The Field Experience

Progressing through 14 stations over a mile-long course, participants are presented with a variety of clay targets. Face flushing clay targets that zip in and out of the trees. Challenge your skills at the “duck decoy” station where incoming targets float in towards you. At our “rabbit” station, targets are thrown end-over-end and skitter across the ground.
