- The third episode in series two of our How to Hit series tackles the low incoming target. Unlike many Sporting targets, this doesn’t really simulate anything you might encounter in live quarry shooting – but it’s the sort of thing that a course setter might add on a Sporting layout to add some interest and variety in the stands.
- The second episode in series two of our How to Hit series tackles the rising teal target. This target is named after the small duck that is known for its habit, when flushed, of taking off at a steep angle and climbing rapidly up and away from the shooter.

- The 100 Straight Skeet Club Championship took place on Sunday 25 March at Northampton Shooting Ground. 79 competitors turned out on what proved to be one of the best days weather-wise that we have had this year.
