    I had a book years ago, about the mental part of Trap Shooting, an have lost it. I recall it was wrote by one of the top shooters but, can't recall who it was.

    Anyone have a lead on it or know of another good one?

    Thanks,

    KRE

    Might it have been Mental Training for the Shotgun Sports by Dr. Michael J. Keyes?

    KRE- Are you referring to the book that had a well written chapter about memory? If you lost such a book, that chapter must not have been very good.

    Carol,

    I don't recall that as being the title, but I'll sure get a copy an read it as well, thank you very much.

    Pat,

    It had nothing to do with memory as I recall but if it was there in print, age has erased those pages,LOL.
    I want to say it was more about the train of thought, that leads up to a shooter knowing they were going to lose the next bird, before it left the house. Which is where I have always beat myself. I had bought the book while shooting the Dollar in the late 70's and it took me to the State Cap shoot off in the early 80's. I lost that one, not from the book, but from not seeing (long story)the first shootoff bird at all.

    Lanny Bassham has some good books dealing with mental management. With Winning In Mind is one of them. HMB
