The most important part of the game is vision. From the moment the target comes out, through pulling the trigger, we MUST remain visually connected to the target. Really looking at the target in detail is crucial. Rings, a shiny spot, shadows, color contrast, are all items we see when we are truly focused on the target. See the target through the trigger pull and the recoil of the shot. Follow all the way through the shot with the eyes, see the target break. Sporting clays is a staring competition. The person who stares at the target the best for each shot often wins. After every shot you should ask yourself “Did I see the target as well as I could have?” Learn to put the gun where you want without looking at the gun. Always keep your eyes on the target.
