    Home Depot carries rolls of "Carpenters Paper" in 3' or 4'widths. It's about the thickness of brown paper shopping bags. Works great.

    Red Rosin Paper. It is $7.00 a roll. That is what I use. I was going to post this. You beat me to it. Jon

    Go to any large construction company and get their old blue prints. They are free and cut to size

    You might also go to your local newspaper and ask for roll ends of newprint stock. Jack

    Unfolded card board boxes work really well.

    One club I shoot has a roll of white plastic tablecloth material above their board.

    You just pull it down over the board. It's serrated so after you're finished you tear it off. Neat.

    You might think I'm crazy for shooting these at a little over $1 per; but they're the best, and have places to record your data. Collecting and recording important information such as this seems to me worth the effort. Hunter John sells 'em by the case. http://hunterjohn.com/clay.html

    Shotgun Sports Magazine. Buy the Winchester green targets. They are designed for patterning with clays etched in the back ground, and all the approbate data ready to be filled in. I know they cost a little more. But, what's money to a trap shooter?

    I had some leftover 24x36 Post-it note paper from a presentation. Just tear one off and stick it to an old piece of cardboard. Worked great. HJH

    I've done a heck of a lot of patterning over the years. If you're only going to shoot 10 patterns, anything works. You can even cut up and tape shopping bags together.

    But if you're going to shoot a lot of patterns -- my typical session is on the order of 45 to 60 patterns (A vs. B vs. C shells or chokes) -- the only way to go is with white butcher paper. Yes, it's a bit pricey. But it's worth it for the reason that the darker colors make it harder to find all the pellet holes. You have to take the time and with a lot of patterns that's lot of extra time and annoyance.

    You might find the above link of interest.

    One of the clubs where I shoot has a patterning board where a 36: roll of paper can be placed in the top, with paper pulled down, shot, and then torn off as needed. We use the heavy paper used when putting down hardwood floors.

    Inexpensive, easy to get.
