WHAT IS ENGLISH SPORTING CLAYS?
English Sporting Clays first started in England in the early 20th Century, it has become the most popular form of clay shooting and is now shot all over the World. Clay targets are presented to the shooter in ways that mirror the flight pattern of game birds and provides a shooting environment that offers different layouts and a constant challenge.
The shooting course is laid out in stands or stations. On each stand clays are thrown in pairs, either simultaneously, on report or following and generally in three to five pairs per stand. A course consists of numerous stands, where 100 birds or more may be presented. The course setter can use any type of clay and with variation of speed, angle and distance can make a shoot as enjoyable and testing as possible.
