Skeet Range Shooting Day

What is a Skeet Field?

Today’s skeet field varies little from its 1920 beginnings. It has 8 shooting stations and 2 trap houses. As seen in the picture above, 7 of the stations are arranged in a half moon between the 2 trap houses, and 1 station is centered directly between them. The high house, on the left side of the field, throws its targets from a trap 10 feet above the ground. The target rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it travels to the center of the field. The low house target, on the right side, leaves the trap house just 3½ feet from the ground. It also rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it reaches the center of the field.

What is a Round of Skeet?


  • A round of skeet consists of 25 targets, with 17 shots as singles & 8 as doubles.
  • 5 shooters maximum per round
  • Needed for 1 round = 1 box {25 Shells} with an average cost = $8.00.
  • Two rounds = 2 boxes {50 Shells} average cost = $15.00.
  • The average time to shoot 1 Round = 35/45 min.
  • Maximum # of shooters for 1 round = 5 or 15 shooters in approximately 3 hours.
