Skeet

The term "skeet" refers to an old Scandinavian word meaning "to shoot” It stands for a competitive target shooting sport that was invented in America in 1920 by several Massachusetts men who wanted to improve their aim before hunting season. Their system of simulating the flight pattern of live birds with the use of hand-propelled, inanimate targets began as a spirited game between hunters. Today, a modern version of that game has become an international sport in its own right, for hunters and non-hunters alike. It is the fun of the game and the thrill of marksmanship that unites all skeet shooters.
