    Loch Raven tried the greens, but a lot of folks hated it because of the tree background.

    Two years ago we threw the green targets at our club for league shoots the whole summer season.(16 weeks) We found that when the target stayed in the tree background they were great. However, when they went from the trees to the clear sky they seemed to "disappear" when they hit the sky. Since both of our traps were positioned to allow this target presentation we went back to the all orange. We also tried the New York target. After trying all,the majority of our shooters voted for the all orange. They seem to work best for our situation. Clyde

    One of the nicest little trap clubs in Southern Ill. I think our Southern Illinois zone shoot it there this year. Green targets are probably the best for their background. Can't wait to shoot the zone.

    The worse the background the better is green. Not great in the sky or over snow!!

    I agree with Barry it is the best little club around and you can't ask for a better guy than Pete. Also I might say that Pete gives more money back than any other club that I shoot at.

    Larry Mohr at Brittany had two boxes of phosphorescent green birds and I must say they look to be the biggest targets that I have ever seen.

    I don't think the all green would work that well at Brittany. Brittany doesn't need much color selection help. About any color dome would work there. Brittany has one of the fairest backgrounds on all traps in the country.

    I dont think you'll find a club that works much harder to give shooters a good place to shoot.Good targets, good food, and great people.With their background I think all green looks good.Can't wait to shoot the friday derby to see them at night. John kravanek

    we are talking if you have a lot of background like KVS has green works
    great. and yes it a friendly place to shoot.shot green in terrhaute Ind
    they work really good there to. don't think they would work very well
    if you have a lot of sky.like Brittany never shot them at night
