    We are just in the planning stages and being that I am simple, I've got some simple questions.

    When laying out 3 trap fields in next to each other is a straight line, what would be the measurement on how close they are together?

    We're on including a combination Trap/Skeet field on one od them to start with.

    90' center to center for trap only, and 135' for the skeet (that is 90 x 1.5)

    You could lay out all fields with 135' centers, and later have 3 skeet/trap combo fields (if you can afford to lose that much money on skeet).

    Make sure to space them far enough apart for the 30 yd shooters to come...

    If possible ... set them up for combination fields (135 ft.)!

    That way the "hog callers" won't be setting off targets on adjacent fields.
