Only 6 weeks to hunting season and time to start getting the dogs and ourselves "tuned up" to be ready. I'm going to show you a simple arm exercise that will make toting your gun around easier, and mounting it smoother (if you do it, that is).
My favorite hunting gun weighs 8lbs, with most of the heavy-lifting entrusted to my wimpy left arm, since I shoot off my right shoulder. My left hand is responsible for initiating my gun mount, lifting the gun out and up to my cheek, and at the same time, pointing towards the bird. If I have not tuned up my left arm, I’ll have to hope for a limit in the minimum of three shots (ha!) before I get tired.
