    Need to Hire a clay launcher, Manawatu area

    Hey team,

    Looking to hire a clay launcher, the closer to Palmerston North the better but can travel a ways to pick up and drop off.

    If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers
    Mike

    Have you tried hunting and fishing? The Blenheim store has one they hire out might be the same up your way.

    On a clever move, the Palmy branch has sold their launchers, old mate reckoned during a trap ammo shortage they thought they better sell the launchers

    I have a single shot trap if you can’t find one nearer

    Interesting set ups here, I like that trailerised set up, might need some more photos of that @muzza

    Will try the local clubs and see how I get on. Good thinking @rexb
