How to succeed with your forest bird hunting
Know your rifle
As always, a familiar and zeroed rifle is important, absolutely a must. The distances are sometimes long and if you need to compensate a little, you need to know your weapon.
Invest in good optics – and a rangefinder
If you want to shoot a lot of birds, it is a good idea to invest in really good optics. Clear lenses and the possibility of magnification can definitely be the icing on the cake during a forest bird hunt.
The birds' good vision is a challenge, but the right camouflage makes it all easier. Now during the fall, it is a good idea to hide your face during a stalk. Another good tip is to try to avoid moving sideways as much as possible, such a movement pattern makes it easier to be detected. Strive to go as straight as possible.
Take it easy – and squeeze the trigger
Squeeze the trigger. Stress is rarely good, not least in these contexts. Be careful – and enjoy the good result!
