Aim the shotgun towards your target. Unless its moving. Then aim in front of it.

where are you going to school Wes? I started a competitive shotgun team at OSU in 2006. It is a ton of fun and got to travel a lot of the country with the team too.

That would be cool. Make sure you guys work on fundraising. We really emphasized it while i was there and I never had to pay any entry fees or round fees when we shot and the club was able to provide the shells too. We practiced in Guthrie twice a month too. Can't practice enough. Fort Hays in Kansas has a team too, they arent too far away. Every club holds a major shoot during the year and then everyone goes to San Antonio in April for College Nationals. Try to get a hold of OSU and they can get you guys a schedule of shoots the other colleges are holding. Feel free to PM me if you ever need any info. Even though I am alumni now, i still keep in touch.

We are working on fund raising right now because the school isnt going to give us any . I'm hoping we get a few sponsors too , we have a couple grants we are working on too.
I know we are going to compete at Kansas, new Mexico and San Antonio for sure, probably a coupe others too.
we have been in touch with them, but im not sure of any of the details.

Thanks for the help!

We had an open shoot here yesterday,
there was a bunch of local people and the OSU shotgun team came down and shot.
I was really happy with the way I shot,
it was my first time to shoot trap and I ended up placing 2nd in the men's division.
