GEC Shooting Sports Weekend

The course is located across Boy Scout Camp Road from the camp entrance. This new high adventure program is for Scouts and Venturers at least 13 years old and Unit Leaders. The Cherokee Sporting Clays course will be open to Units during the off season under the supervision of the Cherokee Rangemasters. Our course includes clays thrown as singles, simultaneous or true pairs and report pair s the second clay launched on the report of the shooter’s gun, hence the name report pair. Targets are thrown at different angles and speeds: sometimes across the shooter’s view crossers , towards the shooter in-comers or away from the shooter out-goers. The shots are intended to simulate hunting for quail, grouse, pheasant, pigeon or other game. Sporting Clays is closer to actual field shooting than any other shotgun sport. The sport began in England in the s when glass balls filled with feathers were used to represent various games, allowing hunters to hone their skills. With the introduction of clay targets, the sport began to spread. During this time, skeet and trap were growing in the United States, but it took over sixty years for sporting clays to travel across the ocean.
