Looking to make things more fun. I know of some clubs about a 45min. drive from me that shoot a game called Scrap. As I understand it, it involves the use of a trap machine in the skeet field. We have that setup up now, does anyone have any idea as to how it's played or somewhere in the net I can find info?

I have heard it's the trappers choice to throw a trap house bird and or a low house / hi house on doubles. I don't have much more then that to go on. We are revamping our skeet/trap shooting games for more people to enjoy.We are putting back the use of voice calls for the trap houses and a Protection Skeet shoot is in our future as well... we have the pads mite as well make use of them.

Jerbear: I would imagine there are variations of this game. We shoot from all the skeet stations (Except station 8) utilizing birds thrown from the traphouse. We start at the #1 skeet station. The 1st shooter shoots until he hits the target. ( He could actually shoot all 25 shells from this station if he can't hit one). After everyone has shot and broken their target on Station #1, everyone then moves on to station 2 and it continues. If you complete station 7 and there are shooters left you just reverse the process and go back to #6, #5 etc. until the game ends. When you are out of shells you are out of the game. the last shooter to have shells left wins. (Everyone starts with 1 full box of shells) We usually have everyone throw in a dollar and the winner takes all. If you really want to make it interesting, set the trap on "wobble" !! Ed

If you contact gary at rmclaysports.com , he has a game like you explained that is operated with a canterbury controller. He received it about three months ago and it sounds like it would be alot of fun. He has all the info and an instruction sheet explaining the differant flights and timing. John

Jerbear, we shoot a version of this game using a wobble trap machine. We do two versions which I'll describe. First of all, the machine is adjusted to throw the target at the fastest speed and the most extreme angles side to side and up and down. We shoot the game from skeet positions 1 through 7. Each shooter takes 25 shells only and remains on each station (starting with 1) until a target is broken or 5 shots are taken whichever comes first. Progressing in this fashion through station 7, we then return to station 1 in reverse, etc. until all shells are expended. The last person to break a target is the winner. Another version involves using a back up shooter on each target. The second shooter can shoot only if the first misses. If the second shooter shoots after the first shooter breaks the target, it's lost. No limit to the number shells that can be taken and each team shoots at 25 or 50 targets, depending how long you want the game to last and someone has to score. The largest number of breaks wins.

We have been shooting this game for 5 or so years. The highest score yet in the first version has been a 24. Perfect scores are common the second version. JJ

Why not just shoot a modified round of fun from the low gun on a field that has both the skeet houses and preferably a wobbly trap house or at least a trap house in the center.

Begin shooting from station one like normal skeet and call pull ... the person pulling can pull instantly or like in international up to a 3 second delay. Now the challenge is you have no idea whether the bird is going to be coming from the high house, low house or trap house and it could be a double as well ... what really makes it a major challenge is you cant shoulder the gun till you see the bird.

Work your way around stations 1 to 7 like that and you will run your butt back to the easy 16yd line faster than a 6yr old running for the ice cream man on a hot summer day.

We shoot Scrap as a buddy game. On skeet station 1 one person shoots, if he hits it the buddy shoots at the largest piece. Then you reverse the shooting order and shoot it again. Aech break gets 1 point. After station 7, total up the points to determine the winning team. Lots of fun!! Usually a small jackpot on each event.---Don

Don ... shooting that way with a full choke and a 1-1/8oz load of #9 would eliminate a 2nd shot of any type so that could seem an instant disadvantage to the scoring method.

But all trap shooters say how sissy them wussy skeet shooters are with there wide open chokes ... are you saying that a trap shooter should change to a wuss choke on the skeet field?

HORSE is another good game on a Skeet/Trap field. First shooter gets to select the spot and target(s) as long as it's safe. Everyone shoots, a miss is a letter. Five misses, you're out. The younger guys at our club are partial to this game and their position/target selection can get quite challanging.

A nice variation...shoot from Skeet 1-7, when target is hit, move to next shooter/station, maximum allowed 5 shots per stand. Shoot 1-7 then reverse 6-1 then reverse 2-7, etc. A perfect round will end on station 1. Shooter with shells left when all others are out is declared winner. To add a bit of fun, put a premium on the un-used shells to be paid by those who are out of the game. We used to go .10 to $1.00 depending on the group.......

We shoot Skrap, but we also shoot "hunters trap". Hunters Trap is shot gun down 13 yards behind the trap house with a sub gauge (we prefer 28ga) but it can be shot with a 410 as well. Shooter can not premount gun. bird come at the call, shooter mounts and fires. We make the radius behind the trap wider too, as long as it's safe. Sometimes we shoot high birds, sometimes low, a Wobble trap would be better yet. Shoot 5 birds from each of the 5 stations. We use a wood stake to mark the stations.

Just introduced it at my home club think it will take a little time for some to accept a new fun game. Any suggestions on how to get people to try the game and have some fun
