A guy that I shoot with got one a couple of years ago and if memory serves me correct, I remember him stating that he had to hold a tad lower then what he was use to with his O/U. Just a thought??

assuming that your bt99 has a high rib you want to see a little of the target when shooting unlike your normal field guns that you have to cover the target completely when shooting. i don't know of your o/u was a field model or not but i think all bt99's have a high rib and so you want to see the target when shooting, also depends on where you're comb is adjusted to. you might have to shoot a lot of practice rounds just to get use to it, i had to this year when i bought a new o/u i couldn't hit worth a darn right away either.

follow through your shot! i was doing the same thing last year.

i was so used to shooting my winchester for grouse and when i switched to my browning for duck hunting, and i was missing the crossing shots. i couldn't understand what i was doing wrong, until my dad was watching me shoot clays.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
