WHAT IS SPORT SHOOTING?

Sport shooting (Clay, Trap and Skeet) has gained popularity among hunting groups as game preserves and individual hunters are becoming more conservation-minded. In sporting clays, marksmen forgo live quarry and test their skills by shooting clay targets that replicate the actual flight of live game.


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRAP, SKEET, AND SPORTING CLAYS?

Trap: Consists of five stands with all targets moving away from you

Skeet: 8 positions with clays coming from both a low and a high tower, crossing in front of you

Sporting Clays: Each position is different and simulates the movement of live birds, rabbits, etc.


HOW DID THIS SPORT START?

Shooting and hunting has been a hobby enjoyed by royalty for centuries and has become a popular tradition among wealthy families in the Dominican Republic, and their Latin neighbors as well.
