    The Overhead from Behind Target.

    This target pigeon shooters will know very well but of course you may not be able to get your feet quite right in time but the rest is the same.

    Again with your leading foot pointing to the kill point and your muzzle on line or straight out in front of you at around 60 degrees climb. Your head/eyes should be looking up even higher but maybe not quite straight up as its often too much.
    Call "PULL" and when the bird appears, start the mount and push the muzzles up under the bird/clay but don't let it overtake or even catch the muzzles/rib. Around a 2-3mm gap is perfect as it goes away and pull the trigger keeping the gun moving (Follow through.) Again don't take your focus off the target and the 60% rise in shot pattern will kill the target. Doing it this way you will never loose sight of the target behind the barrels.
    It's great on station 1 high house skeet.

    For some reason, this is one bird I can hit consistently 8 or 9 times out of 10.

    Me too - doing it exactly as you described I get a solid 8 or 9 out of 10! It just seems instinctive somehow.

    I've tried it the other way just to see what happens (muzzle above the bird, swinging down), but I just couldn't hit it at all.
