    What color is your trap house?
    What color is your roof?

    Is there a preferred ATA spec?

    Getting close to having fields certified in VA……..


    Thanks!!

    I have seen Gray, Green, tan, with green the most prevalent.

    Of cours, most of my shooting places have grass. I would think to match the terrain and make the house unobtrrusive would be desirable.

    NOw, about that Mossy Oak Camo...............You probably have to het contact paper.

    We went down to the Delaware State Shoot then the Maryland State shoot at Millington, MD Gun club.

    We liked shooting over their traps so much we went back and painted our traps the same color. We love the color contrast from the Trap house and the Orange targets.

    Flat Black. Entire house and roof.

    They look awesome and the color contrast is great.

    You should look into it.

    Most of ours are green and black. When the trap houses were built many years ago, they were made much wider than the specs used today. So the main color is green, and the areas beyond the ATA spec'd width are painted black, both walls and roof. This is so you know where to hold your gun, because the total width would throw you off if you were used to standard dimensioned trap house.
