What is Practice and Wobble

Trap shooting is one of the three major forms of competitive clay pigeon shooting(shotgun shooting at clay targets). The others are Skeet shooting and sporting clays. Trap shooting has been a sport since at least 1793 when it used real birds, usually the then extremely abundant Passenger Pigeon. Fake birds were introduced around the time of the American Civil War as the Passenger Pigeon was nearing extinction and sufficient numbers were not reliably available. Clay targets were introduced in the 1880's.

A variant of standard trap is Wobble or Wobble Trap. The main differences are a much more extreme target flight path than in standard Trap shooting (the trap oscillates up and down as well as side to side). Although this version of trap is not sanctioned by the ATA, many shooters consider it to be more challenging and engaging as well as a more realistic preparation for bird hunting.

Shane's Sporting Clays offers a wobble clays shooting experience. Participants can use this area for practice or can make a sporting approach and will fire five rounds from each shooting position making for 25 shots in an individual round. The trap has an automatic wobble for more varying shot patterns. The wobble setting fires birds in a variety of angles and heights. The trap resets itself automatically after each shot so the shooter is never sure which flight path the bird will take. 


Are you new to shooting?  That's perfectly fine!  Shane's Sporting Clays has perfect opportunities for novice or new shooters.  One of our more popular services is our Practice Trap.  Unlike the Wobble Stand (Note Graphic Above), the Practice Trap is setup to simply throw a straight away pattern.  There is no variation of shots and the target flies in the same direction at the same speed and height each time it is thrown.  If you are trying to "qualify" for the Boy Scouts, or trying to teach a spouse, child or grandchild to shoot, this would be perfect!  We also offer qualified instruction!  Contact Us for more information!
