We know, we know…it’s a bit cliche, but when it comes down to it practice really is the number one thing that will help you bag more birds while you’re out in the field. A few rounds of sporting clays is sure to help get you in peak performance for the season to come, and luckily here at Longmeadow we run our clays courses year round. Shooting from a low gun start on the clays course will help get you prepped for the doves, but it’s important to focus on the following to help ease the transition from clays to feathers; keep your head on the stock, eye on the target, and do your best to match the dove’s speed. Make sure to look at the bird, not the bead, and don’t move your gun too fast. If you can keep all of this in mind while on the course, then you’ll be hitting those daily bag limits in no time!
