I have a close friend who’s a pretty good clay shooter, but his shooting suffers because of his willingness to pitch in to the gun club. He’s a co-chairman for the shotgun program, so most of his Sunday visits to the club’s five stand involve more administration than pulling the trigger.
Turkey hunting seasons are opening all around the country. I’m on various social media networks, and the other day a follower asked me a question, “What advice would you have for a person who is a first-time turkey hunter?”
The first rule I learned about waterfowl hunting is: be where the birds want to be. Good advice, but sometimes easier said than done. Scouting is a vital part of that and scouting locations early in the season and before is not only a smart move but also a good way to keep you on your game year-round..
Follow along for several basic duck calling tips that you will need in order to become a better caller and in turn increase your chances of bringing the ducks into shooting range.
On some days – all too rare days – wingshooting seems so easy. It’s as easy as pointing your finger and thinking, “bang!” When that happens, it’s because the clays seem as big as trashcan lids or the pheasants seem to fly in slow motion.
In trap, skeet, and sporting clays breaking 100 out of 100 targets in a round is a perfect score. It’s an accomplishment any shooter (especially a new shooter) can be proud of. Heck, don’t even worry about 100 straight – 25 and 50 straights are pretty sweet, too.
The choke tube wrench adapted to fit into the arbor of a cordless drill driver is apparently an urban legend – at least from the perspective of it being made commercially. Yet I’m sure a Frankenstein-ed version has shown up at the clays course on more than one occasion.
A new shooter can often wonder where to begin in hunting. First off they need to attend a hunter education course to learn safety, responsibility and ethics. After completing a certification course, they are free to hunt, but where do they start?
My favorite way to kick off the hunting season is a dove hunt. My very first wingshooting experience was a dove hunt with a 16 gauge single barrel and a tobacco field. I think I managed to put three doves on the ground with two boxes of shotgun shells. At the end of the afternoon, I had a sore shoulder and a love for the fast flying birds that fly so hard they squeak.
