I heard some hunters say that clay shooting is not bénifique to hunters, that on the contrary it makes them worse. how to explain to these people that it is rather the opposite. thank you

I don’t explain it to them. If they don’t practice with their guns at clays during the off season, then they will simply be leaving more birds for me to hunt. And that’s a good thing. The more you shoot your shotgun, no matter what it is at, the better shot you will be. I find that skeet shooting with a low gun is extremely helpful for upland bird hunting. For driven shooting, many sporting clays shots can be quite helpful. And just handling your gun several times a week during the off season is good.
That said, I don’t think that shooting clays pre-mounted is as helpful for bird hunting as shooting low gun. Also, practicing at clays with your hunting gun is better than using your target gun–if the goal is to improve your field shooting.
