Sporting Gun - - Instruction Taking High Birds - Jan­uary 2019

High driven tar­gets that are just off the cen­tre line can eas­ily catch you out. Try us­ing your shoul­ders to move the gun on the same line as the bird is trav­el­ling on by keep­ing the bar­rels in line. This can also be use­ful if tar­gets are curl­ing in the wind — just drop a shoul­der and curl with the tar­get. If it is too far to lean then ad­just your feet and take it as a crosser.

Gra­ham Watkins runs Game­goer Gundogs and has been train­ing gundogs pro­fes­sion­ally for more than 35 years. He has com­peted in Field Tri­als and work­ing tests, with sev­eral dogs achiev­ing Cham­pion and Win­ner ti­tles.
