Often, the novice hunter asks a long series of questions to those accompanying him, whether I precede the bird and at what distance, do I shoot at the bird and then precede it and shoot, or do I put the gun behind it and move it to pass it and then precede it and shoot, do I shoot with one eye or with both, etc
The truth is that there is no answer, certain and agreed upon between snipers, or there is no right and wrong way, every hunter develops his abilities with time, experience and burning nerves before cartridges, but there are some facts that have been reached with much effort and study by specialized schools and experts, which are fortunately present on the Internet.
In the following, I provide a quick summary of one of the well-known methods that relies on instinct and instinct only, according to the following steps:
1. Correct standing:
Stand facing the expected line of passage of birds, the left foot forward if you are not left-handed and vice versa, and leave a comfortable room to move the upper body, leaning slightly forward.
2. Correct lifting of the gun:
This operation is very important although even some professional hunters do not pay attention to it, and a common mistake is to put the rifle on the shoulder or carry it with one hand, etc. The correct thing is to hold the gun in the firing position with one difference, which is to place the wood (Dabshak) under the armpit so that the left hand is on the front wood, with the front of it slightly raised forward… The payment process begins as follows:
- A Raise the front of the gun so that it is on the bird’s route and close to it.
- Lift the teddy to touch the cheek first and then the shoulder.
- C Move the gun with the bird … He fired without any delay or attempt to aim.
- D The duration of this process is the time required to prepare slowly from one to three (a lift, 2 move, 3 fire)
3. Focus on the bird:
Practice focusing on the bird, or more precisely on the bird’s head or directly in front of it, from the moment the gun is raised until shooting, and I say practice because this is not an easy task, as a person subconsciously tends to focus on the fixed object (the head of the gun) and not the moving (the bird), and so he enters into a desperate attempt to aim at the bird, and I say desperate because when you look at the front of the gun, the bird has preceded you, so you return to try to catch it, and so on. (Let the mighty computer given you by God Almighty run freely and quietly, and the shot will come where you focus without any effort.
4. Open your eyes:
Practice aiming with open eyes, which is also not an easy task for professional or old hunters because they are used to shooting with one eye, but it is easy for new hunters. There is no doubt that shooting with both eyes, better and more accurate, why? Because God Almighty created us with two eyes and one of them is stronger than the other (the dominant eye (eye dominant) and so we see things and the brain deals with them to estimate distance, speed and size and to decide the correct way to react, and to clarify this I point out that if we look at the bird with one eye we think that it is smaller, farther and slower.
5. Move the gun:
Place the gun anywhere close to the bird’s route, and keep moving it with it, never stop this movement even after shooting, continuing to move the gun with the bird’s route allows you to fire again if you miss the first. A common mistake is to try to aim or stop moving the gun at launch, and in both cases the result will be shooting behind the bird.
6. Forget the distance (precedence):
The new hunter often asks, do I shoot in front of the bird by half a meter or a meter or maybe 123 centimeters, and the answer, forget this whole topic, all that is required is to focus the look on the front of the bird and move the gun, and again leave it to what God Almighty has given you, and to indicate this I ask you, do you calculate the distance in centimeters when you pass your car between two cars or do you calculate the speed of cars when you enter from a side street to the highway, of course not, but you do it thanks to that The mighty computer inside you, and so is the hunt.
7 – Safety standards:
Always remember that fishing is a wonderful and sophisticated hobby, but it can be dangerous, so respect it and strictly apply safety standards, for example:
- Never leave the cartridge in the fire house, when leaving the field, resting or riding in the car.
- In no case do you aim the weapon at anyone, even if you are 199% sure it is empty.
- Do not stuff the gun with cartridges while it is aimed at anyone
