Skeet

Skeet is shot from eight different stations arranged in a semi-circle between two trap houses, the trap houses are known as the “High House” and the “Low House”. The high house target is released from a fixed trap six meters above the ground. The low house target is also released from a fixed trap at a half meter above the ground. Unlike Trap, these traps are fixed and the shooters know the trajectory of the targets. The shooters move around through eight shooting positions, or stations, with the horizontal angle of the target trajectory and the shooting position changing at each position. The shooter is permitted one shot only at each target. A variation to this routine, known as “Skeet Doubles”, is sometimes shot where more emphasis is placed on shooting pairs of targets, one from each trap house simultaneously, through the third, fourth and fifth shooting positions. A complete round of Skeet typically consists of 25 targets, with four targets shot from four stations, two targets from three stations and singles from the last two stations and a repeat at the last target if you have shot the round clean, otherwise immediately after your first missed target if you are misfortunate enough to miss one.
