    I'm hoping for all positive input. So I would like comments from former students, and, or established trapshooters, as to which active instructor, in your opinion, has the best shooting philosophy today,---not necessarily to be based on shooting achievements of each instructor.

    Southpaw Sam,

    I believe Harlan Campbell's philosophy that "Shooting better is a choice and that choice is yours" sums up the theory, the harder you work at something the better you will get at it.

    I hope this is what you are asking about.

    Working hard doesn't always get it. You have to work smart as well.
    Are a good number of talented shooters shooting well because of good methods or inspite of them?

    The art of passing along knowledge that truly benefits another takes much more than being capable of doing it himself. Some are proved "doer's, some are proved teachers as well. Good luck in your search.

    Leo once said, "I don't care what choke you shoot, as long as the word FULL is in it."

    Each of the top coaches have good shooting philosophies...that's why they are good in the first place. You can learn something from each one.

    You will naturally gravitate toward one whose personality, philosophy, and style best serve your way of learning, though. Everyone is different.

    Even when you don't see the bird, you break the bird. That's much better, don't you think. HMB

    Once all the fundamentals are solid, the movement and firing should be pure instinct. Don't think, just let your natural reflexes do the work.
