    Ok. What is the penalty for shooting ahead of your yardage?
    Ex a 25 yard shooter accedently shoots(and breaks) one bird from 24.
    What if he didnt break it?
    Is there a penalty or is it a do over from the proper yardage?

    Targets shot at the wrong yardage can be corrected. You have to reshoot any targets you broke, and anything you miss stays a miss.

    After the round it's a DQ, but discovery during the round is correctable.

    Scott hit it right on the head.

    SECTION VII
    OFFICIAL SCORING

    E. NO TARGET

    10. When firing, the contestant’s feet must be behind the firing mark
    at 16-yards, or behind the mark for the Handicap yardage assigned to
    him/her, depending upon the event being participated in...If a
    contestant fails to follow this rule in its entirety, the referee/scorer shall
    rule any target fired at and broken a “NO TARGET,” but if fired at and
    missed, the referee/scorer shall rule the target “LOST.” For example,
    targets shot at and broken from the wrong yardage marker must be
    shot over, targets shot at from the wrong yardage marker and missed
    will be scored “LOST.”

    In the example you listed, the shooter would be allowed to shoot the target over since he broke it.
