GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With less than one hour before the start of the Green Bay Packers' second day of minicamp Wednesday, the team canceled in order to conduct a private team function. It turns out that private team function is clay shooting. Yes, the Packers traded in helmets and footballs for guns and clay targets. Undrafted rookie wide receiver Dale Moss, who played college football at South Dakota State, tweeted: "Soooo team building today is clay shooting, lol, definitely something that'd be going on in South Dakota too." This is not the first time in coach Mike McCarthy's seven seasons in Green Bay that the Packers have canceled a minicamp session in favor of a team-building day. Previously, the team has tried out paintball, bowling and a home run derby. Though no pictures have yet emerged on any of the player's Twitter accounts from their clay-shooting day off, tight end Tom Crabtree tweeted: "friendship teambuilding smiles weapons" After taking the day off from football Wednesday, the Packers will return to the practice field on Thursday morning for the final day of minicamp. That will be their last day together as a team until the start of training camp on July 26. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
