Re: What do you see when you shoot?
Let me help you just a little, 1st your double gun must fit you correctly both cast and drop, and you must know how your gun patterns. Then you must learn to set up correctly as you approach your dogs point. Learning to walk the woods or fields and set up for actual bird gunning is not like shooting trap or skeet. If you shoot clays for practice, start gun down safe on, and have the puller launch at will, then you have a more realistic practice for actual bird gunning.
3rd you must learn to remove your safe and mount your gun in one smooth flawless action, it becomes instinctive after a while. You should shoot with both eyes open, concentrating on the bird, you must always lead the bird
as you shoot, so the bird flies into your shot pattern. Learn the correct way to shoot a rising or falling bird, there is a difference. In reality when Grouse hunting you have 3 tenths of a Second before a mature Grouse puts something between your gun and him. Setting up properly to gun the bird is a learned operation for a human, there are really few instinctive gunners.
If you are up this way in December pay me a visit and I will help you out.
Never care about what other people believe, be strong and walk in the way of the Lord.
