With the decline of tobacco and other crops, North Carolina farmers seek alternative sources of revenue to hold on to their family farms. The Fowler family, who have owned their 600-acre farm for three generations, chose sporting clays. Their business is called Fowler Sporting Clays and Game Preserve of Madison County. Sporting clays is the fastest growing shotgun sport in the nation and differs from traditional clay target games in the level of difficulty and the natural terrain. Schmitt describes the Fowler's gun range and the sport which originated in England almost 100 years ago.
