What is Sporting Clays?

Sporting Clays Got One! DU Sporting Clays Shoot

Sporting clays has its origins in England. The game is designed to simulate bird shooting in the field, except it is done using clay targets. Shooters, in groups of 5 or 6 walk around a course that has 10-12 shooting stations. Each station is designed to simulate a certain species of game, such as crossing mallards or rising pheasants. A round of sporting clays usually consists of 50 or 100 birds and is mostly done in a competitive challenging environment.

At this time the sporting clays field is only set up twice throughout the year. Once in May for our Spring recreational fun shoot and then for the Ducks Unlimited recreational fun shoot in August.
