Crazy Quail Target Systems (VIDEO)

Crazy Quail Target System’s spinning throwing machines caught many the eye at the 2018 Great American Outdoor Show earlier this month.

Fortunately, company President Barry Bourdage was on hand to give a brief rundown of Crazy Quail’s latest innovation — a more affordable version of its $20,000 flagship target throwing machine, the Quad.

“Our main is business is we move things,” he said. “This particular machine is a clay throwing machine. It’s all tied together with an android or an iPad. There’s a drone brain on this, so we can control the x,y and z movement within a high degree of accuracy.”

The $7,500 Mini system includes a 360-degree rotating base, an MEC thrower with motorized tilt and roll, a wheel kit, a gateway controller and a mobile app.

“Now I can replay the same game and shoot ten targets and my buddy can shoot the same exact targets I shot,” Bourdage said of the wireless control.

Crazy Quail debuted its Quad thrower at the 2013 Shot Show, where Bourdage and co-founder Bob Butterworth sold a dozen machines in just four days, according to Guns and Ammo magazine. The two men worked with friends over many long nights in a garage developing the “revolutionary” machine, capable of throwing up to 160 targets per minute.

Five years later, Bourdage says he sells 95 percent of his machines to private individuals. For a longer demonstration video of the system in action outside, click here.
