I answered your question in my original response. I always lead for ahead or neck shot. Easiest place on their entire body to get penetration through any feathers.
I won't and don't claim to be better than anyone around here but I do know for a fact that I have more years of hard experience under my belt than a good number on this forum. I have shared the knowledge I have from my own mistakes over the years. It's only that, my experience, my mistakes, my triumphs, only mine. So take it with a grain of salt. My aim here has always been to be far more helpful than anything else. If anyone chooses to take my advice or thoughts as offensive, then so be it. I have no intentions to get sideways with anyone here.
I took a long break from this place. For reasons along the same lines as you starting to get bent out of shape for nothing.
That part was directed at Bill Parks for being an @ss and not having any common sense.
My post after that was replying to you.
I was perfectly alright until the part was brought up about shooting ducks past 40 is skybusting. That's absolutely ridiculous. It's only skybusting if you're missing. 40yds is well within the effectiveness of #3s and maybe even #4s.
And actually in reality I am perfectly calm. I am just done with trying not to step on anyone's toes on this website and that's been my attitude for a number of months now. Seems to be working pretty well for me thus far.
This isn't directed at you, more like everyone....but notice when Yuchi talked about making 60yd shots with #1s out of a 10? Am I skeptical? Yeah of course I am. But did I try to belittle him, tell him that he's lying, or call him a skybuster? No, because I've only met him once and only saw him shoot a pattern board. Maybe if I hunt with him he can erase my skepticism or perhaps he is exaggerating. But until then I have no call to say anything like that and it would be wrong for me to do that.
