Nick Larson is the host and creator of the Birdshot Podcast. He and his family, which includes a pair of English setters, reside in Minnesota where he grew up and fell in love with the outdoors. Naturally, his favorite pursuit is upland bird hunting dating back 25+ years from his humble beginnings as a “partridge” hunter. Today, he chases adventure across the uplands wherever his bird dogs and the people he connects with inspire him to go.

Acclaimed gun fitter and wingshooting instructor Chris Batha joins the show to discuss common reasons why upland hunters miss.

Show Highlights:

  • A poorly fitted gun delivers poor results
  • Your gun mount is critical!
  • Slow is smooth and smooth is fast
  • Gauges and chokes?
  • Practice, practice, practice
