In my youth, I used to shoot international style skeet so I'd be faster mounting but those reflexes are long gone. I have trouble now even seeing the birds especially station 2 HH and 6 LH.

My hunting guns never fit me that well so I actually aim or look at the bead n lead when I should just be watching the bird. Other times it's just what I refer to as "instinct shooting" and I'm on auto pilot - no conscious thought I'm aware of. Probably why I get the "poof."

New England hunting is usually very dense wooded terrain and IC is best for snap shooting. Why I opened my SXS to IC/MOD instead of Mod/Full. Woodcock dwell in the thickets and are the most challenging birds I've ever hunted.

My health has gone South and my hunting days might be behind me but I still like to throw lead in the air on the summer skeet league.

I've just purchased a 410 O&U, 20ga.O&U and 12Ga.O&U from my Mom and I already had the Rem. 1100 12ga. and have another Rem. 1100 20 ga. coming from WV that I bought on gunbroker.
We are all going to get together the first week in June and try to get the range in operation.
We're hoping the bursted clays won't kill the horses in the nearby pasture, horses won't ingest them will they....say no.

Niantic Sportsmans Club - I wanted to go but lacked the funds for travel. Hopefully, I'll be on the Staff for the next FTF Shooting Seminar.
