Station 3 trap. House is locked up for a straight away. Not a very technical target at all haha. I find I have about a 9/10 proficiency on this target. Can you walk me through your approach to this target.

Good question. The target that you describe is one of the most important on the course due to the frequency at which it is presented.

I suggest shooting this target with a fully pre-mounted gun. The key to all pre-mounted shots is your hold point and position of your eyes to see around the gun. Use the background / landscape to mark the exact line. Hold on line with your hold point down 1/3 to 1/2 was from the breakpoint toward the trap. Hold low enough so you can move on the flash and not be waiting, but high enough that your are not beat or rushed. You need to look under the gun to see the target coming to do this you need to look below the barrel and past the trap and into the distance. You need to get the eyes to go around the gun and create a ghost barrel. When shooting the target the target will only be very clear if the target is slow. On faster targets you may not see the target detail perfectly clear as there is not that much time and you are seeing the target around or through the gun.

If the shooter is using a dot this is much harder to accomplish and they may need to shoot it with a "soft-premount" where the head is not down full down on the stock.

If the target is very steep more like a trap-teal the safe "soft-premount" might be necessary.

I realize this post isn't very recent, but for clarity Anthony, does the bird ever rise above your barrel on a trap style shot?

In trap where you don't know where the target is going you will come from under the clay slightly.

If shooting with one eye or a dot it is harder to stay on top of the Clay
