The other answer to is to consider that being taken by surprise is part of the fun and challenge of teal hunting. Don’t even try to take the bad, rushed shots. Wait for the ones you can see coming. When you can, remember that teal are not only slower than they appear, they’re smaller, too. A teal that looks to be in range is really close. With apologies to Ruark, and his mile-long leads, most teal can be killed by shooting at their beaks or a bit in front.
