    Best to visit a few clubs that already have a field up and running. All are different.

    The best fields not sitting on a skeet/trap field, so you can spread out the machines. Majority of machines moveable.

    A rabbit machine is fun, as is springing teal. Maybe an overhead target...

    Some stands are enclosed in buildings, most are open.

    A good remote controller will cost you a $1000 but well worth it.

    We bought 5 used machines and 2 new (A shondel/rabbit and and battue). Got it all done for around $9000 and it was paid off in 18 months. We charge $4.00/25 birds. We have all volunteer help.

    We recently bought a Teal machine for $800 and a wireless control for $1,000.

    No matter what you do, DON'T do 'manual' traps. Labor will be very expensive.

    If you plan a wireless+controller to automatic stations, two shooters can pull for each other if necessary -

    We just installed one at the Izaak Walton League in Lynchburg, VA last week. We bought 5 new Promatic machines with a wireless controller and installed it on a combination field giving us 8 machines total. Cost was around $17,000. It's been very popular so far. We charge $3.50 per 25 birds.
