Landt Farms Course Rules


  • No alcohol allowed on the course !
  • Guns are to be broken or breeches open until you have stepped into the shooting cage.
  • When carrying an over/under over your shoulder put the barrel down your chest and the stock over your shoulder, not the opposite.
  • Guns may not be loaded until the shooter is in the shooting cage, with the barrel extended over the front rail.
  • Always keep your gun pointed down range in a safe direction.
  • Load only 2 shells at a time. Do not move from station to station with a shell in any part of the gun.
  • If there is a gun malfunction deal with it in the shooting cage with the gun pointed downrange.
  • No smoking on the course.
  • Only 1 person may shoot at a time.
  • No back-up shooting.
  • Each squad or group may preview 1 set of targets at each station.
  • No shooting at live birds (or other animals) while on the course.
  • If 2 targets are hit by a single shot, both are considered broken.
  • To "break" a target, a visible piece must be broken from the target.
  • A shooter may shoot at a broken target, but in so doing, is accepting it as a legal target.
  • In the event a target is thrown broken during the sequence, the entire sequence must be shot over. If it's the second bird that comes out broken; the first target is "established" as it was shot (either lost or dead). If the pair is thrown as a "true" pair (both birds flying at the same time), nothing is established.
  • If the shooter experiences a malfunction for any reason, the target or sequence is considered lost. In tournament (NSCA) play, each shooter has 3 total malfunctions before he/she loses targets.
  • In the event of a misfire or weak report, always check your barrel for obstructions.
  • Eye and ear protection should be used by all shooters and spectators at all times.
  • No children are allowed on the course unless accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Always stay clear of target windows and trap machines.
  • Shot size is limited to 7-1/2, 8 or 9.
  • Be courteous and observant of others on the range and show your sportsmanship at all times.
  • Exercise due caution in picking up fired cases. Retrieve only your own as others may want theirs also.
