Established in 1906 the Oklahoma Trap Shooting Association strives to have a safe and friendly atmosphere for all ages interested in this sport. Literally surviving the May 31, 2013 tornado which occurred during the 2013 Oklahoma State Trap Shoot, this club is dedicated to the survivor. The clubhouse was totally demolished along with numerous RV's and campers, Thankfully, there were no injuries or deaths, but a new club had to emerge. Since the ground breaking near Lake Hefner in 1906 where the first Oklahoma Trap grounds were until today near El Reno, determined leaders with the "survivor" attitude assure the club continues to provide a place to enjoy clay target sports in a modern-day setting.
Our first priority is safety, so we encourage all visitors to read the Safety Rules. For your convenience, you can purchase shot gun shells in the clubhouse. There ear plugs and eye protectors for loan as needed.
Home of the Oklahoma State Trap Shoot, OTSA also hosts youth state shoots for Academics Integrity and Marksmanship (AIM) and 4-H Club shooters. In addition, several Amateur Trap Association (ATA) shoots will be held this year including our special Red Earth Shoot hosted each fall.
We now include a new format of registered shooting called "Big 50's." In a regular ATA shoot, the program includes at least 100 singles, 100 handicap and 100 doubles targets on the program. Targets are logged and sent to the ATA for recording on each shooter, averages determined, number of wins, etc. for the target year. In the "Big 50's" shooters can shoot 50 targets in each event and receive credit for half the number of targets. Please check the current Registered Shoots page for dates and detailed information.
Our survivor club is a prime example that good things can come from bad happenings when the 2013 devastating tornado struck. Now we boast of a new air-conditioned range house built in 2014 with plenty of space for meetings, a family member hang out and definitely a place to rest and relax. There are cold drinks and snacks available. During the State Shoot and other major events, food trailers and fundraiser lunches will be available.
We have 30 campsites with water and electric hookup included limited 50 amp and 30 amp. Pets are welcome, and we have a nice walking trail available.
