While Sporting Clays has its roots in Trap and Skeet, it is a completely different game with its own set of rules. The game is played over a course that may feature varying terrain with several different target presentations from different locations with varying flight paths. While Sporting Clays was originally designed to simulate live game scenarios, it has evolved into a sport all its own. The game is played on a course, made up of stations. Each station features a shooting stand for the participant to shoot from. Upon the shooter’s call, targets are released.
