Montana State Trapshooting tournament begins Wednesday in Great Falls By Tom Wylie – July 10, 2018 0

GREAT FALLS — The state trap shooting tournament begins Wednesday morning in Great Falls, but Tuesday at the range shooting range just south of Ulm, they let a few amateurs take their best shots.

Members of the KRTV and KXLH news team were given guns and turned lose on some clay pigeons at media day to varying degrees of success. But come Wednesday morning nearly 400 of the state’s best shooters will begin the annual competition which returns to Great Falls on a four year rotation with Billings, Missoula and Helena. Spectators are welcome to come watch, and Great Falls Trap and Skeet club president Mike Houseman says the draw of a trap shooting competition goes a lot further than just hitting target.
