3 Bird Hunt and Cover (3BHC)

We have introduced a new game, played from the 5-Stand, called 3 Bird Hunt and Cover! 

Here's how it works:

1. Teams consist of two shooters. Each shooter is allowed 2 rounds in the gun.


The primary shooter will be in stand 1, the cover shooter in stand 4. In the event of 2 teams shooting at the same time, the second team will shoot from stand 2 and 5, respectively.


At the call of pull, 3 targets will be launched. The cover man will shoot one of the targets as the primary shooter attempts the other 2. At the miss of a target the cover man will attempt to break the target. Coordination of the order targets are broken is left to the shooters.

2. The grid will consist of a standard 5 stand layout, with the addition of 2 extra traps. 


Called the X bird, they will be placed in front of stand 1 and stand 5. At the call of pull, the trapper will release a pair of targets from the standard grid as well as one of the X birds. The X bird will be released in a random fashion. The X target may be released from either trap machine.


A round will consist of 51 targets. 17 pairs from the standard grid and 17 singles from the X bird trap machines.
