EYES ON THE PRIZE

Scottish Field - - FIELD SPORTS -

As you swing the gun you must keep your cheek locked to the side of the stock. As with a golf drive, where you look up too early to see where the ball has gone, the most com­mon fault amongst shoot­ers is when you try to see whether you’ve hit the bird too early – when you do this your head will au­to­mat­i­cally come up off the gun and you’ll in­vari­ably miss be­hind. Sim­i­larly, you need to ac­cept that as you swing through to get ahead of the bird, there will be a mo­ment when your bar­rels will ob­scure the bird and you’ll lose sight of it – but do not bring your head off the gun in an at­tempt to keep sight of the bird.
