Regardless of your abilities, there are always some basic things that will help you hit your mark whether it’s busting clays, upland game hunting or waterfowl hunting.
- First of all, practice mounting the gun until it comes to the shoulder in a smooth, automatic motion.
- Locate the target as quickly as possible and then concentrate on the target and point the gun-don’t aim it like a rifle.
- Shoot where the target will be, not where it is and provide proper lead for the speed of the target.
- Don’t stop the swing of your gun when you pull the trigger-continue to swing smoothly through the target.
Consistently hitting your target, be it clays, upland game or waterfowl, requires dedication and training, so practice, practice, practice!
