Some hunters aim for the head. Others lead the duck a little in front. Which works better for you?

Well, I do not aim my shotgun, it gets pointed, swung and fired instinctively, any true shotgunner will tell you never to "AIM" at a moving target...

i watched beretta's bird hunter on oln one day and it talked about the 4 b's of wingshooting and after tryin this its all i do. it goes a little somethin like this 1. butt 2. breast 3. beak 4. bang. seems to work for me but it just all depends on how your shotgun shoots and what works for you. give it a shot and see if you like it.

Hey Stuck, join a Skeet club. Learn how to lead and follow thru on
the targets.

Quackhead04 has it right.See the bird,get barrel moving behind bird at same speed as bird,come across the butt,belly,beak and without stopping your swing slap trigger just as you pass the beak.DON'T STOP YOUR SWING or you will shoot behind bird!!!!!!

It's all different. Depends on gun, shot size and velosity, bird distance and speed, direction, your shooting platform(boat, blind, layout) I've never really put much thought into shooting, my gun goes up, I look at the bird with both eyes, and I shoot 'em.
