    Ok, but it has very strange field markings.

    It looks like the field markings are leading to the stations to be shot....since we don't see the entire field, there may be a station further back.

    I have shot "Skrap" before but the field had no markings.

    Eric that isn't even a legal combination skeet and trap field. That traphouse (for the lack of what it actually is) certainly doesn't conform to the recommended dimensions of a trap house.

    As far as scrap is concerned, I suppose their is more than one way to shoot scrap. We always shot trap target on skeet stations. I have never seen it shot as Ljutic231 describes.

    At some of the fun shoots in south Texas, we shot from both skeet houses and the Trap house. dopending on the wager.Back in the late 60's

    After taking a look, it seems like a regulation trap/skeet field. There is the 16 yard that goes off away from the shooter at an arc and the front station at the Y looks like a skeet station.

    That is simply a combination Trap and Skeet range. It is the first one I've seen with the Trap house that close to the Skeet field, but that's what it is alright.

    The Trap house looks normal to me. I suspect it might look weird because of the extremely short camera lens.

    It is an overlay set-up, but this layout is a-typical... the traphouse is usually set much farther forward in the layout... with station 8 just a few few yards in front of the 16 yard line and well behind the trap.

    While we can't see station 4... I'd bet it's not located at the typical 25-26 yard line on position 3...

    In those photos the Skeet station #8 is right up against the back of the trap house. If you look you can see a yellow rectangle right behind the trap house.

    I have never been on a combo field that the trap house is that close to the skeet stations. Also that trap house has to be 10 to 12 feet wide if not more.

    I have never seen a trap lay out that far back on a combo field. All I said was it isn't made to the specs. laid out for a combo field in the plans that I have.

    I wonder how trap close hard lefts get to the skeet high house? I'm glad I don't have to shoot on that mess.

    Our trap houses are set further back, the skeet targets cross at the front of the trap house. This puts the station 8 pad within 3 feet of the trap house.

    On a windy day the skeet targets really dance as they cross the turbulence above the trap house.

    If you can shoot good here you can shoot good anywhere.

    ASPHALT is a semi-liquid black goo. It holds the aggregate in BLACKTOP, MACADAM or BITUMEN together.
