REALISM ON THE RANGE

BECOME A BETTER SHOT BY PRACTICING REAL SHOOTING SCENARIOS

Here is the scenario: For the past two weeks you have been out scouting for that great deer or turkey location and you finally found that perfect spot. You decide that this is where you will hunt. It is still dark when you make your way into the location. At first light you can’t believe your eyes; a nice four-pointer steps out into the open, only 100 yards away. You fumble a bit as you bring your rifle to your shoulder; your breathing is labored. You waste precious seconds as you mess around with the safety. Your jerky movements alert the deer and it takes a step. Your heart is pounding and your breathing is still not under control. You rush the shot, shooting just under the deer and, just like that, your opportunity is lost.

Jake Bowen, the owner of Manchester Firing Line, advocates the concept of “aim small; miss small,” which suggests that you’ll become a better shot if you practice shooting at smaller targets.
Since you don’t know when opportunities will arise in the Field, it is good practice to shoot from different positions when you’re at the range.
