    Does your club pick up unbroken targets? If so, what do you do with them: give 'em to members to do with whatever? Sell 'em? Load 'em up and shoot at them again? What, if any, value do you give them?

    I was at Linn Creek last week and they said that they let the school kids and Boy Scouts pick up targets and reshoot them for free. Sounded like a good use for them to me and a good way to get kids shooting. John

    Good idea John. Our club is small and poor. Consequently recycle some on the practice trap.

    Sold an automatic TrapLoader conversion for the Western trap to a club a few weeks back specifically for pick up targets. They too are a smaller club and use the targets for practice.

    Too much breakage to waste time picking up thrown targets. Maybe worth it if targets land in taller grass/weeds. We let the rifle shooters pick them up and use for targets.

    If the rain does not hit them, usually can be reused with no problem.

    Best to pick them up the same day.

    Went to one club where they let the trap help pick up targets. They were then thrown on the practice trap at a greatly reduced price (1 dollar per 25) and the money went to the trap kids as a bonus. Low price made the broken targets tolerable.

    Maybe ... just maybe ... a club could hire a small group of illegal aliens to pickup and or gently hand catch the birds before they hit the ground. Yeah it might be a slight expense to hire them but at least it would be one way to possibly get rid of them one shot at a time ...
