TIP: Connecting On The Crossing Shot

TIP: Connecting On The Crossing Shot

A crossing shot is one of the toughest shots in the duck marsh.

Lead 'Em Farther- A crossing shot is one of the toughest shots in the duck marsh. Most missed crossing shots are the result of the gunner's pattern being behind the bird. So if you are missing crossing shots often, try increasing your lead. Remember to get your bead out in front of the bird and continue to swing the barrel through after the shot, and you'll be on your way to greater waterfowl hunting success next fall.
