Five Stand Sporting Clays

Posted on: February 3rd, 2011 by

The game of Five Stand Sporting Clays, often called golf with a shotgun, is designed to more closely simulate actual hunting conditions.

The game of Five Stand is very similar to Sporting Clays in that a wide variety of targets are thrown. If you are not familiar with five-stand, it may become one of your favorite games to play with your shotgun.

A game of Five Stand is a great way to get a Sporting Clays experience in a small amount of space, which does not affect our valuable hunting areas.

No two Five Stand courses are exactly alike and our course is one of the best you will find anywhere. The Five Stand course has five stations, one for each shooter and each shooting station has its own unique target presentation. Rotating from station to station, the shooter is presented with targets at different viewing angles of the target as in Skeet.

Five Stand is a quick reflex game which will challenge any level of shooter while having fun. It is a 25 target game and can be shot in about a half hour. Targets are launched from eight locations in many directions for you to try to break from the five shooting stands. This is great fun and terrific upland game practice to warm you up prior to hitting the field for live birds. Occasionally we will change the target presentation to keep it fresh and challenging for you and your shooting friends.

A round of Five Stand consists of 25 birds and we have a Trapper on-hand who can explain the course, throw the targets for you and ensure your comfort and safety.

Give it a try, you will love it.

Any gauge shot gun may be used, but by far, the 12 and 20 gage are most popular. Choke selection presents a challenge. Some shooters prefer a double barrel gun, with one choke “skeet”, and the other “modified” for longer targets. A good all-around choke of “improved cylinder” is used successfully here.

Popular shot sizes are #7-1/2, and #8. As always: Eye and ear protection is recommended while around the Five Stand.
