Another aid in successful trap shooting is to stop the aperture down a bit so is the subject is not a flat plane parallel to the focal plane. That increases the field depth so if the desired focus point comes into range after a leading edge at another focal plane is locked onto. For example if it was a person walking parallel to the focal plane and is swinging their arms in a natural gate, their far arm would trigger the shutter before the face or body closer to the camera would in focus. So calculate the Dof needed to assure the whole subject would be in focus if any part was able to trigger the shutter.
