The ol' "military sling trick". You use the sling from your weapon to help steady your shot.
what if you dont have a sling on your gun... i dont
Check out this website, it discribes it in full, try what they say and adjust to fit your shooting style.
Use a tree or Shoot from the sitting or prone positions those two are more accurate. Practice shooting withou a stand.
or only shoot does because they don't produce buck fever.
Either find a tree to steady on or take three deep breaths, exhale half of the 4th breath and then shoot.
Just try to find a place to rest it tree forks work well or sitting or prone if you can get there.
P.S. Rest the rifle on your hand not on anything solid!!
Take a deep breath and slowly squeeze the trigger since the majority of shaking is you breathing. It is also much easier kneeling than standing and easier in the prone position than kneeling. Good luck.
take a couple deep breaths and fire away.
wrap your sling around your forward arm, or rest against a tree. Or take a knee
Prone Supported (laying on your stomach gun resting on a bag, stump, log etc.
Prone Unsupported (can be accurate)
Sling method works as well especially in unsupported positions.
Get a good sight picture
Squeaze Trigger (Do not Jerk the trigger)
Every shot should be a surprise
Stock in the cup of your shoulder
When aquiring a good sight picture and breathing there is a natural pause. Your gun moves while you breath when it comes to the natural pause it rests take your shot during the natural pause.
If you have time, you could rest your support elbow on your hip, and use the fingertips of your support hand to steady the rifle, with your thumb under the triggerguard and your fingers under the magazine floorplate.
What is a gun stand?
Grip your gun farhter up the stock. Or lean on a tree.
Shooting "sticks" might be what you need.
I always find a rest of some sort. I have used a shooting stick/hiking stick for a lot of years. If I get caught without it, I shoot from a sitting position with my forearm on my thigh or knee.
