Thanks but no pressure at all.
One thing I talk about a lot is the "art of sniping (insert shooting) vs the technical side of shooting.
It doesn't matter how much time you spend playing with your technology and calculating the exact dope to make the perfect shot. All of that works great at the range but in the real world of the field more often than not you just don't have that long to get a shot off.
I was just trying to convey "how it was done" before the advent of all the modern aids we have today.
You'd be amazed what you can accomplish with a little practice, and just a range and wind drift card taped to your stock.
As for pressure? Not in the least. Under pressure is when you look through your scope and see a bad guy looking back at you or for you through his own... . Been there and done that. Like I said in the original write up above, "What the hell all you can do is miss" and in this case, a miss doesn't get you shot or mean you end up starving. This is just fun.
Even when you do miss though every one of those misses is a learning opportunity. Take notes about how high/low, and windage, then figure out where you went wrong by trying to replicate the shot under field conditions in practice.
It's the misses you can learn the most from, not the hits.
