Last week we watched as my friend Jim shot The Big Ten Buck sitting on a bucket, covered in a sheet, left-handed. This supports a point we made earlier in the season: shoot your situation.
How many of you know you’re reliable distance left-handed? I didn’t until I thought about Jim’s situation and went to the range. Preparing for the unexpected is a mantra I’ve long preached. That means taking target practice from your shooting house, blind or tree stand. It also means training for those situation when the deer comes in the wrong way, or for whatever reason your handling is all mucked up.
Practice the implausible, and it might just one day pay off. You never know when that buck of a lifetime is going to walk up behind you.
