You can assume all kinds of stances in trap and still shoot very good scores, because the angles are gentle and the shots are easy. It's as much a test of consistency, mental endurance and focus as it is of shooting skill. That doesn't mean trap isn't good wingshooting practice. It sharpens eye-hand coordination and gun pointing, and it teaches you to keep your head on the stock, no matter how tightly or loosely you hold the gun. There's value, too, in learning to expect to make every shot you take, which is the mentality of a good trap shooter. ATA hall-of-famer Kay Ohye told me once: "If you and I go quail hunting and we each shoot four birds with six shots, you'll think you had a pretty good day. I'll think, I missed two shots."
