Vermont State Trapshoot
June 18-20, 2004
About 200 shooters attended the 96th annual Vermont State Trap shoot using 6 fields, all with pat traps and voice release. The weather was mostly fine, a little rain Saturday morning but it was over by the time the shooting started, the wind did make for some challenging targets on the 2nd hundred. Saturday night there was a pig roast on the grounds for supper. We all had a fine time and many thanks to all who made it happen.
Clifford Is State's Big Shooter -- North Danville's Terry Clifford recently won the Vermont residents' single championship and the handicap championship.
In the singles competition you fire 16-yards from the trap house. Out of 200 targets Clifford broke 196 of them tying Tylor Bigras of East Montpelier.
In the shoot off Bigras broke 48-out-of=50, while Clifford was perfect 50-for-50.
Clifford who was 20-yards from the trap house in the handicap shoot hit 95-of-100 targets to win that title outright.
