The game is played on a course made up of 12 shooting stations. Unlike trap and skeet, there are a variety of specialty clay targets in sporting clays,including standard targets, MIDI and MINI targets, rabbits that roll and bounce on edge, battues that arc, and rockets that are heavy and maintain speed. Targets are released as single targets, simultaneous pairs or report pairs. In addition, the presentation of the targets vary; they may be thrown crossing from one side to the other, quartering away, quartering in, inbound, outbound, overhead, underfoot or straight up in the air. You never know what you are going to get! It is the variety of targets, target presentations, course layouts and terrain that many find so enjoyable about sporting clays. $125 per person includes roundtrip transportation, shotgun, ammunition, shooting vest, hearing and eye protection, Rangemaster and clays.
