Ducks Unlimited Tune-Up

By Staff | Sep 22, 2020

Palo Alto Sportsmen held their 5-stand and trap shoot “Fall Tune-up” event on Sunday, Sept. 13. 5-stand is a shooting course using portable throwers, whereby targets were launched as singles or doubles at various angles and speeds. The presentations tried to mimic shots encountered in hunting situations, similar to sporting clays, except there were five stations set up on the west trap field, and targets were launched from the skeet houses and the portable throwers. This was a 50-rd competition, 25-rd at a time.

The second portion of the event was 50 rounds of wobble trap making for a total of a 100-rd competition.
