I don't think you are doing any thing wrong.
I learned a bunch from your post.
If you wouldn't keep mentioning it was y'all's first serious attempt no one would have known.
Take an experienced LR shooter to a new spot and if they are not super attentive to the details they can get snookered pretty bad.
I made very good shooting rig look like it had a bent barrel. I knew the guy who was very experienced at this specific spot was thinking "He paid how much and to whom for this rig"?
I gave it to him to shoot and was duly impressed as was he.
With real estate it's all about location. With LR and beyond its all about experience.
I hear ya about no mat. I absent mindedly (not unusual) laid the mat over a nice flat ant hill. Once I figgered out what was goin' on I made Gypsy Rosalie look slow.
