Did something different Tuesday. Shot a round of Sporting Clays followed by my 2nd time trying Wobble Trap.

Wobble's not as easy as it looks.
Mrs.One eyed and I like shooting "Wobble Trap" when we finish a round of Trap shooting. Those low flying (3 feet off the deck} outgoing are very frustrating but, break one of them and you are a Hero !

I'm not sure I hate myself enough to do ZZ birds.:)

However, when my club bought their ZZ setup, the shotgun field manager asked me to show him how to wire it to do something it wasn't meant to do, so I am familiar with the electronics to a degree.

Shot my third round of wobble trap yesterday. The first time was around 4 years ago and the second 2 weeks ago.

Hit 18 using a 20 gauge and 7/8 oz of #8s

Ran the first 10 then started thinking about it and blew a few shots.

The guy who shot just before me was using a .410 bore pump and 3" shells with #7.5 shot and he hit 8 total. I thought that was pretty respectable.

I've never shot bunker but the guys I shot wobble with all have at a range up north around 60 miles or so called Ben Avery.

From what I heard, a lot of the cost was from donations from shooters as a bunker setup is pretty expensive.

I ran across these photos of a new bunker trap (I think international). 15 traps. I think this was South America (possibly Argentina). Initial costs must have been incredible but I bet a lot of fun.

There are bunker set ups in Tampa and Gainesville here in Florida. Just north in S. GA there is a club with TWO full bunker set-ups as the owner coaches young kids in Int'l trap and Int'l skeet:

I once shot a 249 and a 248 in the same year in San Antonio in 12 gauge. I tried to blank that 100 bird International out of my mind, but I think it was around a 75. lol

Their birds were always nice though. I did get to shoot in a .410 practice event with Wayne Mayes way back when. It was an honor and of course he shot a 100. I miss those days, but even if I could shoot my old scores, I don't think I could afford it these days.

Those worm burners are very tough with a gun that is setup to shoot high poi.!
But I think the first time I broke one of those , I lost my composure and yelled YES! .

And yes it is a lot harder than it looks, but a heck of a lot of fun.
