Assuming you can have range to practice stations. What is a good practice drill / drills
I saw one about shooting incomers Stations 1, 2,3, - 5, 6,7 Four times each station = 24

Saw a comment about this drill not so good for overall Skeet. I guess you just do same for out going

Shooting doubles on 3-4-5 seems like a good concise way to work on those

Need something that is good overall practice session within an hour to hour and half time frame

Takes 1 flat.
Put a box of shells on each station. Practice the whole box at each station, shooting mostly singles.
You'll have two boxes left at the end, run 2 rounds of skeet for score. The 2 rounds for score (among whatever other notes you may have) will be how you can evaluate how well you are progressing and where you may need to spend extra time (station, pairs, etc).

We shoot incomer outgoer, 4 hi, 4 low on 2-6. 2 & 2 on 1,7, 8. That should be 52.

Then triple doubles, 1-7 except 4 where its triple doubles high house first, then triple doubles low house first. That should be 48

Total of 100.

We try to mix them up. Income outgoer + triple doubles one session, 4 boxes of skeet by the rules next session.

That’s a lot of shells to shoot in 90 minutes.

It depends on the time of year, gauge, purpose (serious practice or casual skeet), and squad-mates.

I like to break a 25 straight before varying from standard rounds.

Now I would be inclined to just shoot two pairs of doubles at each station 1 to 7.

Two Highs and a Double at stations 1 and 2, and two Lows and Double at 6 is an easy enhancement.

Was there a 90 minute time limit established on this thread?

Some times I will shoot a "reverse round"
Start with L8, H8, L7 double, L7, H7 ... "
If you don't miss, then 2 at H1

Really makes you think about basics on each station. Foot position, hold points, looks points
It also makes practice seem fresh and a little different

I figured 90 minutes would be about the max I'd be able to focus . I could see a variation shooting 6 shells at each station then a round of 25 to see what's what. Rinse and repeat
Total of just under 6 boxes

the triple doubles sounds interesting. Good way to find a rhythm

Reverse may mess my brain up at this time. , later on I can see it would be refreshing switching things up

My normal practice routine is three rounds of regular skeet with doubles from 3-4-and 5 added in. Shoot three pay for four rounds.

I often shoot the international target sequence, which drops all the long incomers and adds doubles at 3, 4, and 5.

I like to do a different version using stations 2-6.
High 2 single followed by a report pair and then a true pair. repeat on stations 3&4.
On station 5 shoot a low single, then a report pair and then a true pair shooting the low bird first.
Repeat on station 6 for a total of 25 shots.
This really improves your shooting on all those crossing targets. Especially when you start from a low gun position like I prefer. I think of it as sporting skeet

Ultimately, you're going to find something that you like and hopefully works best for you.
The 'problem' with trap and/or skeet is you effectively have to run 100s if you get into competition via ATA or NSSA. Maybe not at every shoot, but the big ones you are going to need to. Proper and valuable practice is something you can research, but repetition is a key aspect, so get as many good reps in as possible!

OP said “hour to an hour and a half”.

Not a drill but read about Deliberate Practice, something all top athletes do.
