  4. There’s no free lunches, everything is a give and take. I know I can shoot tighter groups with a scope as well at a target, but as long as I can put 1 in the middle of a deer I know I’m going to get him so I don’t care about group size. Scopes are an excellent aid and if there’s not snow on the trees or coming from the sky I hunt with a scope. If there is than I won’t take the chance and just carry a gun with a peep.

  5. Dry firing is your friend! You can do it in your house for free. I dryfire 5 or 6 times a week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Before you worry about snap shooting work on your freehand shooting. Once your groups start Shrinking then start working in some snap shooting. Your best tracking days it’s very difficult to keep a scope clean. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. By open sights do you mean open sights or a peep sight? Also what do you mean by good shot? I personally hate the standard open sights not because I can’t shoot them well enough but because they cover too much of my target and it’s surroundings. A peep gives you a lot more open sight picture to be able to see branches and sampling etc. If you’re constantly hitting a pie plate at 50yds that’s more than good enough!

  8. No, I don’t know anyone that uses them. What do you do with the sticks when a buck jumps up 20yds from you? I’ve never worried about the long shots because I’ll have time to get ready and most times I’m carrying a gun with iron sights, 150yds is as long as I want to shoot. 150yds is a shot I’m perfectly comfortable taking trying to get a bullet in the middle of a deer without a rest. If I have time to set up shooting sticks I have time to take a kneeling position or lean against a near by tree for added support. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. If you’ve ever saw the episodes where he hunted with the old guy I believe it was his uncle it’s what I imagine a day in the woods with Pygmy would be like. Those were my favorite episodes, I don’t think I’ve watched one since the old timer died. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I don’t really have an end goal. I’ve had a couple ideas but I want to see how it turns out before getting in too deep with it. I got banged up a bit overseas, it’s not getting better that’s why I want to do this while I can. Thanks for the offer! I may take you up on it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. For those of you that are already tracking or are interested in it now is the time to be honing your shooting skills. I shoot one of me deer rifles at least weekly. I’m lucky to be able to shoot in my back yard. I know many don’t have that ability but you can still be practicing properly at a public range. The drills I did this week was 3 shots at a 10” steel plate at 50yds from a carry position. My carry position is my hand right hand wrapped around the receiver. As a left eye dominant right handed person that shoots left handed this is what I’ve found to be most comfortable and fast. A have a very basic free shot timer app on my phone. I averaged just under 4 seconds from beep to 3rd hit at 50yds. You don’t need steel targets a paper target will work the same, the only difference if I miss a shot I shoot until my 3rd hit. I shot 2 boxes of ammo. The first box was single shots. From carry position to shot. The second box was the 3 shot drill. It’s a great drill for this style of hunting, I highly recommend it. It works on many aspects of getting the shots off when tracking. I’m working on getting a camera to start filming some of my range work to add to this thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
