OK folks, here is one for the holiday weekend...What has been the single best tip or piece of advice you have ever received on trap shooting? It may have come from a coach, a parent, an older shooter, a professional shooter, a book, a video....let us know. But tell us the one thing you learned that helped you break more targets than any other. Think it over!!!!!
Merry Christmas and may 2010 be your best year ever! Jack Farrow (Martinpicker)
p.s. Please don't refer to Christmas as Xmas...think about what you are doing.

Put into your mind -- "I've broken every target presentation that this machine can throw me (Hundreds of times)-- now, relax, and shoot each target one at a time!"

ONE AT A TIME...

Know what the target presentation will be from each station and how to lead each presentation before saying "pull".

Look into a mirror after you mis a target. The person you see is the reason you missed. It's only a head game.

When I started shooting at age 13 may father told me "just keep shooting and one of these days it will all click". A couple of summers later he was right.

The game of trap is all about persistence. Even if you have bad technique or a bad mental game, you'll eventually figure out how consistently break high scores.

Don't ever pick up your hulls around Skeeters. Just leave them on the ground. Simply aint worth the risk.

Years ago I asked an ole' codger what was the best advise he could give me on how I could get better. His answer... "Start Younger".

When I was a kid I asked an old timer what he did to shoot so well. He said "what's so hard about hitting something so small with something so big" I asked him what he meant and he said that he was refering to the size of the target in relation to the size of the pattern. It really wasn't a tip but it sure did put things into perspective. Merry Christmas to all!!

Don't move the gun until you see the target. But after many people told me that I was doing it, it took Dave Shaeffer to prove that I was doing it, because I didn't believe that it was happening.

From Bud Decot ----- when you think about playing the money, take your money out of your wallet -- fold it once --- put it back into your wallet -- the best way to double your money shooting trap.

He also said you should have a job to make money and shoot trap to have fun.

Both are as true now as they were then.


If you ever talked to Bud more than once the 3rd time he'd remember your name and I miss him at the big shoots.
