What is Skeet Shooting?

– Skeet was invented by William Harnden Foster, an avid grouse hunter, in 1915 as a sport called Clock Shooting and evolved to its current setup by 1923. In 1926 a contest was held to name the new sport, and Gertrude Hurlbutt named it skeet, which is derived from the Scandinavian word for “shoot”. During World War II, Skeet was used in the American military to teach gunners the principle of leading and timing on flying target.
