Skeet was invented by Charles Davis in 1920 - in Andover Massachusetts. Today’s skeet field varies little from its 1920 beginnings. It has eight shooting stations and two trap houses. Seven of the stations are arranged in a half moon between the two trap houses, and one station is directly between them. The high house, on the left side of the field, throws its targets from a trap 10 feet above the ground. The target rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it travels to the center of the field. The low house target, on the right side, leaves the trap house just 3-1/2 feet from the ground. It also rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it reaches the center of the field. A round of skeet consists of 25 targets, with 17 shot as singles and 8 as doubles.

Sporting Clays is the fastest growing shotgun sport in the United States – it is often referred to as “golf with guns”.  At Bass River, we shoot a variant of sporting clays called “Five Stand”.  A Five Stand course is made up of 5 shooting stations, where you are shown 5 different clay pigeon presentations at each station, for a total of 25 “birds” per round.  All are welcome - from beginner to veteran.

Trap was first shot in England in 1750 - and Trap first shows up in American history in 1831. In Trap, “birds” are launched from a single house or “bunker”, in a direction away from the shooter. The shooter stands on one of 5 stations and shoots at 5 birds before advancing to the next station - a round is comprised of 25 birds.
