Skeet Shooting Tips – Station 2 – by ShotKam

When you're stepping into skeet station 2, set up with your feet in the back left-hand corner of the box and with your hips facing the low house. This is going to be your foot positioning
for every shot in this station. Once you're comfortable in the box, let's
address your hold-point. The most common reason for missing high 2
is because the shooter has a hold-point that is too high and the barrel gets in the way
of their vision.

You want your hold-point to be level with
the bottom of the window. No higher, and about 20 feet out. When we look at the ShotKam footage, you'll
see that the move starts under the clay and comes up to the target line. This is what you'll want to look for in every
video. Now that your foot position and hold-point
are established, the next concern is where to look for this target. In order to avoid excessive eye movement, you
should look just off to the left of the barrel and trust your peripheral vision to pick up
the clay as it emerges from the window.

From the ShotKam's perspective, my eyes are about "here." Once confident and relaxed, call for the bird. As the target approaches your barrel, focus
on the clay and move with sustained lead, then pull the trigger. The camera's crosshair represents the bead
of your gun, so you can see the steady mount and move. For station 2 low house, your foot positioning
will be the same as with the high house target with your feet in the back left-hand corner
and your hips facing the low house window. Your hold-point should be about 10 feet out
and level with the bottom of the window. When you look at your ShotKam video, check
that your point-of-aim is not too high.
