Watch: Canadian-Style Skeet Shooting

I like this. These folks get out in the cold to do some shotgun practice on clay pigeons. But instead of using a clay-throwing contraption, they simply set up a wooden ramp and use a hockey stick to fling the clays up into the air.

Pretty neat! The course of each target changes according to how the “stick man” flings it. No springs to fight and no worries that the arm of a mechanical thrower will slip out of your hands and chop into your shin. (Don’t ask me how I know about that one.)

Check it out, it’s pretty cool.
