Aren’t “stick birds” simply clays thrown from a hand-thrower?

Yes it's a hand thrower .

And generally the handle on the thing is 36-60 inches long .

Stick birds are thrown at a velocity probably two to three times the velocity of a hand trap. Remember, I told you about the time a target was thrown through the side of a camper. Embarrassing but true. Very seldom is a bird thrown from a good bird stick broken on the second shot. In fact, it is not often visible with the naked eye by the time you are ready for the second shot.
