MAIN Man Pulling Wheelybird 3.0

Champion Traps & Targets has announced its Wheelybird 3.0 Auto-Feed Trap, designed to provide hours of fun and skill-building to beginners and experienced shooters alike.

“The new Wheelybird 3.0 builds off the tried-and-true designs of previous Champion throwers and packs plenty of features for both casual and dedicated shotgun shooters,” said Laurie Kokoruda, product manager for Champion Range & Targets. “Anyone looking for a durable yet lightweight automatic thrower, will surely be impressed with the speed and convenience of the Wheelybird 3.0.”

Wheelybird 3.0 Back and Front

Now available for purchase, the Wheelybird 3.0 features a detachable stack holder that holds 60 clays at a time. Pair that with a rapid 1.5-second cycle time and shooters can target more birds in a shorter time than ever. The thrower also boasts a range of up to 70 yards plus angle adjustments of 0-30 degrees.

Wheelybird 3.0 controls

Whether going out to the range solo or with a friend, the Wheelybird 3.0 gives options with both its 25-foot corded pedal and the Wheelybird Wireless Remote (sold separately), meaning clays can be launched with the click of a button. Transporting the Wheelybird 3.0 to and from the range is simple, thanks to the thrower’s wide-base wheels, battery cart storage and built-in cord wrap. The integrated battery storage is a boon in particular, as it prevents the shooter from having to haul a heavy battery in a separate trip.

Hunters preparing for wingshooting or simply looking for a fun way to spend the offseason should find great utility in the WheelyBird 3.0. Apart from its excellent clay-shooting features, the wheeled portability of the entire unit makes it easy to either simply drag out to the front field, or load into the truck for a day at the club.
