Skeet Shooting Instruction

 

THE HISTORY OF SKEET SHOOTING

In 1920, in the town of Andover, Massachusetts, a small group of upland game hunters took to shooting clay targets as a means of practicing their wing shooting. As friendly rivalries started to develop amongst the group, a uniform series of shots were developed to keep the competition fair and even for all. It was from this crude beginning that the modern day version of skeet shooting developed into what is now an international sport practiced by hunters and non-hunters alike.Charles E. Davies, an Andover, Massachusetts businessman and avid grouse hunter, is recognized as the inventor of the skeet game as we know it.

 

OVERVIEW OF SKEETING

Skeet Shooting today involves tens of thousands of people across North America and the world.There is American Skeet, International Skeet and English Skeet and each form of Skeet Shooting varies slightly from the other.The National Skeet Shooting Association is the governing body for American Skeet. Many thousand skeet shooters shoot "registered targets" that are sanctioned by The National Skeet Shooting Association each year.If you want to shoot better in the field, enjoy a day at the gun club, or compete with the top skeet shooters in the world for honor and glory, then skeet shooting is a great sport.The basic difference between skeet shooting and trapshooting is that in skeet, most of the targets are crossing targets and in trapshooting, all of the targets are outgoing targets.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
