open on new course. https://youtu.be/RTlgVpVWL-E
This project was funded in part by a grant from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
Skeet shooting, Targets are launched from two "houses" in somewhat "sideways" paths that intersect in front of the shooter.
