It was a lot of work but mostly for Bobby. He's the guy who works with me and builds everything and fixes everything and pretty much does everything. Not sure what I'd accomplish around here without him.

This was before using a golf club handle and shaft . His contraption was hickory or ash with a big metal plate and spring for the target .

I still have my bird sticks but haven't used them for a while. I kind of quit after sending a clay target through the side of a camper that was parked a bit too close to the field.

Yes, Charlie, the hole in the side of the camper was a surprise for me. At the Ommelanden range in Delaware, anyone who didn't want to shoot trap, skeet, or sporting clays could shoot stick birds. Stick birds were charged by the hour, not by the bird. The thrower would work as long as you wanted to shoot for a set price. The thrower always outlasted the shooter. An "hour" usually went south after about twenty minutes.

At Shennendale granted itís in Augusta County so plenty mountains and the skeet fields sit on top a good size mountain . Iíve seen Wayne Erskine sling targets that went well over 100 yards and quickly
