I'm a newbie to trap shooing so I need all the help I can get. Where do you aim? How do you aim? Any internet information out there?

with shotguns you don not aim, you just point.  keep the gun moving and pull the trigger, no "aiming" with a shotgun in clay sports.

Point the shotgun right at the moving target, below or above? Where should the bead be pointed at?

you need to watch a bunch of YouTube videos.  forget about the bead it is not used.  watch a bunch  of videos, there are many.

leading edge of the bird, focus on keeping your cheek on the stock, and not lifting your head after you fire. rock on the stock. keeping both eyes open is the next step after that

All good advice here.   Except none of it works for me.    Eye dominance issues for me.    I wear a lens cover on the left lens of my glasses.    
first I start low on the trap house bring the gun up so I can stack the beads.  The bead in the middle of the barrel is just below the front bead and then put the bird just above the front bead.  


I shot a 25 tonight.  my average is 22.
