What is Skeet?  See the brief description below:

Description – There are a number of variations to the game of Skeet, but the most basic version involves up to 5 shooters, shooting on a semi-circular field.  The field consists of 8 stations, numbered 1 through 7 from the left side of the field to the right.  Station 8 is situated halfway between stations 1 and 7.  Clay targets are thrown from a pair of houses that are located on the left and right sides of the field.  Clays are thrown slightly outward from the field, but generally they appear to be thrown from the left to the right side of the field, and also from the right to the left side of the field.  The house on the left side of the field is called the “high house”.  The house on the right side of the field is called the “low house”.  Each shooter begins by shooting at station 1.  When all shooters are done, the squad moves to station 2.  When all are done at station 2, the squad moves to the next station.  Shooting continues until all shooters have fired at 8 stations.  The sequence of targets at the various stations is:

A high house target, then a low house target, and then a simultaneous pair (double) at stations 1, 2, 6 and 7.

A high house target, then a low house target at stations 3, 4, 5, and 8.

When shooting station 8, all members of the squad shoot high 8.  Then all members shoot low 8.

There are 24 targets.  Plus an “option” target.  The first time a shooter misses a target, that target (the option) is repeated.  If none of the 24 targets are missed, the shooter shoots an extra low 8 target, completing a total of 25 shots.
