October Trap Shoot @ Kayaderosseras
Kayaderosseras Fish & Game Club, Ballston Spa, New York.
My second visit of the year. The last "targets only" shoot of the year.
Two trap fields.
The club advertises a 9:30 start time and at 9:30 if not sooner the first squad was on the field.
A cool start to the day, but by the time my squad (squad 5) took the field it warmed up enough so that a few layers of clothing could be removed.
No problems with the voice release and machines threw targets without any issues.
I usually have problems with field #2 targets. My score drops off, but not this time. Had four good rounds!
A two hour drive to get home and passed on handicap. Doubles was also offered. A long weekend as we shot NSSA skeet on Saturday in Quebec. It was time to head home.
On the way home I almost took out two turkeys on I-87. Saw one crossing the road and slowed down. From 70 to 50 in a blink of an eye. Sure enough two more popped out and if I had not slowed to 50 I would have hit them both. As it was, a close call. Nice size birds!
