A version of sporting clays has been enjoyed in the US since the early 1800s. Back then, live pigeons were used for target practice, very different from today’s sport. The activity is also growing in popularity across the country and there are plenty of reasons why you should try it for yourself as soon as possible.
Sporting clays are fun
As if you need many excuses to spend your days in the glorious Florida sun, here’s another one. Sporting clays is a fun activity that you can do almost any time of year in the Sunshine State. The weather will rarely be a problem for you barring any tropical activity or hurricane warnings. You can spend a few hours or an entire day honing your skills on the course and will probably have more fun than you expect.
Pick up a new hobby
Sport clay shooting is one of the fastest growing hobbies across the country. Let’s be honest, who couldn’t use a new hobby or two? You should definitely give this one a try and you might leave thoroughly surprised how much you enjoyed your time on the course
Spend the day with family, friends, and sporting clays
Sporting clays offer a great opportunity to spend time with those you enjoy. Courses are often set out much like a golf course and players shoot in teams of two to six. There are typically many shooting stations on a course, perhaps even as many as a dozen or more. Just like in golf, teams advance from one station to the next trying to best their opponents with their shooting skills.
Plan an event
Clay shooting has also become a popular venue for events from charity fundraisers to family reunions. If you’ve never tried your hand at the sport, and have event planning on your to-do list in the near future, you should give a round of shooting a try. You might quickly become a fan and be on your way to planning an event that your guests will get excited about.
