Re: Tricks to hitting dogs on the run

Best advice I ever hear and follow religiously. Don't lead past their nose, get on them quick to get the pace and concentrate on follow through.

That chart that Greyfox posted is a great help in trying to understand the AMOUNT OF LEAD vs the coyote's speed , along with the bullet's speed. Even if this Guy is off a little bit, it still has some solid information to work with. We all have a choice to believe fact or fiction. Sometimes opinions end up combining them both together, but there must be more truth and facts when mathimatical numbers show up better than just opinions that are without proof.

If you have sound reasonable data or experience for how much to lead running targets... I'm all in.

I appreciate your post.

Do you have anymore information on how to lead targets or tip and tricks for practicing running shots....?
Obviously you have not read any of the previous threads . The trouble with learners is they are not capable of recognising good advice straight away .
I was a specialist moving target shooter in the military a trained sniper and a combat infantry soldier yes it was a long time ago but i can still do it all . I spent many days of my life practising shooting moving targets from the ground and from choppers but , hey !! " what the hell would I know " . My last post was about a poster accepting what is on a web site as "GOSPEL" but saying what is in this thread is just " OPINION " Weird.
However I am done with this thread as I don't feel like helping anymore because it is unappreciated .

Re: Tricks to hitting dogs on the run

Thanks all for the help. Bumper thank u for ur service. All this info has really helped me open my eyes to the processes of taking running shots. The only down fall to this whole learning curve is the limited amount of training. I know it's been asked already but I just want to throw it out there again. If there is any form of practice that anybody knows of, it would be greatly appreshiated

In my experience regardless of whether you lead by tracking or swing through,issues are commonly caused by stopping the swing just a the trigger is pulled. Shooting skeet is perhaps one of the best ways to train on follow - through. IMHO

Re: Tricks to hitting dogs on the run

For practice if you had a fast running river or creek where you could shoot safe. A buddy could throw a block of wood or a baloon with a rock tied on for weight, from up stream and shoot it as it comes past. I have a creek that has a 30' bluff where I can shoot down into the water.

Re: Tricks to hitting dogs on the run

it has to move at least 30 mph for practicing for coyotes.... how can that happen.

Re: Tricks to hitting dogs on the run

make a moving target stand still....pick a spot and hold where in front of him. when the cross hairs come over fur squeeze..granted this is only good to about 200. but if your shooting more then that on a running dog, perhaps you should be more concerned about first shot hits
