I personally don't shoot this way because If the lead is 10 feet and I've mounted 2 feet in front then arithmetic is involved..

Do you actually see lead? Of course. When we look at a target we’ve seen thousands of times, we know exactly where the barrel has to go to break the bird because it’s been trained what that picture looks like. So the idea is to put the barrel where you know it needs to go without focusing on that process. You have to watch the target, but not so hard that you lose all the other information about what is going on. I see the target and I am aware of a fuzzy barrel out there in front somewhere. Your hands make the adjustments to the fuzzy thing out there based on info they receive from your eyes watching the speed/line/distance of the target. When I am shooting really well, I don’t really see anything but the smoke of the target after it’s all over. That is the “zone” they speak of. You are letting it happen, not forcing it to happen. I tell people, my eyes know where to put the barrel, but my brain knows EXACTLY where to put the barrel. SHUT THE BRAIN OFF and let the training and eyes do their job and watch what happens!


This pretty much sums it up for me when I`m shooting what I consider to be " well ". I hit more clays or birds in the field when I consciously see very little, if anything, of anything else but the target It seems to be that when I take time to " think " , I miss. It makes we wonder if shooting isn`t an instinctive endeavor.
