Default Trap Field at Wood Lane Farm

Until a few months ago I had never shot ATA trap. I participated in a charity trap shot and really enjoyed it. I've now completed construction of my own trap field, as close to ATA specifications as we could get it without the help of an engineer.

I also acquired a Parker SC SBT, L. C. Smith Specialty SBT and an Ithaca 5E Flues SBT. I shoot trap just about every day now and let the guns compete against each other. Don't ask me which one is usually the winner.

Originally I had an Atlas AT50. Very reliable but I wanted more capacity. So I bought and AT250. Also have a remote foot release. I'm ready anytime, anybody wants to get together.

John, now you need pigeon traps. If a set of electric Barnabies is out of the question, I have a set of real old manual traps from the old Hegins range in PA. Linda wants them out of the garage, so they are for sale. You can pick them up at the Vintagers.

Great suggestion by Eightbore on the pigeon traps. If that doesnít work out a ZZ Bird ring would be good.

For low budget shooting with trap guns, "stick birds" are a real challenge.
