Pickup-Mounted Skeet Throwing System
I like to shoot skeet but wanted a better skeet throwing system, so I built one for the back of my pickup using sq. steel tubing to build a frame that mounts in the receiver hitch. It lets me sit on the pickup tailgate and shoot skeet without any fuss. My Clay King target thrower bolts on top of the frame. All I do is pull on the target thrower's string to release the thrower's spring-loaded mechanism that fires the skeet. I keep a box of skeet right next to me so I can keep firing as long as I want.
  The target thrower was originally designed to mount on a spare tire that you lay on the ground, but I had trouble keeping it from moving around and staying in one place due to the force of the thrower. The frame provides a solid place to mount the thrower so it won't move. Another advantage is that I don't have to dig out my spare tire every time I want to shoot skeet. (Joseph L.
