The player stands behind the trap that releases the clays. Two clays are released simultaneously from the trap. They follow set paths through 5 positions, to left and right of straightaway. The player can take one shot at each clay, there are a total of 10 clays per trap.

Down the Line

Clays are fired to a distance of around 50 metres at a fixed height and with a horizontal 'spread' of up to 22 degrees either side of the centre line. The player shoots at a single clay in turn. Then move one place to the right and continue until they have all completed a standard round of 25 clays.


The Player has to shoot a set number of clays in each round within a certain time. Shooting the allotted amount of clays will progress the player to the next round failure to do so means 'game over'. Get a high score in Arcade to feature in the leaderboard.

About Clay Pigeon Shooting

What is Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay pigeon shooting, also known as clay target shooting is the art of shooting at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons or clay targets, with a shotgun or any type of firearm.

Why is it called a pigeon?

The terms normally used by clay shooters often relates to times past when live-pigeon competitions were held. Although competitions were made illegal in the UK in 1921. A target is still called a 'target' or 'bird', a hit is referred to as a 'hit' or 'kill', a missed target might be described as a 'bird away' and the machine which projects the targets is known as a 'trap'.


Clay pigeon shooting has at least 20 different forms of regulated competition called disciplines although most can be grouped under the main headings of trap, skeet and sporting.
