Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

TIP 20: CONTROL YOUR BREATHING
 
What’s the most difficult shot to make? I’d say it is when your heart is pounding and you’re out of breath. Hunters and competitive shooters both know this feeling. It occurs when you have to sprint to your next shooting position in a match or when you need to make the final push to the ridge of the mountain at last light. With your lungs working like a bellows and your heart pounding for all it’s worth, do what biathletes do to settle down before shooting.
 
STEP 1 Take three deep, controlled breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. This will lower your heart rate and steady your aim.
 
STEP 2 As you get ready to shoot, let the air out of your lungs, pausing at the bottom of your breathing cycle. In this relaxed state, you have about 7 seconds to fire before the lack of oxygen affects your vision and induces muscle tremors.
 
STEP 3 If you can’t manage the shot in this time, don’t force it—you’ll only miss. Take three more deep breaths to reset and try again.
