    I am over analyzing skeet shooting again guys, and I'm missing clays like crazy. Help me out. Get me back to basics: Stance, proper shells, proper sight, everything! Thanks for the help

    My issue has always been follow through which results in shooting behind the bird. If I do, I will be in the 21-25 range. If not, a sad day of shooting will result.

      Take an athletic stance, start with the bird and follow through, DO NOT LOOK AT THE BEAD ON YOUR SHOTGUN (try to see the rings on the disc), SLAP the trigger, continue the follow-through.
      DSM's coaching is good. I would add, do not think about a miss EVER. Once it is done it is done. Concentrate on "seeing" every shot before you take it.

        Try the new Winchester shells with the visible TrAAcker wad - visible wad comes in black of blaze orange. Shows you where the shot went.

          mount you gun with the barrel on the plain of the bird about 4 to 6 feet in front of where you first see it.

            DRY FIRING at stationary targets is one of the best techniques for improving accuracy,it also works on skeet ,trap and sporting clays.This is easily seen on skeet doubles,and station 9 when it seems like time is at a faster pace. Relax, theres plenty of time to make these shots,watching vetran shooters break these birds making it look easy is from repetetive skills developed over experience.DSM is correct , no one has ever broke a bird shooting behind them.When you think you have given enough lead,give it some more ,keeping your swing level with follow thru,and your check against the stock.Champion shooters aren't born over night,practice is a must, putting pressure on your self is a sure way to become frustrated ,have fun stay loose. Visualise what you want to do before you step up to the station,then do it. As a former N.S.S.A referee and shooter myself,good basics and attitude go a long way.
