I honestly think I don't have a conscious thought at the magic moment. What I have begun to do is tell myself....as soon as I decide to take an animal .....that that animal is dead. Itwent from "am i really gonna get a shot at this animal" to....."dead deer".

This is also about the time I quit being nervous before the shot. After the shot???? No comment.

I think about my aiming at the exact spot I want to hit.

I already have that spot picked out so I'm concentrating, concentrating, concentrating, concentrating, on that spot and releasing!

Same here.

Taking an animal has just become sub-conscious for myself. It's all memory. I seem to just fade out.. and totally rely on muscle memory from the moment I know I am ready to take this particular animal. It's so fundamental.. I can't even explain it.. but thought... their is none.

I am sure for many hunters this is normal.

I pick a spot, concentrate and try not to think of those back straps until after the shot!

Just to think of one, I sometimes have a statement made by John Schulz (and I hear it in his voice) refering to a Howard Hill concept saying,

"Upon release both hands do nothing".
