OL: What's your protocol for scouting out a site?
TG: I'll visit a site multiple times, during different times of day, before I'll actually shoot there. Where can I blend in? Where can I snipe from? Then I'll look at the place on Google Earth and study the terrain and pattern the birds. If it's out in the country, you just pattern the crows, make a game plan and then go kick their ass. In a more populated area [like with a pigeon shoot, for example] I'll talk to my site supervisor and see who is going to be pissed if they see me shooting birds. Then, if I see that guy, I won't shoot that day. Besides that, I don't leave a trace. I use metro barrels on my shotgun or shoot air rifles. I pick up all the birds, use peroxide to clean up the blood, and I'm gone. It's like I was never even there.
