  • Try shooting trap, skeet, and...

    As we plunge into full blown summer when there’s very little to hunt, we sometimes get bored … unless we fish.
    I don’t understand it but not everybody fishes!
    Anyway, you’ve got guns, ammo and everything you need to shoot, but nothing to shoot at! That’s not exactly right. You just have to do a little research.
    No birds to shoot at? Why not try trap skeet or maybe sporting clays? The little clay birds fly out of traps (launchers) like little Frisbies. The angles and distances vary to give you a more realistic hunting scenario.
