Learning to Wing Shoot - Single Targets
In order to become an accomplished upland and waterfowl hunter you must first master the use of a shotgun on moving game. While this sounds easy it offers the hunter a real challenge, not only must you quickly locate and identify the target; you must also either master the “swing” of the shotgun or accurately estimate both distance and speed of the target.
In this series of small “lessons” we will take you through the stages to becoming a good wing shot. You will need a good shotgun, preferably the same gun you will hunt with, some scrap lumber, shells (preferably light target loads), and several rolls of large paper, preferably white.
These lessons are the foundation of wing shooting, so take plenty of time with them and do not expect to accomplish everything in one day. Twenty-five shots are enough for one practice, since among other things you must develop your tolerance to recoil, and not overtax your muscles, resulting in a flinch.
Remember that more than half the people who go afield never learn to shoot, and a large share of the others spend the remainder of their shooting days trying to eradicate the bad habits acquired early in their youth.
