    I wish I knew the answer to that one myself! I don't even realize that I'm doing it until someone tells me.

    You could try sewing some velcro to you cheek. That would probably work fairly well.

    Lower your butt pad to bring the comb up higher. Shoot softer shells so you stop avoiding the recoil. Go see Dennis Default for a fitting.

    A had the same problem for years until I had a stock fitted for me. Now that my stock fits no more head lifting. And no more flinch. I can shoot Nitro 27 with no felt recoil. It's all in stock fit.

    soft comb on your stock, some type of mechanical recoil reduction system, like those made by Soft touch, Dawson enterprises- stock lock, Sietz recoil reduction sytem, etc....
    deaden the noise from the wood to the cheek bone and the recoil to the shoulder. It will work. Now you know the Secret.

    The advice about following a chunk to the ground is what works for me. WHEN... I remember to do it. The other thing and it sounds simple is just to finish the shot. Stay in the gun and watch the target break over your gun barrel. I suspect that one of the biggest reasons that anybody lifts the head is a slightly slow pull. It's funny, Many people think that voice pulls provide on time pulls every time. It's just not so. When that pull is just a tiny bit slow the eye will jump from where it's looking for the target to where you normally break the target. It's very hard to explain but I think the at a sub- consoius level the brain thinks the target left the trap house and that the eye's somehow missed seeing it. So... The eye looks and the head follows and then that just off time target is seen and shot but it is done so with the eye rather then the eye in conjunction with the barrel bead. The barrel kills the target not the eye. This is why it is crucial to stay in the gun until the target passes your muzzel. I can only say one thing for certain. For me .. when I lift my head it's usally because the target is slow. Lifting the head has got to be the number one reason anybody misses a target and lots of guys with custom stocks and gazzillion dollar shotguns still lift the head so it's not a gun fit thing once that has been solved through a stock that fits just right. It's very true that a stock that hurts you is going to cause you to raise the head. One more thing, Your brain knows that an explosion is about to take place about 6 inches from the end of your nose. It's a natural reaction for your brain to see that as a bad thing and want to get the rest of the body a little further away. LOL Jeff

    Nora Ross videotaped me at her school and showed me that the faster I move off my hold point and to the target, the more likely I am to relax my cheek pressure on the stock. She did a drill with me where I called for the bird, but was not allowed to move my gun until she said "GO". This got the bird clear of my barrel where I could see it clearly and got me over the rush of seeing the bird break out of the house. That has helped me more than any other tip I ever got. I still move to the target as fast as before, I just wait a little longer before I do it. I just wish I could get her to stand behind me every time I shoot.

    Do this. Take all the pins from state shoots and the Grand, put them and any other shooting related pins you have, on your hat. The added weight will "PIN" your head to the stock. I have been saveing this for my trapshooting clinic but it is yours for nothing..............Roger
