English Skeet

English skeet is a popular form of the Skeet shooting disciplines. Clay pigeons are thrown in singples or doubles from two separate clay pigeon trap houses. The clay pigeon trap houses are located 40 meters apart at oposite ends of an arc. A layout consists of seven shooting positions where each targets are thrown at different speeds and heights.

Olympic Skeet

Olympic Skeet is an Olympic shooting discipline which is particularly challenging and requires smooth and efficient gun movement. Olympic Skeet has seven set stations set in a semi-circle, with an eighth station mid-way between stations one and seven. Olympic Skeet is very similar to English Skeet and the targets are predictable in both.

Olympic skeet is considered by many to be the most difficult of the three Olympic disciplines; this is due to the fact that the ready position means that the toe of the stock must be touching the body at a line affixed to the skeet vest level with the natural drop of the elbow. Add to this the fact that targets are released by a random timer which allows the clay to be released any time from zero to three second after the shooter has called.
