He did specify direction. If you picture a clock with a 24" diameter set 50 yards away, he has to aim on the edge of the clock, at 9 oclock, to hit the bull. Kind of backwards, but I think I get it.

So if you aim at the bull, you would be hitting 3 oclock, 12" out to the right. You need to move your rear sight to the left. If your rear sight is fixed, you need to move the front sight to the right. If the front sight is fixed, you already know what to do, and that's called kentucky windage. As Pahoo said, you may get it better by adjusting the load (powder, ball, patch, etc.). Have fun, good luck!
Liberty and freedom often offends those who understand neither.
