Abstract:

"Pete Blakeley's revolutionary unit lead system for learning to shoot well has put more birds in many a hunter's bag. His unique instruction helps simplify that elusive and key element of the successful bird hunter: forward allowance, or lead. Successful shotgunning depends on creating accurate sight pictures of the birds. Wingshooting explores the three variables that determine each sight picture--the flight line of the bird, its speed, and the distance to the bird--to help your decipher the correct lead for each bird. This is shooting advice from not only a fellow bird hunter but also a professional shooting coach who explains why you miss and what you can do about it. Pete Blakeley's approach emphasizes how to apply a specific lead to a specific target, and his colorful stories bring the hunt to life in these pages, whether it's doves in Muleshoe, Texas, or driven pheasants in Scotland"--Dust jacket flap.
