If you were distracted by the little raccoon way off in the woods, you should take up a quieter game like golf. :05:

I woof 1/10. And as soon as the ball is airborne I want to shoot it. No way.

Dude, they're relatives.

Ear plugs... Electronic ear muffs... iPod...

Keep the raccoons in the trees in the woods.

Hearing is difficult for me to shut out. When I had it tested, the lady said she had never seen hearing that acute. I need to double up on protection, but I hate muffs like a farm dog hates a collar.

So here's what happened. I pulled my attention back, from out in the field to some point, I don't know where because I was distracted, and called for the target and promptly missed. The point being twofold:

1. I have to start with my attention out in the field and come back to the target when I see the streak in my peripheral vision.

2. I should always come down and restart whenever distracted.

I like Bruce's point above that my focus wasn't that strong if a noise distracted me. There's a lot of truth in that. Thanks Bruce.

Whenever something keeps you from shooting or (calling for the target), you should always stop lower your gun, and open the breach/ open gun, then re-set your entire shooting routine and start from the beginning before calling again. Be sure to clear your head and mentally re-focus as well. This is the most important step. break em all Jeff

I love the sounds those `coons make in my Have-A-Heart trap just before a CB -Short slams into their foreheads .

Some day the tables will be turned. Repeat after me, "Fury Lives Matter".

Hmm. I figured you for a guy who would toss the trap in the water and watch them drown...
