Skeet

The Mainville Sportsmen’s Club Skeet range is open every Monday evening starting at 5 p.m.

Skeet shooting is a recreational and competitive activity where participants, using shotguns, attempt to break clay targets mechanically flung into the air from two fixed stations at high speed from a variety of angles.

Unlike trap, Skeet is a purely American shotgun game, born and bred not only in the U.S.A. but in the very cauldron of American independence — Massachusetts.

In 1920, several Andover bird hunters, casting about for a more realistic means of honing their wing-shooting skills by duplicating all the shot presentations they might encounter in a live bird field, devised a scheme they called Shooting Around the Clock.

The “clock” was a circle with a 50-yard diameter, a trap placed at 12 o’clock to throw targets toward 6 o’clock and shooting stations at each of the hour numbers.
