Trap is usually shot in squads of five shooters. A round of trap consists of 25 targets per shooter. A trap field has five positions, or stations, numbered consecutively from left to right. Five clay targets, sometimes referred to as "birds," are thrown for each shooter at each position, with one shot being fired at each bird. After firing five rounds in rotation, each squad member moves one station to his right, with the shooter on station five moving over to station one.

Trap is best shot with #7 ½ or #8. Larger shot is not effective for clay target shooting and is prohibited on the skeet fields.
Please decock the machines and unplug them when you are finished shooting. Leaving them cocked causes damage to the springs. If you don't
know how to uncock the machines, please ask someone for help or contact the range director. Instructions for trap operation are posted inside each house.
Clay target fees for trap are $3/round for members and $5/round for guests. Note: Members will be charged for their non-paying guests' rounds at the current guest rate. Be sure to log in and pay your fees before leaving.
