Pairs may be presented as report(first target is thrown when shooters calls pull, second target is launched when gun is fired).  Shooter will have the right to shoot twice at the first target. Regardless of the result, the other target will be scored as lost, unless both targets are broken with one shot.

Scoring Pairs

  • In the event of a NO BIRD on the second target of a report pair, the first bird will be established as dead or lost and the shooter will shoot the second target as single
  • In the event of a NO BIRD on any target of a true pair, no score is established and the pair is shot over.
  • In the event both birds are broken with one shot, the result is scored dead pair
