when you are not shooting skeet/trap/sporting clays on a course?

2 or more shooters' & rules to play by:

we call it - Louisiana grab [censored] or Chips

skeet throws - 1st shooter breaks then 2 nd shooter has to pick up a piece - if 2nd shooter scores he gets 1st shot on following skeet or if he misses the 2nd shot it go's back to the 1st shooter to break the skeet first - or if you have extra shooters who ever misses first get bumped & a new shooter steps up and starts in the 2nd shot position

what other games yall play for fun?

Don't play any games, but Annie Oakley could win the first one.

Did this as teams on station 4 of a skeet field. Team stands shoulder to shoulder, man on left takes the high bird first, man on right takes the low bird first, partner takes a piece left...total 4 points for high and low bird. Good money game when you’re on the road at a shoot with not much else to do.

We call it pieces but we keep going till there is nothing left or the remnants hit the ground. Fun little game out in a field

Not shotgun but with 22’s my son and I would set out water bottles at 10 yard increments and take turn shooting. kind of like the game of HORSE. We would shoot from different positions or supports.

Another thing we would do was to set out plastic forks. Poke them in the ground with the tines up. We would call a fork and which tine on the fork to hit. We would take turns, one shot per turn until that tine was hit. Then that person got to call the next shot.

A few of us developed this at the old Hill Country Gun Club between Fredericksburg and Kerrville back in the '80s:

Standard American skeet course. Shooter steps onto Station One and loads two shells and signifies "ready" by closing the action and holding the gun at low ready. Trapper (at HIS discretion) throws two targets (a high single, low single or pair). Any delay of launching and order of targets thrown is at the sole discretion of the trapper. Four birds from Stations 1,2,6 & 7. Two birds from 3,4,5 & 8. Doubles are OF COURSE allowed at all stations.

If the trapper knows the other shooters on the squad, they are free (and expected) to prey on any/all shooter weaknesses. For reasons that soon become painfully obvious, we named the game "GOTCHA".

One afternoon, I was shooting "Gotcha" with a group of friends and happened to be holding the controller when another shooter on the squad stepped onto Station 4. He loaded his gun, got ready and swung the action closed. He was used to my delaying (a normal tactic!) but I REALLY "drug my feet". When he was visibly vibrating waiting for the bird(s), I said (to no one in particular), "What the heck is wrong with this thing?". Of course, my buddy relaxed and swiveled his head around to see what the problem was...and I immediately launched a pair. Hearing the traps, he snapped his head back around and brought his gun up...but only managed to break one of the pair. As he ejected his spent hulls, I quietly said "Gotcha!".

We like to play knockout.. we alternate who's shooting first with one machine throwing clays on random. If the first person misses their shot, second shooter gets a chance to steal the point. We play to 10 and must win by 2. "Don't miss" loads of fun and make sure to play at a distance or use .410

Same game as op

We like to reenact things we do in the dove field when we're throwing at our private ranch/property. Here's some of the different challenges:

- Shooter must sit in chair, holding a beverage, shotgun across lap. After the call, you have to set the beverage down without spilling, stand, kill bird
- Shooter calls the bird, but gun only has round loaded in magazine. Load, kill bird
- Gun on tailgate, shooter facing toward front of truck, another shooter calls the bird. Shooter has to turn around, identify and kill bird
- Shooter standing, no shells in gun, call for bird, load one, shoot

Theres more I can't think of but that's an example of ways we mix it up. Again, its at our private property so obviously not something you'd do at a range.
