Six Steps to Winning Skeet

1. CORRECT FOOT POSITION – This will enable you to swing on the target without losing your balance or running out of swing.

2. GUN HOLD OR WHERE TO POINT THE BARREL BEFORE YOU CALL FOR THE TARGET – This will enable you to pick up the target quicker and shoot it with a minimum of swing.

3. WHERE TO FOCUS YOUR EYES – Where to look when calling for the target to enable you to see it faster.

4. KNOW WHERE YOU WANT TO BREAK THE TARGET – You must have an idea of where to break the target to be able to perform steps 1, 2, and 3.

5. VISUALIZE HOW MUCH LEAD IS NEEDED TO BREAK THE TARGET – Tell yourself how much lead is needed to shoot the target and mentally see it break before you call for it.

6. BE LOUD AND FIRM WHEN CALLING FOR THE TARGET – Call for the target in a loud firm voice. When doing so, make sure you’re mentally alert and physically relaxed.
