ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Just saying those words can send shivers down a hunter’s spine. If hunting loses its excitement, then it’s time to change sports. Hunting is very exciting. It touches some of the deepest emotions of the soul, but if you’ve got buck fever, hunting can be a nightmare.
Buck fever is a hunter’s high that has gotten out of control. In this video, James Swan, Ph.D. draws upon three decades of work in modern sports psychology to give hunters a number of practical techniques to develop focus, concentration and mental imagery to help manage the natural excitement of hunting and turn buck fever into the shooting in “the zone” of optimum performance. The tips offered are applicable to any shooting sport, and can be of help to those who suffer from “target panic.”
Shooting techniques are illustrated in guest appearances by Ted Nugent, Dave Watson, Jeff and Sherol Engel, former natl. sporting clays champion Lily Sieu and Olympic Gold Medalist in double trap Kim Rhode.
