    Bunker Trap is OLYMPIC Trap. It consists of 15 Individual traps in groups of 3. Follow the links above to see a series of articles on Moving from ATA to Bunker.

    Bunker is the most demanding of all the formal Clay Target Games.

    AKA International Trap... faster targets, lighter and faster loads - two shot allowed per bird... different range set-up - as was said, 15 fixed machines, 6 per squad - 5 stations, 1 on deck.

    regards,
