    Looks like I shot over a lot of the birds. I was using really fast ammo and the birds were really close and even with IC or Cyl choke, it just didn't open up fast enough. But total was 5 of us shot 71, mostly juvies.

    Looks like you had a lot of action ! Always wondered how accurate that red dot is on the camera.

    You can adjust it. I tried to have the POI above the dot so during the rise after the shot you could still see the bird in the frame. Looks like I need to adjust it some.

    what camera were you using. One thing I like about my replay mounted using tactical flashlight mount, easy to see why you missed.

    You had a nice shoot, lots of birds.

    With Shotkam, once I have looked at a few connections I can tell what the camera is seeing in regards to the reticle compared to my personal sight picture.

    Run a replay under your cap and you could split screen with the shotkam. Sometimes the fov is too tight on them. Did you overlead a few? Easy to pull too far ahead on close birds.

    Yep, pretty sure I did. Like I posted above, fast ammo and close birds = aim right at them.

    Saying that you didn't shoot very good is a major understatement. You weren't even on the same planet with many of them. Most people are just behind when they shoot, you weren't even on the same flight path. Now how does that happen. It was very painful to watch. I will say it look like a great day filled with opportunities. If you guys ended up with 71, the other guys must of been shooters.

    Its been a couple years since I've been able to hunt fields but I noticed with my shotkam footage it's easy to rush shots. With other guys shooting there is a lot of chaotic stuff happening while you're trying to acquire targets from the layout blind position.

    Use the Shotkam footage to make corrections and improving your shooting percentages shouldn't be tough.
