What are some good games that we can do with the wobbler or the trap thrower? Right now we are doing the 25 targets, two man team, only two shells in the gun at one time. The targets never stop, so it becomes a rhythm thing with your partner.

I have began to really enjoy missing those very thin and flat clays that look like a thin rabbit. we launch them like a normal target but with a slight tilt. they really curve but not always exactly the same. it is a blast trying to hit them. Use a full choke for the most fun :yes:

the other thing we do is knock the center out of some of the standard clays. they look normal from the edge but they get out to where your just about to shoot and then they drop like a rock. really surprises your buddies at the trap and skeet range.

Have fun :thumbsup:

waterfowlhunter are you talking about bateus (sp?)??? They use to give me a fit trying to kill them. I had someone tell me to use #9 shot on them, I ended up breaking a lot more of them once I switched.....

you can also play knockout just like in basketball. line up as many shooters as want to play, and start with the closest to the thrower. each shooter gets 1 shot to hit the target, but can only shoot after the guy ahead of him. it goes like this: shooter 1 calls pull, target goes out, shooter 1 hits, throw over. shooter 2's turn, he calls pull, shoots once, misses, shooter 3 fires and hits, shooter 2 is knocked out and sits the rest of the round out. now shooter 3's turn. the turns go by who shot first on the last throw. 3 calls pull, hits, leaving a large piece still flying. if shooter 4 can break the piece, shooter 3 is out. now shooter 4 calls pull, misses, shooter 5 misses, shooter 6 dusts it, shooters 4 and 5 are out. shooter 6 calls pull and misses, shooter 7 hits, and leaves a piece, shooter 8 breaks it, shooters 6 and 7 are out. it can go for as long as the target is still flying, including circling back around to the first shooter after the last has his turn. the game continues until only 1 is left, and he wins.

very fun with a lot of people, even more fun if theyre not that great!

Here in Reno it is called the cluster and we normally have a $5
fee per shooter.

It gets a pretty good pot with 20 or more shooters, starting at the 27 yard line.

As it goes on, the shooters will have to move back more,to get rid of the rif raff.

Some come down to 2-3 shooters, 30 feet behind the 27 yard station.

lots of fun to watch, and to win !!

POOP SHOOT

It takes some work, but...

1. Glue cotton balls to the underside of clays.
2. Lay out a rope hoop somewhere under the flight path of the clays.
3. Time your breaks to land the cotton call in the loop.

We usually shoot 5 clay rounds, with a maximum of 6 shots. (sometimes the parachute poops need a push in one direction or the other.) It works best out of the low house, with wobble locked on a high flight path. Loop about 5 feet from the stake toward the low house, stand where you want.

we play the same thing, except if shooter 1 hits, shooter 2 can shoot too, if he clearly hits a chunk shooter 1 is out, then shooter 3 can try if he hits 1 & 2 are out, and so on. it really encourages powdering those clays.

I was introduced to the game of pieces at the 2009 SCTP national championship
You line your players up in a row side by side with your thrower in front and each shooter has 1 shell
your #1 shooter says pull 1st they shoot if they miss the next person can shoot and the next after until it hits the ground.
if the #1 hits it the 2nd shooter can break their pieces and put them out of the game. But if the 2nd misses they both stay and the its the 2nd shooters turn.
Its an elimanation game and alot funner wen u back up after u go through each shooter once
real good game to bet on
