FIND THE DISCIPLINE THAT BEST SUITS YOU

Clay pigeon shooting offers hunters a multitude of possibilities to express themselves in a variety of environments.

We would like to present the seven clay pigeon shooting disciplines listed by the French Clay Pigeon Shooting Federation and the French Shooting Federation.

At present, only three of the seven disciplines are included in the Olympic Games.

Find the discipline that best suits you

OLYMPIC TRAPSHOOTING:

Olympic discipline

This discipline is carried out with the gun "shouldered" before the target is pulled.

Trapshooting involves five groups, one group per shooting post, of three launchers who distribute the targets at different angles, according to a regulation pattern.

The clay pigeons are launched randomly at the shooter's signal.

UNIVERSAL TRAPSHOOTING:

This discipline is carried out with the gun "shouldered" before the target is pulled.

Trapshooting involves five launchers who distribute the clay pigeons according to different trajectories and following a regulation pattern.

The clay pigeons are launched randomly at the shooter's signal. They will be launched at a distance of 60 to 75 metres.

DOUBLE TRAP:

Olympic event

The double trap is carried out on the same infrastructure as the Olympic trapshooting and always with a "shouldered" gun.

The only difference is that only one group of launchers is used. The three launchers are stationary. They send two clay targets simultaneously at three angles: -45°; 0°; +45°.

The shooter has only one cartridge per target.

OLYMPIC SKEETSHOOTING:

Olympic event

Skeet is a discipline in which the shooter must unsling their gun. The shooter only takes the gun off their shoulder when the target appears.

The targets are launched from two huts, one high (Pull) and one low (Mark).

The Olympic Skeet competition is held at eight shooting stations, equally spaced in an arc.

The shooter has only one cartridge per target.

THE HUNTING TRAIL RANGE:

The hunting trail range must be equipped with a sufficient number of target launchers to ensure that the shooters experience natural game hunting conditions: Partridges, ducks, pheasants, woodcocks, rabbits, etc...
Walked-up, close to the ground, driven, crossing, half-crossing, returning, in the lowlands, in the woods, hindered or not by trees, bushes or natural obstacles, these are the conditions for shooting on a hunting trail range.

Distances, trajectories, and the environment vary for each target on the hunting trail.

The targets can be single, doubled simultaneous, or doubled with a rifle shot. Shooting is done with the gun "unslung" and the shooter has two rounds for singles and one round per target for doubles.

COMPAK SPORTING:

This is a sport that is a mixture of 2 disciplines.
The shooting stations are similar to universal trapshooting, with a framework that limits the shooting angles. The trajectories of the targets are similar to those of the hunting trail range, i.e. they can go in any direction. Shooting takes place in a defined area in front of the shooters. Each shooter is allowed 2 cartridges for singles, and one per target for doubles.
Shooting is generally carried out with the gun "unslung", but shooting with the gun shouldered is allowed.

DOWN THE LINE (DTL EURO TRAP)

The Down the Line (DTL) shooting stations are positioned on an arc of a circle located fifteen metres from the launcher.

The launcher is robotised sending randomly a clay target in a space defined from -30° to +30°.

The shooter has two cartridges per target and the shooting is done with the gun "shouldered".
