    I need some help from the Ohio trap shooters on this site. I want to collect and publish an inventory of all the trap clubs in the state. I want to know about any place that throws american trap out of a house. One trap clubs, two trap clubs, all the way to Cardinal Center.

    If I could get one shooter from every county in Ohio to provide me the names of the trap clubs in their county I think I can get it done. I'm constantly getting requests from new shooters and interested non shooters about clubs in their area and I have to send them to another shooter close to them for the answer. I don't like not having the answer myself so I'm trying to inventory ALL trap clubs in the state.

    I will try to get the OSTA to put each clubs info, by county, in the gun club book that we put out and on the OSTA web page. It doesn't matter if the clubs shoot ATA or not, I want to know about TRAPSHOOTING clubs in Ohio.

    It would be nice to have and address and contact info for every club too, but first let's just figure out how many clubs in Ohio we have. Help me out if you can Ohio. My e-mail is dysinger@metalink.net But it would also be nice to put the info on trapshooters.com so everyone can see it right now.

    We have 3 in Williams County. Williams County Gun Club, Montpelier, Ohio, contact Mary Jane and Johnny Heisler, West Unity Sportsmans Club, contact Terry or Bill Mavis, and the Stryker Sportsmans Club, don't know contact but Steve Snyder would have the answer there. Can find out more and send to you. Good idea Brad.

    Greene County Fish and Game has 4 traps. The plans are in the works to buy 3 new traps in the very near future, to replace worn traps. We are doing this so we can throw the best targets possible for the shooters. The club throws registered and practice targets on Thursdays at 4:30 and Sundays starting at 11:30. Calcuttas each day.

    Brad: In the great area known as Fulton County Ohio-One of the 88 counties within Ohio we have 2 trap clubs-Fulton County Sportmen's club in Wauseon, Ohio which has three traps. In the neighboring town of Delta, Ohio we have the Izaak Walton League with two traps. Neither club throws registered ATA targets but both clubs are very active. Good idea on gathering this info, Thanks for the time, Roger

    Brad, It was good to see you and Ann at Middletown today! Good luck on your writing endeavor with the magazine. If your publication was looking for a trapshooter who has the gift-of-gab, they certainly selected the right man for the job. Take care!

    Thanks everyone this is going to take some time to get done but all the info I've gotten so far so fast makes me think it can happen. I was asking everyone at Middletown how many clubs they thought Ohio has. Since Ohio has 88 counties i would think we'd have at least that many trap clubs. I don't know if all the eastern counties and southern counties have clubs or not. It will be easier for me to find out about the western half of the state. I really need help with eastern Ohio as it's been thirty years since Ann and I lived in Wayne County. Thanks again everyone, keep sending and posting the info. Brad Dysinger
