The Clampetts want to go home because the hunting in Beverly Hills is poor. But Jed says they aren’t going home just to shoot. Elly suggests they shoot skeet, which is what Drysdale shoots. As a matter of fact, Drysdale is preparing for a skeet-shooting competition with Bill Hacker. But Drysdale is having troubles; his partner is hurt, and the Clampetts are shooting at passing cars, according to his wife. So Drysdale visits and learns what a great shot Jed is, hiring him as Vice President so he can compete in the competition.
