    I have a bad habit of saying some explicitly like crap, or s---- but occasionally we have a female in our mix and I decided to use another word that better suited for mixed company. I now say OBAMA when I miss.


    What do you guys do?

    Absolutely nothing at all. I just stare at the field, take a deep breath, and get ready for the next target.

    But IN MY HEAD I say things I can't repeat in a public forum...

    I say "I'm going to get the next one," but I don't say it out loud.

    I agree with my fellow shooters;I say nothing but PULL aloud...I like getting 25 but I know it's my fault when I don't.I just enjoy the shooting.Relax and have fun.Life's too short.

    This is not a fair question. I'm going to try and switch to Recurvyarcher's advice. AJ

    I found that saying anything while standing at the voice release throws birds, even upsets the shooter getting ready for thier shot, so " I save talking to myself about a miss for when I am online with the only guy I have to beat" ;)-

    It's not proper to say anything.

    You should remove the spent shell, examine it from all angles as if it were defective, and throw it on the ground while looking disgusted.

    To my self, "You stupid sh!t. ________________!" filled in by one of the following:

    Keep your head on the stock

    Keep your eye on the target

    Keep your head in the game

    Don't call until you're ready

    Don't move the gun until you see the target

    Soft focus

    The list goes on and on.
