Skeet Division

The Skeet division of Nanaimo Fish and Game is managed by Wayne Watson and Jim Critchlow.

Skeet is open to the public every Sunday and Wednesday from 10:00am to 3:00pm, club schedule permitting. Check the events calendar for scheduled range closures and special events.

There are no barriers to entry with this sport, absolutely any shotgun can be used to participate. You don’t need a $2,000 Browning or Beretta, you should feel comfortable even if you arrive with a slightly pitted Mossberg 500 you picked up for $150. Ammunition is limited to target loads which are available to purchase at the Skeet clubhouse.

The rules of how a round of Skeet is played out can be confusing to the new comer. A round of Skeet involves one box of 25 shotgun shells per shooter, which will be fired throughout eight stations. Normally no more than five shooters, called a squad, are involved in a single round of Skeet at one time.

The shooters begin a round at Station 1 in front of the High House and progress around the arc to Station 7 in front of the Low House, ending at Station 8 exactly at the middle between the two houses.

Stations 1 and 2: High House single, shot first then a Low House single; High and Low House doubles, with the High House shot taken first. (Four shots at each of the two stations.)

Stations 3, 4 and 5: High House single, shot first then a Low House single. (Two shots at each of the three stations.)

Stations 6 and 7: High House single, shot first then a Low House single; High and Low House doubles, with the Low House shot taken first. (Four shots at each of the two stations.)

Station 8: High House single, shot first then a Low House single. If by now the shooter has missed no targets, the 25th shot is taken at the Low House.

Optional shot: This, which would be the 25th shell for a shooter who has missed no shots through Station 8, is taken for a second try at the first target missed at any station.

NOTE that at every station the High House shot is taken first except on doubles at Stations 6 and 7, when you shoot the Low House target before the High House.
