Doogie,

Not a stupid question at all. It usually depends on how many people in your party. There aren't many courses left that I shoot, where you have a trapper. Anyway My crew would usually go $5.00 per man, if the trapper was really working hard for us, we may even go as high as $10.00.

Introduce a kid to the outdoors.It's addictive.

Yeah I would say $5 per person sounds about right.

I am cheap, we usually tip the trapper around $2 - $3 bucks per person. Unless we know that he is only working for tips then we give them more.

As an instructor and trapper I would say 5 dollars a head is fine, however it depends on you. If the trapper is giving you a lesson obviously its different or if you are shooting multiple rounds.

I usually tip the trapper $5.00. Where I shoot it is usually teenagers looking to make some money. They appreciate the tips and they do a real good job

That's why I like trap and skeet, no need to tip anybody. The crew reloads the houses after the round!

Or you can go to a SC place that lets you throw your own. Don't have a lot of experience with either of them, but I know what I like and I don't like the SC places where someone leads youthrough the course and throws for you.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
