    The Five Rules to make Visualization Effective There are five key rules of visualization that are a must if you want to make it effective. 1) You must understand what the Zone is and you must be able to get into it in your visualization. 2) You must be adrenalized more than you think you will need in your actual event. 3) You must keep visualizations short and powerful. 4) You must do them frequency just as with any kind of practice. 5) And you'll probably want to do it alone when no one will see you to avoid being self-conscious.

    Q:  How do I stop my bad habit of moving my gun before I see the bird come out of the house?


    A.  This is a great question.  The reason we develop this bad habit is because the bird usually comes out very close to the time we call for it, and we can get often get away with moving early.  It is only when there is a delay that we start noticing our bad habit.  Watch the video for the rest of the answer.

    Spencer asks if shooting clay targets is 90% mental. Bob answers with a big YES. Very skillful athletes can collapse in the big game because they become intimidated, feel bad when they make a mistake, think about a past loss, etc. They can keep practicing harder or they can use mental exercises to make the next competition seem exciting and familiar, and they can use various strategies to make their "fearsome" opponents disappear when they step into the are in the post.
