Shooting Tips

Welcome to what we hope will be a long series of blogs on the shotgun sports. We hope to pierce the veil that obscures some of the more technically complex aspects of shotgunning, sharing information and sparking conversation among the members of the shotgun sport fraternity.

Our head instructor, Luther Cutts (a Level 3 NSCA certified instructor), is continually working on a wide range of topics that we hope will contribute to the continued growth of clay target games as well as upland and waterfowl hunting.

We hope to have something for everyone – from the very basic parts of the game to some of the more complex and controversial topics. We hope that you find these topics enjoyable, informative, thought-provoking or perhaps just entertaining. We welcome your feedback and ideas on what other topics you might want to see in the future.
