I was at the range a couple weeks ago and noticed that I tend to jerk the trigger rather than squeeze. I’m guessing I’ll just have to break that habit through practice at the range and with my air rifle at home. I thought it would be a good idea to ask you guys what are some shooting mistakes you see at the range and while hunting with other people. The only big game animal I’ve taken so far was a whitetail buck on a youth hunt in Kansas about four years ago. My first shot missed him and I was lucky that it was a clean miss and he stood still long enough for me to take another shot instead of bolting; so I assume there are other things I can improve on besides squeezing the trigger.
