How do I shoot driven birds coming straight on?

John Bidwell
That’s easy… learn how to shoot driven birds off both the front and back foot so that you are able to cope with every target regardless of its height or speed.

For instance, can you transfer your weight effortlessly from front to back foot to enable you to take a second shot at a target missed with the first?

Or continue an uninterrupted swing to deal with the second of a pair directly overhead, or even slightly behind the shooting position?

If you can’t practice this on an actual game shooting set-up then you can do so in the privacy of your own home or garden with a daily session of dry-mounting lasting five or so minutes.
