In Newfoundland, shooters at the St. John's Rod and Gun Club are patiently waiting for spring and warmer temperatures for the start to their 2021 trapshooting season. Two weeks of RDF (rain, drizzle and fog)  have delayed the start of the trapshooting season on the east coast of Newfoundland but a shift in the weather is looking possible for this weekend.
