    My buddy has been setting targets for 15 years at many clubs.. He shot today at cardinal center and said targets were fast and wide. More like three hole targets.

    I think it was more a matter of the setter, not the birds. I shot some really wild, hard right targets this past week at Cardinal.

    Shooters can break great scores on more angled targets. Just not all the time day in and out.

    Reasonable mind set. Right along the lines of Middletown and the old Missouri Fall Handicap formula when there used to be money in the game. I'm not sure it'll work but there have been enough people bitching about it that it's probably worth a try.

    A lot lower scores this year than last year. Was it the targets? The weather?

    I just walked out to bank 8 and looked at 4 Pat traps, and all had the #2 bar in them.They are cable strapped so it wouldn't be a easy change to a 3 hole bar....so wonder boys....think again...

    The cable restraints were placed on the traps to prevent ATA officials from demanding targets be set in the one hole!!

    Excuse my ignorance but can someone explain to me what does this mean two hole three hole why its good or bad. I notice and had a tough time at cardinal this week with hard right targets and normally I am pretty good with the right handers. It seems this week 90% of my misses where at the 4 and 5 post.

    If you watched the grudge match shoot off with 3 hole targets, you would know the targets at Cardinal were not 3 hole.

    Lots of south wind will make targets appear low and fast.

    2 hole and 3 hole refer to the trap settings. It basically affects the angle of the targets. 3 hole targets have sharper angles than 2 hole targets.

    sm AND ALL OTHER SHOOTER !!! Why are we worried about this ... The Targets were great!!! I won the B class non res and a brand new Shooter won non res Ladies Handicap .. with a 96 ... This place is top notch and there were many people in the shoot offs, ... they gave away many prizes ( larger Prizes) every night ... You can't ask for a nicer place to shoot!!! Look at the bird and shoot ... Just because PA uses a 2 hole target... Great Shoot and for me I will be back!!!

    When a strong wind is blowing from the south west. your right angle birds will be sharp & low. Its not the setting of the targets,it has always been controlled by the strong winds. I shot 500 at the Cardinal this past week. The strong winds made for sharp,low right hand targets. It was a challenge for me and many other shooters.

    It wasn't the hole it was the wind causing the effect on the rights. If you noticed the lefts sat up nice and pretty waiting to be shot.
