SHORT EXPLANATION OF SKEET & LINKS TO HELP YOU SHOOT BETTER

What is American Skeet?


Skeet is a game played on a semicircular, level field. Eight shooting stations are located around the field, and targets are thrown from two houses on opposing sides. The house on the left, referred to as the "High House" is tall and throws the targets from left to right. The house on the right, referred to as the "Low House" is short and throws targets from right to left. As the shooter moves from station to station the relative angle of targets change from incoming and outgoing to crossing proving the shooter with varying shot difficulties.
Shooters take their turns from each of the eight shooting stations. At stations 1, 2, 6, and 7 a shooter calls for a single target from the "High House", then a single target from the "Low House", and completes his/her turn by calling for "Doubles". (Both targets thrown at the same time). At stations 3, 4, 5, and 8, a shooter calls only for a single target from each of the houses and does not shoot Doubles.
