GameKeeper Dove Hunting Tips: Why People Miss

The number one reason why most people miss is by shooting behind the target. The advice my dad gave me as a young man is to shoot where they are going and not where they have been. With the “swing through” method you swing with and through the bird. As soon as you see daylight between your barrel and the bird you want to pull the trigger but do not stop your gun. Your swing has to keep going forward after you pull the trigger. If you slow down, the bird doesn’t. As soon as you start to slow down a little bit you are behind. Always be in front of the bird. Rarely have I ever seen anybody miss a bird by shooting too far in front of them. Going to a good shooting facility and practicing will always enhance your ability to shoot a flying bird. Remember to practice all year long not just a week before the season opener.

BECOMING A GAMEKEEPER IS NOT JUST THE BEST WAY TO PRODUCE GREAT HUNTING… IT’S THE BEST LIFE!
