What is Trap?  See the brief description below:

Description – There are a number of variations to the game of trap, but the most basic version involves up to 5 shooters, standing in a line.  The line consists of 5 stations, numbered 1 through 5 from left to right.  Clay targets are thrown from a single house that is located in front of the firing line.  Clays are thrown in a direction away from the shooter and a random amount of left or right variation is added to the flight of each target.  The lead or first shooter (the leftmost shooter) fires his first round.  Then the second shooter fires his first round.  Then the third shooter fires his first.  Etc. etc.  When all shooters have fired one round, the first shooter fires his second round.  The second shooter fires his second round.  The third shooter fires.  Etc. etc.  When all the shooters have fired 5 rounds, all shooters rotate by moving one station to the right.  If there was a shooter at station 5, that shooter rotates to station 1.  The process continues with all shooters firing 5 rounds in the same fashion at their second stations.  They then rotate once more.  Shooting and rotation continues until each shooter has fired 5 rounds at 5 stations, for a total of 25 targets.  Note, after each rotation, the shooting begins with the shooter who originally occupied station 1.
