WHAT IS CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING?

Clay Pigeon shooting is an official Olympic target sport that involves firing a shotgun at clay discs, which are projected over the range from a spring-loaded or electronic device known as a trap. The trajectory of the disc is intended to mimic how birds, or game, might fly, giving an indication of the origins of the sport.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING

Participants of competitive shooting are said to benefit from improved cognitive abilities including decisiveness, swift reaction times and excellent levels of concentration and focus. The nature of the sport means that shoots are typically held in rural locations and many miles can be covered on foot, helping participants maintain a good overall level of fitness and contributing to good general health.

COMMON CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING INJURIES

In terms of safety, Clay Pigeon shooting is a highly-regulated sport but, as with any sport or activity, accidents can happen. Besides the obvious risks of participating in a sport that uses firearms, there is also the possibility of being hit by fallen clays. Another cause of injury could include accidental injury from mishandling a shotgun, such as shotgun recoil.
