It's served me well enough. Sunset. Determining sunset in an area where the western horizon is obscured can be difficult. Pick out a tall object you can easily see from your position. When the shadow creeps up to 1/2 of it's height, unload your gun. Cell towers or water towers work well for this. When leading a left to right, or right to left flyer, use 1 barrel width of lead. Distance will not require an adjustment. The distance makes the lead wider by itself, and your barrel swing adjusts automatically as well. Straight in and straight away are easiest for me. Incoming, cover the bird with the barrel and fire. Going away, front bead just below the bird. High fliers (low percentage shot) use the same weight and velocity shells but switch to #6 shot. Fewer pellets by a bit but the distance and retained energy increase is noticeable. Get your downed bird asap and keep your game bag off the ground. Fire ants are everywhere and they work quickly. When you down a bird, keep your eye on it as best as possible. Once you reach the area it went down, throw your hat down. If you keep looking and wandering, youl soon be guessing where you originally saw it hit. 5 minutes of searching is a good honest effort, get back to your perch. Above all, know where your companions are in the field and let them know if you move. Happy hunting!
