Five Stand

Five Stand combines elements of Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays. There are five stations, or stands, and six clay target traps on the Pathfinder field.

Shooters shoot in turn at various combinations of clay birds. Each station has a menu card that lets the shooter know the sequence of clay birds he or she will be shooting at (i.e. which trap the clay bird will be coming from), depending on which game is played.

Pathfinder 5-Stand typically plays the NSCA Level 2 game, where each shooter is presented with 5 targets at each station: 3 single birds followed by one pair.


After shooting at the 5 birds on the menu at that station, the shooter proceeds to the next stand, where they find a new menu of 5 targets. There are a total of 25 birds in one game of 5-Stand.


The traps are numbered as follows:
(1) “Flush” bird flies overhead away from the shooter
(2) Skeet high house
(3) Springing teal
(4) Rabbit
(5) Incoming bird flies toward the shooter
(6) Skeet low house
Shooters have full use of the gun, so 2 shells can be used for each single-target presentation (like an instant Mulligan!), so up to 40 shells can be used to complete a single game.
Make sure you bring enough shells to the line!
Pathfinder’s 5-Stand shooting schedule is:
Monday: 4pm til 6pm
Saturday: 8am til noon
Sunday: 8am til noon
