Focus on the Target: The “Mainest Thing” About Shotgun Shooting
Whether you are a clays or wing shooter, none of us start with the same game we end up with. What we do and what we see is an evolution based on how much we practice our passion with the smooth bore.
As my late friend and client, Boone and Crockett Club measurer Homer Saye said many times: “The most mainest thing about shotgun shooting is focus on the target!”
Now you must understand that Homer was a big game hunter. He loved to shoot hand-thrown pigeons and got really good at it. But he put in the time and saw Gil on a regular basis, and he got his son Conner involved in shooting a shotgun.
On the surface, shooting a rifle and shooting a shotgun seem similar. But believe us when we tell you they are anything but.
