Skeet, Trap, and Shotgun

Please use only the Trap Field (the furthest field from the gate) for all non-scheduled use.  This includes patterning, use of your own clay thrower, etc.  The Skeet Field (closest to the gate) will only be used on Sundays during regularly scheduled shoots under the direction of the Skeet Range (Shotgun) Chairs and Co-chairs.


Welcome to the Trap section of York County Fish and Game

We shoot Sundays starting at 12 pm.
Please check calendar for further scheduling information.
The cost is $4 dollars for members and $6 for non members.
The guns most participants are using are 12 guage or 20 guage shotguns.
The ammo is limited to size 7.5, 8, 9 shot.
The trap game is fairly simple. You say pull, the target gets released and you shoot the target before it hits the ground.
There are 25 targets to shoot in a round. And up to 5 people can shoot per round. You shoot 5 times from 5 different postions. The person that shoots the most targets is the winner of the round.
Please be safe and come to the range to try or watch.
