I don't think the shotkam alters the way I shoot. I guess because a pheasant will keep its line the same after the first shot miss, means you can go back and have another go with the second barrel. Unlike a pigeon which will usually take off on a new path after the bang.
I often dont fire the second barrel after a clean missed first barrel pigeon when flightline shooting.
I think that the following the bird down thought only enters my head, when I can see I've killed it.
Interesting comment though. I'd not thought about.
Thanks for the comments everyone.
