Please help us keep wasted birds to a minimum. Our birds are voice activated so do NOT talk when you are on the shooting line because it may release a bird. If you use a pump or semi-auto shotgun, please load your shell away from the microphone as the sound may also release a bird.
If a bird is not launching, please first check to make sure the trapline mic is powered on, then the score keeper power is on. Look to see if the power light is on. You may have to bend over or raise the mic to see that the light IS on. PLEASE avoid pushing buttons randomly.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
Everyone must follow sound firearm safety protocol including hearing and eye protection. NO shot larger than 7.5 and NO shells larger than 3 Dram. Anyone exhibiting the unsafe handling of firearms may be asked to leave and/or be expelled. ALWAYS point your muzzle away from people even when it is unloaded.
Please leave your gun case in your vehicle. It is very important that you carry your gun with the action open at all times. If it is in a case no one can see that your gun is unloaded.
