a Busy Weekend

This weekend was pretty busy. Saturday was the last day of 4H archery for the year. I ran a station in the woods at 2D animal targets. we shot all day, and had Johnsonville Brats and hamburgers for supper. it was a great time and every one had fun.

Yesterday I went to shoot state for high school trap. we shot 4 rounds of trap in a row, we went from one trap house to another. It was windy and every one on the team shot bad yesterday. I ended up with a 83 out of 100, compared to last weekend I shot a 91 out of 100. After we shot we grilled brats and hamburgers for lunch in the parking lot of the trap range with the hole team. After lunch a cupel of us went and shot some sporting clays. For those of you who don't know what sporting clays are, sporting clays is as close to hunting as you can get with clays. There are stations set up normally in the woods and heavy cover. And the targets are all sorts of different sizes and colors, throne at all sorts of angles, hights, and distance's, there is also a rabbit target that is a clay target throne on its side to make it role and bounce on the ground. There are stations that you have to shoot singles and stations that you have to shoot doubles. Sporting clays are normally 50 targets a round. My favorite station was one that had a rabbit angle away and a small bird angle in as a double. Out of everyone that shot sporting clays I was the high gun and I only had a 35 out of 50, but I did shoot at the last 10 targets with the gun over my head. The funny thing is that one of the guys that shot with us normally shoots 25 out of 25 wen he shoots trap and he ended up with a 19 out of 50 at sporting clays. sporting clays is allot of fun and I recommend that if you ever get the chance to shoot them that you do so, because it is allot of fun and great practice of hunting.

Sorry that I do not have any pictures I forgot the camera both days.
