Low Field

Low Field Shotgun Event
Frequently asked questions –

Q.    What is Low Field?
A.    Low Field uses a trap house and the participants stand to the side of it instead of behind.

Q.    Why participate in Low Field?
A.    Low Field is a fun event for the new or inexperienced who wish to experience the fun of clay target shooting.  Experienced shooters use the event mostly for practice.  Safety is first and foremost, but outside of safety, the event has a light and friendly atmosphere.

Q.    Which shotguns are used?
A.    All and any if you have a licence for it.

Q.    What if I don’t have a shotgun?
A.    Come along anyway.  As long as you are respectful to other people’s gear, there is a good chance that someone will be happy to lend you one.

Q.    What do you need to participate?
A.    To shoot Low Field you will need to have hearing and eye protection.  SSAA range rules also make it mandatory to wear covered in shoes.  You will need current photo ID if unlicensed, or current firearms licence.  Juniors must be accompanied by an adult and also have current photo ID.

General Information
Both new and experienced competitors can compete in the same squad.  For new shooters of clay targets, it is common to start slow, before trying to be competitive.  It is important to focus on the fun side, and let the scores slowly improve as you gain experience and your confidence grows.  Low Field provides that kind of environment.
