View Full Version : favorite shotgun game

December 5, 2001, 12:52 PM
of those of you out there who have tried the various shotgun games, which one did you like the best?

I like FITASC the best, followed by 5 Stand.

But then again, I like fiberglass underwear. :D

I went dove hunting with my little brother this year, and we had a blast, there were more birds than we knew what do with, good way to spend time with family, and a challenging fast bird to try and shoot.

You asked about shotguns games, so I voted for trap, my drug of choice these days.

Hunting's no game, it's a way of life(G)...

Can't vote for any of those but can I submit a write in?

"Deer Slayer"

Whoopsie, I mis-read the title for the thread, I thought you said "names" not "games"

I get a hoot out of clay shooting but it doesn't quicken the pulse like a good day of Quail hunting, a big covey of quail can be a blast even if you don't get a shot off. ElNino was a great year for quail, 3-4 hatches that year and just huge huge quail coveys at every turn of the tumbleweed or shrub.

I voted for trap but really, it's hand-thrown trap. That's the only reindeer game I've played so far.

I shoot them all and like them all including 5 stand. I shoot more trap than the other games because I like the focus it requires. Skeet is a pastime and sporting is great fun. I don't consider hunting a game and ruffed grouse is the king of the birds.

Skeet, to me, Trap shooters take it too serious.LOL

Of the games you list I would have to pick Sporting Clays, but my favorite shotgun game is a tie between steel plates or pepper poppers and bowling pins with either of my Remington 1100s.
Both games give me great satistaction when the steel drops or the pins fly off the table.:D

Hi, all,

Could someone explain to me the difference between skeet, trap, and sporting clays?
