20/01/2019 - Shoot Summary

A very busy shoot this morning, thanks for all your support. I was expecting a really cold and wet day but not so; it was surprisingly mild, and the sun managed to come out towards the end of the shoot.

Stand 1 – High Away Bird followed OR by Low Away Bird
These birds both under power which meant that fast acquisition was key especially on the second lower bird, both fairly straightforward and well presented.

Stand 2 – Left-Right Quartering Rabbit followed OR by Right-Left Looper
The rabbit an illegitimate child of Tom Oliver, an unusual presentation that meant you had to be both quick and accurate to break the target before it hit the wall. A real Marmite target some scoring extremely well others really badly.

Stand 3 – Forced Pair of Right-Left Crossing Birds
A fantastic pair of birds presented side on they flew in perfect formation across the front of the stand. Loved what they looked like but hated how they shot like.

Stand 4 – High Teal followed OR by Low Driven Away Bird
The Teal very definitely the harder of the two, from the front they appeared as a straight up Teal but in reality, they were moving away from you quite a bit. This made these pretty confusing for a lot of you, if however, you got on they by chance straight away they fell to order. Most of us mere mortals who didn’t get on them immediately struggled to find the sweet-spot. The driven away bird a much easier offering meaning most people got at least 5 on the stand.

Stand 5 – Hight Right-Left Crosser followed OR by Driven Away bird off the left shoulder
The high crossing bird an easy enough target due to them being quite close in and slow, it was easy to lose concentration and drop the shot if you weren’t careful. The away bird off the left shoulder were easy if taken as a driven bird, I saw a number of you struggling to take them as a crosser off the shoulder. Let they fly guys ‘n gals they really were driven birds!

One personal best this week.
