Learn how to build skill in the field and take more birds in competition; a solid guide for becoming a better shot.
Successful shotgunning isn't an inherent trait, it is a skill and it must be learned like any other skill. It requires systematic study and the ability to accurately calculate the variables of moving targets. Peter Blakeley's coaching methods involve an intuitive technique that is based on pure logic and a systematic breakdown of all the variables involved. This is how the experts shoot. Over a period of time they build up a personal mental repertoire of sight pictures, which they can then successfully apply to each target, regardless of whether it is a quail, dove, duck or clay target. They then have the ability to see a subtle but consequential target/barrel relationship on every shot and adjust to each different shooting situation.
Reviews: "Successful Shotgunning is a worthy addition to the field of books on shotgun shooting. It's a thorough useful volume written in a cherry, conversational tone, and it imparts a wealth of practical knowledge. —Charles Fergus
Successful Shotgunning covers the full gamet of shotgun shooting situations. . . everything from competitive skeet and sporting clays to hunting the driven red grouse of Scotland, whitewing doves in Texas, and the bobwhite quail of Georgia. The author has a keenly analytical eye and is able to explain with logical, well-thought-out reasons why we often miss even the 'easy' shots. It will be a powerful influence on the shotgunning sports for decades to come. —Dennis Walrod
