    If your going to miss the bird do so by shooting in front of it, not behind it.
    Advice from a Olympian.

    It's much easier to miss behind than miss in front. Hap

    During practice I have actually tried to shoot too far in front of angled targets. It can be done but it is not easy.

    I think it is quite easy to shoot too far in front, you don't get a blue ribbon for doing it either, it's still LOST!

    The chance of a target flying into your shot string are not very good. A target flying at 50 mph is going 73.33 ft per second. If your shot string is going 1000 feet per second the odds of a target going 73.33 feet per second running into the shot string are not very good.

    An old trapshooter once told me' "shoot the nose off hard left's and right's and you'll never miss those birds."

    Very easy to do if you are a fast shooter with a fast swing--most really fast shooters shoot right at the target with no or very little visible lead--you try shooting really fast like that AND try to see a little lead and you'll easily shoot too far in front---I hadn't shot any skeet in a while and for some reason when I did I wanted to see a little lead at some of the targets--took me forever to figure out I was shooting in front of them.
