Trapshooting is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shotgun shooting at clay targets). In trap shooting, the targets are launched from a single "house" or machine, generally away from the shooter. Trapshooting was originally developed, in part, to augment bird hunting and to provide a method of practice for bird hunters. Use of targets was introduced as a replacement for live pigeons. Indeed, one of the names for the targets used in shooting games is clay pigeons. The layout of a modern trapshooting field differs from that of a skeet field and/or a sporting clays course.

Trapshooting has been a sport since the late 18th century when real birds were used; usually the Passenger Pigeon, which was extremely abundant at the time. Birds were placed under hats or in traps which were then released. Artificial birds were introduced around the time of the American Civil War. Glass balls and subsequently "clay" targets were introduced in the later 1800s, gaining wide acceptance.

We have a fully automated Voice Activated Trap Field.  It features a high capacity ProMatic Trap Machine and Voice activation at all five stations.
