    If a 2 hole target angle is 17 degrees left or right of center, what is the angle for a 3 hole target?

    Techincally speaking the old Winchester Hole 3 is 22 degree either side of centre.

    But many clubs set them at 15degree's. Even less and at 46 yards. The sport is getting harder all the time. - Jim

    Jim, when the rule was 22 degrees or 3 hole, what prevented clubs from setting softer easier angles then? How about today?? Hap

    I agree 100%.

    Those clubs throw soft targets to keep the shooters coming back to make money, and the shooters like it because their scores are higher.

    Kind of a dirty little secret of trap shooting that's not talked about.

    Adios, Dirk
