Looking for something the whole family can do together? Then consider heading to Silverton Sporting Ranch for some clay target shooting that everyone will enjoy.
So just what do clay target shooting at Silverton involve. Most people are familiar with trap shooting where there is one machine and the targets are all going away. Skeet is a little different in that there are 2 traps, a high house and a low house. By moving to stations in a half circle layout targets are either crossers or going away. Consistency is the name of the game with trap and skeet.
Then we have sporting clays- where anything goes and I do mean anything. Targets can come be going away, incoming, crossers, from towers overhead, "rabbit" bouncing across the ground. These targets can also be fast, slow, close, far, curling, rising, or falling. Ok so a single target at a time of one of these is good but pairs are even better. A report pair is 2 different targets the second one coming when the first is shot at. A simo pair is both coming at the same time. How fun does that sound?
