The layout of trap shooting is different from skeet shooting in that there is only one house that releases targets and the shooters only move through 5 different positions. Trap shooting has been a sport since at least 1793 when it used real birds, usually the Passenger Pigeon, which was extremely abundant at the time. Fake birds were introduced around the time of the American Civil War as the Passenger Pigeon was nearing extinction and sufficient numbers were not reliably available. Bay County Conservation and Gun Club has two lighted trap fields that can be manually pulled or voice activated.
We are also the host facility for a number of local High School Trap Teams.
