Careful mate…we don’t want Milky’s head to swell too much…but yep, he is a damn fine hunter. I only wish I had his stamina and physical abilities in the bush…especially on the hills.

Fair enough mate…but how in blue blazes did you miss at 50 yards?

took it too cheaply and rifle was not sighted in...somehow.... 4" to right meant it zipped clean past the neck I was aiming at.

Yes, I know the feeling. When you think it's too easy and you don't concentrate it usually ends with a lot of cursing, even sleepless nights...

funny thing is that when you do the same shot just reacting without aiming, it'soften spot on. I think we learn that when using the shotgun... with a shotgun we often miss when we do aim at the target...

when everything should be very easy, everybody could do the trick (and most of the fun would be gone)

It’s not hard to miss when you haven’t sighted your rifle in and zeroed the sights. But, as Aloys says, if you use it like a shotgun and just point, you won’t be too far off the money.

I found it rather difficult to not “aim” my shotgun when I first started shooting clays…so many years of pistol and rifle shooting…but I eventually got the knack of keeping the shotgun on the move and ultimately claiming more targets.
