Sporting Clays

Sporting clays is a clay pigeon game approximating field shooting conditions. There are now 6 to 8 stations, each presenting different shooting problems; birds crossing; birds flushing and going straight up; into the trees; and a rabbit jumping up and running. Each shooter has 50 or 100 targets; 6 to 10 at each of the 6 to 8 stations. The shooter is allowed 1 shot per target. Generally, there are no alibis.

We shoot the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Alma range with a shooters meeting at 10:00 a.m. February and March. 9:00 am April through October. Due to growing attendance we shoot in squads of 8 to 10 shooters.

Most shotgun gauge is acceptable(not 10 gauge) but loads must not be heavier than 3 1/4 dram equivalents and shot no larger than #7 1/2.

Youth shooters are most welcome. They shoot the same stations as the adults but shoot at only 25 singles. Youth shoot free with an adult.
