Having recently returned from my first goose shooting trip to Tiree, courtesy of Argyll Estates, I seem to have developed an odd habit.
The advice from an experienced wild fowler on the trip was to lie face down when flighting and don't "bloody move".
This has manifested itself into a habit of whenever I hear the sound of geese in the sky, whether I am outside pottering in the garden, walking the dogs, sitting a beer garden, I now freeze / drop my head / crouch, and prepare for the shot.
This new trait draws concerned and exasperated looks from my wife and children who are now convinced there is something seriously wrong with me 😳.
Has anyone else experienced a similar change of habits following a new shooting experience.
