    I figure that I would offer some help to those who are experiencing trap burnout. I, myself, cannot shoot trap right now (doctor's restrictions), and I've had a lot of time to ponder other activities. I think after you try some of these, you'll be glad to return to the trap line. You can thank me later.


    1. Get a Prison Pen Pal. Eventually marry that prison pen pal - or just get married period.


    2. Swim with Sharks. The best time is right after you get a paper cut.


    3. Participate in an amateur kick boxing match.


    4. Kiss the girlfriend/boyfriend of someone who can kick your a$$.


    5. Throw a tomato into a fan at your local police station.


    6. Play hopscotch on the cement...with real scotch.


    7. Climb skinny trees. See how high you can actually go.


    8. Cook Popcorn with the lid off while your wife is getting ready for work.


    9. Have a barbed wire limbo contest.


    10. Take up naked bacon frying.


    11. Try rose bush jumping.


    12. Take up midnight golf.


    13. Get a partner and join a 3 legged soccer team.

    It could be that your doctor is an anti-gun nut and one who is concerned about lead pollution to our streams and the damage caused to the neighboring trees and shrubs. If trapshooting is temporarily on hold due to a verifiable condition you might consider taking up making chain-mail or perhaps flying competition kites.

    Hope you get back in the groove soon.

    My doctor is a trapshooter, but my surgeon isn't, I admit.

    No Fred, that comment was for the guys...just fueling their misconceptions cuz it's funny. Our honeymoon is still going quite strong. I married the right guy. We might see you next year some time.

    If you can't shoot trap, how about shooting rimfire, either for targets, plinking, hunting or varminting?

    Recurvy ... you could get a bale of steel wool and knit yourself a new stove.
