What is a Wobble Trap?

Wobble Trap is a fairly new and exciting shotgun sport at our club. Five shooting stations are provided. Each shooter is allowed five shots from each station. The main difference from regular trap shooting is the trap machine oscillates up and down as well as side to side. This randomly gives the shooter extreme highs, lows and side to side target presentations.
