Extreme Backyard: Skeet Range Right Outside your Door

Olympic Skeet Range in the Backyard

A lot of hunters love to skeet shoot and trap shoot. It’s a good time to have with your friends, helps you practice for ducks and other waterfowl and is a competitive sport. Many of us just set up a pull system or throw clay pidgins ourselves in our backyards, but Olympic skeet shooter Allen Treadwell of Seligman, Missouri took it one step further.

Skeet Range Backyard

Allen is a former member of the U.S. Olympic Shooting team and to be an olympic athlete, as most of you know, takes a ton of practice. Allen was driving over an hour one way every day just to practice and was wasting a lot of money, and valuable time. Allen decided enough was enough and decided that the time he spent commuting was too much. In the video above, you can check out what Allen built in his backyard, an Olympic size skeet range.

Olympic Skeet Shooting

This range is within fractions of a real Olympic skeet range and Allen is able to practice just like he would shoot anywhere in the world. In the video he says that the practice field at home allowed for him to not only practice more and improve in competition, but also give him more time to do other things he loves. Check out the video and let us know if you’d love a skeet shooting range in your backyard.

Extreme Backyarding

I’m not sure if having a skeet range in the backyard would be what I’d want to do, but it sure is a good way to practice some waterfowl shooting.
