1. A shot considerably outside the normal group on a target. 2. A shot considerably outside the normal range with regards to velocity or pressure.
A shot that flies substantially longer than desired, usually as a result of too much grass between the club face and ball. Flyers are more common from the rough than from the shorter fairway grasses.
This term sometimes refers to the gun station at which a live bird is shot; can also refer to the live shot bird used in marking set ups. This is a dogâ€(tm)s favorite bird. In hunt tests or field trials, it is not practical to use live birds on every mark. Dead birds are sometimes thrown with an accompanying shot. Dogs love the flyers so much that it can distract them from watching the dead-bird marks. Or, a dog can be tempted to return to the fall of the flyer.

A straight line or flight of stairs from storey without intermediate platforms. Flights of stairs that are very long (more 15 to 20 risers) cause some people to experience vertigo and they will not use them. Most accidents occur at the top or bottom sections of stairs. The first four steps at the foot or head are the most critical. Stairs with one or two risers have been associated with incidents; some building standards require at least two, three or more risers in any one flight. When the elevation is too low to accommodate more than two or three steps, a ramp is recommended.
