I was wondering about that. I don’t shoot skeet but I always thought it was those clays flying high in the air, so he should be aiming much higher than what is shown. Which looks like regular target practice.
If you don’t hit them on the way up you can try to hit them on the way down. However it doesn’t work well that way, Best to hit them on the way upor at their peak of rise.
Well, he's shooting at the clay target before it leaves the trap. It increases his chances of actually hitting something.
