Zeroing in on the target may sound like obvious advice, but it's trickier than it sounds, because it first entails choosing the right one. To consistently connect with waterfowl, for example, it's not enough to simply pick a duck or goose. Instead, you need to narrow your focus to a particular part of the bird. Consider a crossing shot, for example. "Because the bird's wing is creating the most motion, a shooter's eye naturally goes to it," Ash says. "But if you look there, you'll miss behind. Instead, you want to concentrate on a goose's eye or the feathers of a duck's head."
