    RECENTLY I HAVE STARTED LOOKING HIGHER THAN LEVEL WITH THE GROUND THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF MY GLASSES AND LIFTING THE GUN TO MY FACE. THIS GIVES ME A SIGHT PICTURE LOOKING UP HILL TO THE END SIGHT AND INSTEAD OF LOOKING DOWN AROUND THE GUN FOR THE TARGET I LOOK OVER THE RIB BUT SEE THE TARGET COMING. IT SEEMS TO HELP ME TO SEE THE TARGET BETTER AND TO HIT THEM BETTER. WOULD YOU SAY THAT I'M SHOOTING OFF OF THE END OF THE GUN?

    ANY COMMENTS OR DISCUSSION?

    Keeping head straight will help with head lifting off the stock problem.

    If you are making a consistent cheek weld when you bring the gun up to your face it sounds exactly what Harlan Campbell taught in his class which I took about a month ago. If your breaking more birds consistently then the new mount is working for you.

    I would not say you are shooting off the end of the gun. This is how I look for the target too, if I look to far down I have a tendency to bead check when I call for the target. Your peripheral vision will catch the target quicker rather than using direct site.
