I just started reading Seal Team Six. The author says US Navy Seals are trained NOT to look directly at their target until ready to shoot them. This is because unlike animals, humans have a sixth sense that means they may pick up the sniper!

Interesting .Cats don't look you directly in the eye either,unless they are very tame,as direct eye contact means they are challenging to a fight .

Miss me?

I imagine that it also keeps the shooter from considering for long on the humanity of a target.  Even deadly enemies are apt to invoke pity.

There are other legitimate reasons.

If I set up a quarter mile from you with a sniper rifle, you'd never know what hit you whether I looked at you or not.

I'm sure I wouldn't but what are the other reasons? I ask because I hunt. (feral goats and Foxes mostly)

Animals have it to. I am a bow hunter and you must not look at the animal while stalking it. Rupart sheldrake has done impressive research on this.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Native Americans knew it aswell. I learned it studying native American bow hunting techniques even experimented with it in the field.

Sheldrake has done research on this.

You get you target. Line up your shot. A wait for the right moment to put the trigger. You don't look at your target as human. You think of it just being a target nothing more. That book doesn't tell you everything a SEAL Team 6.
SEALTeam 6 is the beat of the best. You don't get assigned to SEAL Team 6. You have to try out of it.
