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

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

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.

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.
