Here are some examples of my less than stellar wingshooting.







Cannot wait to get back out there and start missing again this fall!


And why, today, remember misses?

Just a possibility -------- different shells have different velocities,,, hence you need to use the same shells all the time, year after year. Some hunters switch shells often and miss most of the time.

Ha ha ha, those misses have a way of burning into the gray matter, never to be forgotten by your hunting buddies.

go shoot a round of sporting clays with a buddy that knows what he is doing or a instructor - it will help iron out any problems

I had to lose all my self taught shotgun gun shooting problems. before i started shooting well in sporting clays

Shoot with someone that can tell you what to fix !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
