Missing too many birds lately? Let our wingshooting primer get you back in the game
#4 MAKING THE SHOT
When shooting, keep both eyes open and focus on the bird, not on your barrel or bead. Remember, this an exercise in pointing, not aiming. When you feel you have the correct lead, pull the trigger and concentrate on following through by continuing to swing. Not enough follow-through is one of the main reasons hunters shoot behind targets, even when their lead was perfect. Insufficient follow-through can also contribute to a host of other problems when, after successive misses, you start adjusting your form.
