Anthony,
Last weekend at the commonwealth cup (Shenandale Gun Club) in VA there was a station that just about ate everyone's lunch, including mine. Report pair, steep downhill (below the stand)and the targets were more or less mirror images of each other. Trap on the left, in the bushes. Target came out in a loop, more like a rainbow instead of McD's arch. Approx 10 o'clock from the shooter, quartering, going away , landing about 2 o'clock. The right to left about the same in the other direction (2 - 10). The traps were about 30 - 35 yards from the stand and the target hit the ground about 45 yards away. Hope this description is decipherable. What is the preferred way to shoot this.
Thanks,
Phil Smith

It sounds like you needed to pre-mount and shoot this like a trap style target. The front edge sounds like to was the top right edge of the clay and top left edge of the clay. You more than likely needed to see the target coming under the barrel and shoot it quickly while staying on top of the target.
