    Try Contacting The VS channel. They seem to have some not prime time programing. All about ratings. Most that would watch would probably go shoot instead.

    TV coverage of trapshooting is about as exciting as watching paint dry.

    I would think The All World Championship would be televised with all the top shooters and all that money. I don't think the grand offers the money as does the All World.

    It was on TV a few years ago on a couple of outdoor shows and I think ESPN did a spot on it.

    The cameramen refuse to stand out there in 110 degree heat to televise it.

    When it was held at Vandalia Oh,I contacted my local new station(news9)and they told me they didnt have time to drive 4 hours across the state to cover the event with all the highschool football etc. going on at the same time.
    but my thoughs are the same you would thonk that the world championships would get some attention,and personally i would rather watch trapshooting on TV rather than Golf !now thats boring !

    News coverage on the shooting sports is always minimal. When they do cover it by the time they edit it they lose half of the intent. Just your typical dislike of guns.

    It is politicaly incorrect to televise the shooting sports. HMB

    World Championship? The rest of the world shoots International Trap, the same trap that is shot in the Olympics so ... when did they install bunkers in Sparta?

    Seriously ... putting it on TV for anything other than a quick blurb on the late night news would be an insomniacs cure.
