Re: Trap Shooting Tips
Most of the kids that I work with in our youth trap shoots have the same problems that most adults have, they do not follow through on the shots and they always shoot just behind the target. The place where these kids used to shoot before I put a trap range in at my house had an old man that would yell and cuss at them when they missed a target and also do the same if they just got a chip off of a target. He is the main reason that I put my range in. A hit is a hit in trap but if you can show these kids that they are getting a piece off of the right side of a hard left target then they will see that they are hitting behind the rock with most of their shot. I praise these kids on any hits that they get but still use it to show them what they are doing. We have one kid that is just 9 years old and when he first shot with us this past April he was getting 5 and 6 out of 25. Four months later and he is now 16 out of 25.
