Whether you are new to sporting clays or at the top of your game, you’ve likely had the teal target eat your lunch. The springing teal can be petrifying, but why? At close distances, the teal is everyone’s favorite target. Its vertical trajectory displays the target’s full face or full belly. It’s like a garbage can lid; how could you possibly miss?

Impediments that keep one from seeing the target to our best ability can prevent the brain and body from successfully executing the task at hand. Tapping into this underlying reservoir of shotgunning talent isn't difficult. The proper mindset, combined with some basic [...]
