Module 07 - MARKSMANSHIP
The common mistake made by new hunters is that they angle their head and bring their cheek down to the stock, rather than bringing the stock up to their cheek. To properly shoulder your shotgun, keep your head straight, bring the shotgun stock to your cheek and then bring the stock to your shoulder. This shouldering technique will keep your head as straight as possible and your aim as accurate as possible.
