My recent post about the meaning of the phrase ‘soft mount’ went in several unexpected directions. Most of the nonprofessional answers were about draw length. Gil of OSP showed us a variation of the mount that’s interesting but probably not for me.

My expectation was the conversation would have been more about cheek pressure. So my question concerns the old axiom ‘love thy wood’. How much cheek pressure do you use?

More than a little, less than a lot.

immature side of me really wants to post something off topic (but on topic at the same time)

If you fit the gun so that your best mount is with firm cheek pressure then you only have one option if you miss a target PUSH HARDER INTO THE GUN.
For me this has worked for years but recently I have been waiting as long as possible to finalize my mount to allow for the best vision for as long as possible. When you have a firm mount it may compromise your vision so pushing in hard on the stock and riding the target may not work well.
Back to basics " Move --Mount Firm--Shoot".
Consistant, Repeatable and with Confidence.

A bit off topic but wondering how long you wait to mount the gun? In the past I used to mount the gun at the end of the move and almost immediately pull the trigger. But that seemed to take a great deal of coordination. I could do it but it felt inconsistent. My preference now is to start to turn, then mount and move with the bird longer before shooting. That’s an imitation of what I believe I see many of the top shooters do.

smoke: It depends on the target. Some need to be saddled up and ridden for a moment. Some can be shot the instant the gun hits your cheek.

Don't make strict rules , you need to be able to adapt to the situation. Riding a target is usually bad b/c with the gun in your face for a longer time , you'll feel the need to bbl check. Learn NOT to do that.

I do think it is Taboo to love thy neighbor's wood without permission. And then there is wood envy....

That's a solid 9.

Come on. The OP mentioned “soft mount” and “love thy wood” in the same post. That’s a fat slow pitch for sure.

I'm always interested to see how sick other people are. That way I can tell myself I'm not too far gone.

I’m not advocating his thoughts or behaviors - just reporting on it.
