Main Topic:Sporting Clays with Jared
Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays. Oh my.
1. The sport dates back to England around 1750
2. Originally real birds …. pigeons … were used as the targets. The birds were kept under a hat or in a trap until released. Where the birds/clay targets are released from is called the trap house.
3. By the time of the American Civil War, artificial birds made from glass were being used. By 1880 the targets evolved to clay.
4. In trap shooting, the clays are released from a single house/trap and are generally released away from the shooter. The shooter is placed around 16 yards behind the trap house.
1. Norwegian word for shot
2. Developed to simulate birds flying across your path.
3. Clays are released from the left and the right. Can be done as singles or doubles.
1. Introduced to America in 1980 by Bob Brister in the July edition of Field and Stream.
2. Often referred to as “golf with a shotgun” because a typical clay course includes 10-15 different shooting stations.
3. Unlike trap or skeet which have repeatable target presentations, sporting clays simulates unpredictable targets. Variety in trajectory, angles, speeds, distances and target sizes.

Manuel Lora: What a great show and I agree with you--things are moving towards if content providers don't make their shows available in a format available then they are doomed. Our generation (I am 35) are thankfully young enough to have caught some of the changes.
Our kids will basically never read a newspaper, magazine or know what a "channel" is. Most will barely ever see or use a stamp. They (as well as some of us) want to watch content any time on any device.
Ben Wagner: You mentioned on GGR #90 not being able to stream Michael Bane's shows. I asked Outdoor TV the same question last week, and it turns out you CAN get the shows online. Visit www.myoutdoortv.com and you can pay $5 per month for the whole archive of shows. I haven't signed up yet, so I don't know how soon new episodes are available after they air.
