Crazy Quail Live Bird Simulator Sporting Clays – SHOT Show 2013

The Crazy Quail bird thrower holds over 1600 birds in one filling and delivers an infinite number of presentations. Watch the video below it is quite a machine.

The demo machine had Apex throwers, but it will work with any throwers, and makes your whole setup portable and flexible.

Crazy Quail Bird Throwing System

Live birds ahoy! If you went stumbling around the corners of the basement at SHOT Show 2013 you may have come across a trailer mounted giant clay pigeon machine Lazy Susan. There is almost no other way to describe this monstrosity called the Crazy Quail. Made of solid galvanized steel, it comes in sizes that hold from one to four bird throwing machines. The machines you see mounted on this demo unit at the show are made by Apex, but it accommodates just about any thrower. The machines rotate on a spinning plate, so you can throw several presentations at one time, and the whole system is portable, so one unit can be used for several locations at the same club.

The premise of the Crazy Quail is to get more birds in the air for clubs trying to make money. More birds equals more rounds equals more ammo, equals a profitable club. If you run a sporting clays club, the Crazy Quail is affordable, and throws up to 160 birds per minute. The quad configuration holds 1632 clays at one time. That is about 65 rounds, on one loading.

The Crazy Quail booth was a big hit at SHOT, even though they were off in a corner. They came to the show with 20 machines to sell and all but 8 were gone on Friday. Visit the website for more information, and check out the video here or on their website.

      That’s the thing. Brain was all dried up by the time this story came along and don’t remember. Maybe it was five grand?
