Now, we are going to talk about an eye dominance in clay shooting. All of us have a dominant eye.
A dominant eye is, the tendency of one of our eyes prefer visual input over the other.
But our dominant eye side doesn’t always match our dominant hand side. For example, if you might shoot right handed, you might be left eye dominant.
So whats that gonna cause is, when you point at your target, your eye is actually looking across your barrel.
That is gonna lead to a lot of misses and a lot of frustration. So the first thing we need to do is to test eye dominance to figure out if you left or right eye dominant.
A simple test is just to take with booth eyes open, place your finger under an object in the distance.
Then close your left eye, if nothing happens and it still place under that object, you are right eye dominant.
But, if when you close your left eye and it appear that your finger jump away from the object, then you are left eye dominant.
Now, if your dominant hand or your shooting side matches your dominant eye, thats great and nothing to worry about that.
But if you are right handed and it turns out that you are left side eye dominant, there is something that we need to look at.
This scenario is actually a lot more common than people realize and its not a big deal. There are some remedies.
One option is just to learn to shoot on your dominant eyes side. So if you left eye side dominant, maybe you shooting left handed.
I know it sound maybe like a lot of work, and it can be clumsy at first. But believe me, if a right eye dominant and right handed guy can learn to shoot left handed, I think you can do it too.
With a little bit of practice and repetition, it will become natural and we can guarantee you can hit more target.
