Please do not take the title of this edition of Shooters Sunday too literally and shoot straight at the high tower, doing this tends to upset the ground owner as you are likely to scratch the paintwork on his traps, what I mean by “Shooting Straight at the High Tower” is developing a technique that will enable you to consistently hit high flying targets whether they are either inanimate Clays or live soaring Pheasants.
High targets can strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest and most experienced of shooters, the problem we all suffer from, is the mental “intimidation” we create by the way we exaggerate the height of the shot, by generally talking in “Imperial Feet” as opposed to Imperial Yards or Metric Meters, shooting a 120 Ft tower target sounds a lot more difficult than shooting a 40yd/37mt crossing one, which most of us have encountered and would not find too testing to hit.
So by starting with that thought in mind, you have already taken some of the fear and doubt away from shooting the High tower, especially when you also realize these targets will normally show a lot more of the “Underside” (belly) of the clay, giving you a bigger and better object to focus on and make contact with up in the sky. Already, hitting these once daunting targets is starting to sound “Easier”.
