Olympic Trap Clay Pigeon Shooting

Olympic Trap (often shortened to just ?trap?) consists of 6 shooters competing at a time ? a trench, 15 meters in fron of the shooting line conceals 15 traps arranged in in 5 groups of 3. The traps are set to fire going away birds to a distance of 76 meters at varying elevations and with a maximum horizontal angle of 45 degrees either side of the center line. Shooters take tunes to shoot a target each, and then move along the shooting line ? a shooting pattern is in place to ensure that all competitors shoot exactly the same birds ? but in a randomised order.

ShootingClays currently has 16 clubs listed that offer Olympic Trap as a discipline.
