1. Correct gun fit.
If the gun will not shoot where you are looking it is not a good thing...............
2. Correct Choke
if the pattern is too light (open)or even to tight (small ) for the range, you will miss targets.
3. Correct Stance
A good stance will let one be able to swing on the target, be balanced and prevent muscle strain.
Mental conditioning is said to be 80% of the game but these are the basic building blocks, along with
lots of practice.
As for lead it can be from none to as much as 4 feet at the center station and #8 is just the matter of getting in front of the target, at this close range, depending on how fast you swing your gun.

....Trap would help you here. Need to remember something on going away targets,..most of the time they are going to be gaining elevation as they leave. Knowing how your gun will pattern is a big plus. Your gun barrel on going away targets, will somewhat obscure the target from view when you raise the bead off of it to shoot "above" the target projectory,.. simular to targets coming straight to you that are high when you come off of the incoming target with the bead to lead it.doehunter wrote: Going away is shots are harder for me.
