    Also known as Olympic Trap or Bunker, the International Trap game consists of a ground level, 60 foot long trench that houses 15 trap machines - three in front of each of five shooting positions. These machines do not oscillate, but are preset for angles up to 45 degrees left and right and heights at 10 meters in front of the trench, varying from 1.5 meters to 3.5 meters.  All targets travel to 76 meters and are offered at different speeds increasing difficulty.
