Here is a general concept that I have (this will create some comments! )
Great post OP.
I recently figured out (i think anyways) that shallow climbers are easy to shoot over. I guess it's a function of by the time my finger received the signal to pull the trigger the clay has peaked and is starting to fall. Ran into this on a station at Pintail last weekend. Cost me a win in B class.
How true that is for me, especially after practicing some actually long or faster targets. I'll start missing something quartering or a crossing midi, and a friend will say "you're way in front of that".Another note - When I miss, don't double lead......cut it back
Knowing where I missed is generally somewhat helpful to me and I can figure it out on my own. But knowing why I missed takes more time and often requires outside help from someone more knowledgeable than my shooting buddies. The offer from Mike McAlpine is amazing.After years of shooting, trapping at larger shoots over time. I'm my own coach, most of the time I can diagnose my shot. Watching people shoot, I can see majority if missed where it was...
MikeI will be doing a book on all methods in my new book "Youth Coach the Future of Our Sport." This book will be dedicated to Jim Porter. Jim was a Level III student of mine many years ago. He had, I believe muscular Dystrophy or MD. Jim was finally confined to a wheelchair but He was still able to teach and created one of the best youth programs in the country. He was also elected to the NSCA HOF a few years ago. I always was always very proud of Jim and even a little envious of him. The student made the HOF but the teacher never did and probably never will. LOL (I know I probably misspelled Dystrohy) sometimes I can't get close enough for spellcheck to fix it..LOL)
Don, Please had some more of Jim's accomplishments!!!!!!!
