Practice is Practice Regardless

I have been asked which is better shooting practice for hunting season Trap, Skeet or Sporting Clays. The answer is all are good shooting practice.  The different shooting disciplines each are key to being a good shotgun hunter.

Here is my take on the disciplines:

Sporting Clays:

1. Great fun and course varies according to the shooting club.
2. Easiest to learn
2. Emphasizes various hunting scenarios. ( especially ducks and doves)

Trap:

1. Great fun and the course is the same regardless of the location.
2. Somewhat challenging to learn.
2. Emphasizes precision shooting from certain distances. (pheasants, quail, dove, ducks)

Skeet

1. Great fun and the course is the same regardless of the location.
3. The hardest of the disciplines.
2. Emphasizes speed and concentration from certain distances. (quail, dove, pheasants)

Here is a great link to understand better the 3 shooting disciplines.

I generally like Sporting Clays and Trap to begin warming up for Dove season.  Regardless of what discipline you like it is important to remember to get out and practice before season.

Here are some pics and video of my latest practice session.  My shooting coach sits in the scorers seat, Coach Maddi Pruett.
