An active shoot is a shoot and client that you are currently actively working with. It is simply an organizational tool to help you categorize your clients easier. 

While a shoot is active, they show up on your default shoots list when you click the "shoots" menu item on the left-hand side of Sprout. 

Once you are done with a shoot (for example, after you deliver the finished product to them), you can archive that shoot to remove them from the main shoot list.
