    Some guys are great shooters and great teachers.
    Some guys are great shooters and not-so-good teachers.

    I’ve seen the first two, never the last one.

    That was a very good demonstration by a Pro , I was just surprised nothing was mentioned about the forward hand placement ?
    The closer the hand is , the faster the move !

    Looks like good basic instructions. Good view for new hunters. I use both of those overhead methods depending on speed of the bird and where it is when I get the gun mounted. I never thought about it until he demonstrated both. I'll be screwed now because I'll be noticing it every time I shoot overhead. I would really like to hear what he has to say about hard right birds approaching 90 degrees from a layout blind for a right handed shooter. I set up with my feet 45 degrees right to compensate for lack of movement.

    I think I just watched a Sitka infomercial. Oh and the guy with the mullet needs a haircut.

    I can't believe David has held onto those Gamebores for 20 years. He's only like 25.

    Absolutely hate it when one of my hunters asks, "How far are you leading them?" Not so much because it's a question I can't answer, as because I'm apt to start paying attention to it and fall into a slump.

    It appears I am surrounded by experts.
    I see a lot of bad shooters but great teachers. Me for instance, when I miss I turn and say, “don’t shoot like me.”

    Here's an example of a good-but-not-great shooter.
    Gil Ash: great teacher/coach, never won a national or state championship that we know of. ( at least, none mentioned in his website's bio)
