A few years ago Field & Stream ran a rifle shooting feature by Dave entitled "Never Miss Again." It might have even been a whole special section in the magazine. I know it was full of good advice and might even had featured bonus pictures of Dave in his D.I. hat. Whatever the case, after reading it I remember believing that if you practiced diligently and took only good shots in the field you might truly never miss a big game animal again. Ever. I didn't think that applied to shotgunning, and still don't. We all miss sometimes, although it has become my goal not to. Of course, I've come nowhere close to achieving that goal this year, and I won't ever go through a season without missing. Like anyone else I will lift my head, or make a bad gun mount, or peek at the bead from time to time.
