Under the lights, a hard snow falling, gusty winds...ya just have to love winter trap. Tonight was our first night shooting...just in time for the storm that's hitting the midwest. I think the most important thing is to have a sense of humor about it. It was a complete hoot; targets going every-which-way. We even shot pretty darn well (given the conditions, and it was our first round since September). However....I really need to fix the hole in my left shooting glove before next week ;)

Gotta love it. Except cold fingers. The face numbness and sting is tolerable. But those breaks in that white, breezy background is gorgeous.

With our league and the funky winds we have here in the Arlington, Fairfax area, it is like an extended season with
the Nats Ace, Max Scherzer. You could swear he's in the house, humming 'em out !! haha

We shoot all winter. Nice setup we have heated building at the edge of the field, we can score from the windows. Only face the cold when it’s time to shoot

Been there, done that. This is from a few years back and luckily this winter it has been rather mild here (Cincinnati)

You guys are dedicated. The older I get, the more I hate the cold.

Gonna shoot a round of sporting clays tomorrow. High of 20 with a windchill of 6. Gotta love eastern Ohio winters. I’ve never shot any clays in that cold of weather. The trap range w the heated house sounds like a way better idea.

We have a Derby today and the high temp will be single digits. We'll probably still have 30 dedicated shooters attending it.

Here’s my favorite picture of dedication. When you run the snow plow to keep the fields open. I stopped here, Heber Valley, UT a couple years ago.

The day I was there, I didn’t shoot. My wife & I were taking a day off from skiing in Park City. I didn’t have a gun or decent eyewear. (I can’t shoot in street glasses - progressives) I would think as long as you’re equipped to deal with the glare, you’d be just fine. It’s a funny backdrop, there is the back of a private house clearly in your view.

How needs a patterning board --Just shoot in a good old fashion northern snow storm --Call for your target, and just before it disappears into the snow, you pull the trigger and watch the shot plow a perfect funnel to the bird and a orange cloud in the white snow -- Can't get any better than that! --{ P.S. --Buy the stick on toe warmers and stick on the wrist of your stock - keeps your trigger hand warm}
