Next week I let you know who the singles and handicap state champions are. The final two days will bring new champions to Montana’s trap shooting family. There are approximately 300 competitors shooting in this tourney. Some have come not only from our western states and Canada, but also as far away as Georgia and Vermont. The first 3 days the weather has been absolutely wonderful. Saturday will bring some cooler temps and stiffer winds. This will make for more challenging championships.

Be safe and good shooting.
