Ducks can fly very quickly and pass-shooting tends to be toward the longer shotgun ranges. A duck has the potential to have flown five feet through space in the time it takes for the shot to get there. That means the shooter needs to be shooting about five feet in front of the duck if he wants to bag the duck.
It is similar to throwing a football. The quarterback must throw the football to where the receiver will be, not to where he currently is.
Growing food is the same way. You have to prepare the fields in the early spring if you expect to harvest a meaningful crop in the late summer or in the autumn.

**I about cried when I saw the rock-hard, indoor-stored, large round-bales being used for mulch. But I have to admit, they sure spread more easily than soft, decayed "waste" bales. And if those bales get a half-dozen families gardening then it was a great investment.
