Our award winning club provides one of the best shotgun shooting complexes in the Northwest. The directions to the club can be found by using the link on the right hand side of this page. Missoula Trap and Skeet is an all volunteer club which is open at different times throughout the year, you can see our hours of operation which are available in the "Hours" menu at the top of the page. The easiest and fastest way to contact us is through email and we encourage you to use it as needed. We offer leagues for all three sports, Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays. We also have a Olympic Trap (Bunker) that is available for shooting on Sundays from 12-4 pm, see Eric Clark for details. New shooters are always welcome!!! We will be offering New Shooter Clinics before each league season starts.
Trap: Trap is broken down into three categories: singles, doubles, handicap. Trap League is singles and doubles and handicaps are registered events. The targets are thrown by a machine located and covered by a "trap house." For singles and doubles, there are five "stations", each 16 yards behind the trap house. In singles, each competitor shoots at five targets from each station. The trap machine oscillates left to right or center and the competitor does not know where in that arc the target will emerge. In doubles, the machine does not oscillate, but throws two targets simultaneously with each competitor shooting at five (5) pairs (10 targets) from each station. In the handicap events, the machine operates the same as in singles, but the shooters stand farther away from the trap house.A round of trap is a box of 25 shells.
Bunker: Olympic Trap requires an underground structure that houses 15 non-oscillating trap machines. There are three machines at each of five stations that throw a right, center and left target from each station. These targets may be thrown at various heights with left and right angles that can be as much as 45 degrees from center. Targets are also required to travel approximately 83 yards. The shooter is allowed two shots to hit the target
Skeet: A round of skeet involves one box of 25 shotgun shells per shooter, which will be fired at eight different stations, this involves a high house, low house and a set of doubles at some of the stations. There are concrete pads on which each shooter stands to take his turn. Normally, no more than five shooters, are involved in a single round of skeet at one time.
Sporting Clays: Throughout the course, the shooters might see targets crossing from either side, coming inward, going outward, flying straight up, rolling on the ground, arcing high in the air, or thrown from towers. This as well is a box of 25 shells.
