Trap Shooters Aim for Success

Posted: Updated:

Trap Shooting enthusiasts are aiming for another successful competition.

The North Dakota State Annual Trap Shooting Competition is underway.

Capital City Gun Club in Bismarck is hosting the event and today was strictly a youth competition.

Even though this sport may trigger the assumption that it's for guys and their guns only,

girls are starting to take over.

"We have quite a few girls involved like up in Minot, I have over 20 girls involved in our program up there and we encourage more of the girls to come out too and I have some of the girls that can whoop the pants off of some of the boys out there," says Bill Niemann, Director, Minot Youth Trap Shooting Club.

Niemann also says it's a great family sport and it's grown over the years.

In the past, they had 10-12 squads.

This year, there's 21 focused young squads ready to hit their target.

"It's like any sport. It's a mind game. It's all in your mind. You go out there and have your mind set on where you're shooting and what you're supposed to be doing all the time and you kind of block out everything happening behind you and everything and it goes good for you, you know," says Niemann.

The trap shooting competition in Bismarck began today and goes through the 28th of July.
