Today’s Trap Shoot in Tremont

August 07, 2010 at 04:40 PM

Today I attended the Northfield Church annual trap shoot outside of Temont. Like always, we had a lot of fun! I took my 17 year old son Drake and my 15 year old Nephew Andrew, who’s visiting from Naperville, IL. with me today. This was Andrew’s first time out ever with a gun and his first time trap shooting and he smoked! We shot 100 rounds of ammo at 10 different stations leaving my right shoulder a little red. Of course, the younger guys say they don’t have red marks but I know better!

It never fails, when you give advice, it always comes back to haunt you! After mentioning to the boys to “lead the clay pidgeons” or to “shoot them right out of the hole”, when it was my turn, it was me that needed to do the “leading , etc”. Nevertheless, it was all about fun and it was fun we had! Thanks to the people at Northwoods for putting on another great event!
