Bad, bad, bad, today on a quartering incomer described as follows:

trap is at 2 o'clock and the tgt. is going to 8 o'clock with about 50 yds. total distance from plate to the ground. Max. height is about 3 1/2 ft.

The tgt. hits the ground about 12 yds. out and 5 yds. to the left of the stand. Coming off the plate the target is hard to see partially covered by a tree but breaks into the clear about 25 yds. off the plate. It's slowing down considerably after the 25 yds. and is now in transition as it curls down and into you.

5 hits out of a box. Can you step in here Anthony and offer a suggestion? A shooting buddy who had no trouble with it said afterwards, shoot it at 25 yds. off the plate coming from under it and right at it. Very little gun movement, more of a spot shot.

If the trap is at 2 O'clock and the target is going to 8 O'clock, I would consider that more of a crosser with just a little incoming component. What distance were you trying to shoot the bird? Were you trying to give it any sort of lead? If so, where and how much? Also, what choke were you using?

If you were shooting the target late, there's a good chance, IMO, that you were shooting behind it. The reason being that on incoming crossers like you describe, the closer you let the target get to you, the more it turns into a pure crosser, and crossers require some lead. Also, of course, the target is dropping so you need to be under it.

I agree with Ulysses; it depends where you're shooting it. The more it comes in, the faster your gun has to move.

I'd only add that at 3 1/2 feet off the ground, you'll also want to make sure you're not shooting over it.

Kill it where you see it the best... if it’s not that far insert on the back edge. For low incoming targets many shooters (myself) need some muzzle awareness.

Thanks Anthony.

I see this target the best, and it's difficult to see as it moves along it's flight path, but when it's about 15 yds. from the stand and 2' off the ground it's big. Guess I should have positioned my body/feet to use that as my breakpoint and used a spreader. The target setter got me on this one.
