Quick reflexes are the key to be a successful trap shooter, as the small and quick target (upper left corner) appears and vanishes in seconds.

With the length of the course and the hot temps Saturday, golf carts and utility vehicles were the transportation of choice.

A perfect shoot results in a clay pigeon that explodes into pieces.

Each shooting station is different, so participants have to watch closely to see which direction a clay pigeon will be coming from out of the terrain below.

Some stations, like this one, were off the ground to give shooters a completely different perspective when looking for their target.
