Slo mo shotgun impact – Pigeons

Understanding the concept of “lead” when shooting a shotgun can be difficult to grasp. In this film we slow the action down. It allows the viewer to see the shot being thrown out in front of a fast moving wood pigeon…the bird then flies through the cloud of pellets. Often the shot can fall behind the quarry because the shooter doesn’t allow for the speed of the bird .

Andy Crow is our man behind the gun in this film which first appeared in Fieldsports Britain episode 141. To watch the whole show go to
