Trapshooting, dating in its present American form from the 1920s, involves firing at moving clay disks (“pigeons”) with a shotgun. The classical clay disk is orange—although there are also black, white, blue and green versions—and must not exceed 110 millimeters in diameter and 110 milligrams in weight. The shooter’s standard call for the launch of a target is “Pull!”, which quite a number of French and Belgian enthusiasts have interpreted as Poule (“Hen”), or sometimes “Pool”. All this linguistic scattershot plus a certain fondness for my native French has led me to opt for Poule! as the title for this disparate assemblage of some seventy objects of desire.
