Just keep on like i've been telling you, pick a bird, focus, lead and bang, then splash, your getting better every trip, by the end of the season, you should be knocking them dead. Be the duck, nananananananananana

Dont think about your shots it should come naturally. Choose a duck swing the gun lead it and shoot.

Youll get it.

What type of choke and how far are the shots? If you are shooting a IC and trying to make 40 yd. shots that is why.

Could be an IC for lead and IM or Mod. with steel shot......steel always patterns tighter and I have seen a IC choke throw very tight patterns, all depends on the shell/choke combination.....all guns pattern differently.

Best thing i can think of is to practice as much as you can. Try not to think about it too much or try to focus too much on direct aiming but get near or around the bird then pull the shot off

You should never "aim" a shotgun.....if the gun has a proper fit, it should point where you look. It amazes me when I see people aiming their shotgun like a rifle when the are patterning it.......does absolutely no good. If the gun doesn't shoot where you look, the gun doesn't fit. I understand that some shotguns shoot high and some shoot strait, most of your trap guns will shoot a touch higher.
Proper patterning can reveal so much about a hunter and his shotgun......highly suggested. :thumbsup:

Butt Beak Bang. aim directly infront of the bird, and exhale before you shoot.

More experienced wingshooters tend to lead ducks too much. I don't "see" a lead, but I would imagine that inside of 30 yards, I shoot about their beak and 30-40, I might be about a half a foot or so in front of em.
I got a buddy that spot shoots ducks, he will pick a spot where the bird is going to be and shoots their......don't know how he does it but he is consistent. :thumbsup:

Rubber Ducky.

have you pattern your shotgun? Could be your pulling and not squeezing the trigger. When you yank on the trigger your anticipating the shot/ recoil of the gun. This tends to inconsistency either high or left right or behind. Control your breathing and follow through. By all means go and shoot some clay pigeons, in other words practice. :thumbsup: Hawk

Hawk,
You should pull the trigger on a shotgun.......sqeeeeeeeze on a rifle. Breathing is not a factor in shotgunning, however, flenching is.....have you ever pulled up on a duck or seen somone at a shooting range when they go to pull the trigger and they either have a dud or they forgot to take the safety off, 9 times outta 10, the flench. The only way to get good is to practice, practice and practice some more, spend some time at the range and you will start to get your form and lead down, might get you some instructional videos and shotgunning books and read up.

i don't use clay pigeons, they only go one direction at a consistent speed, i use quail and chukar season as my practice, doves will work too, by the time duck season opens, i am well tuned and it starts raining ducks.

My first year of duck hunting, it took about 3 boxes of shells to get a limit. The second, it took 2. One of my hunts in the 3rd season, it took only 13 shells for 6 ducks. Right now I average about 15 shells when I limit out. It takes a few years with not much practice, but if you shoot clay pigeons a lot or even a one time a month before a hunt it will greatly improve your shooting. :thumbsup:
