Shooting tips from the pros: Norma Academy prepares you for successful wild boar hunting

Norma Academy Steffen Foullon
Steffen Foullon shows how to maintain the elevation and lateral direction of the rifle, even when shooting freehand and in a swinging motion.

Steffen Foullon, shooting trainer at the Norma Academy, explains the basics of shooting at moving game in the video. Especially when hunting wild boar, you should learn a few tricks to hit safely and, above all, under stress in a way that is appropriate for the hunter. A few rules of thumb are easy to memorize, but regular training on the shooting range and in the shooting cinema are just as important.

In this video from Norma Academy, shooting trainer Steffen Foullon shows you where to aim when shooting wild boar in order to hit them safely even when they are moving. 

In Norma's video you will learn, for example:

  • how to spatially assess the different movements of running wild boar and their speed
  • how the size of the target changes with distance and how different calibers affect the target
  • how to aim ahead so that the bullet trajectory and the position of the running boar cross each other
  • or how dry-fire training at home can help you learn how to smoothly swing your rifle all the way to pulling the trigger.
