Clay pigeon shooting is the art of shooting at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons or clay targets, with a shotgun.
Everyone! Clay pigeon shooting is currently enjoyed by 8 to 80 year olds, both male and female. You don't need any experience of shooting at all, our expert instructors will guide you all the way.
In any form of shooting SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT. You will receive full instructions on safety from an instructor. Whether you're a complete novice with no equipment or an experienced shot the same rules apply. Alcohol must not be consumed before or during shooting.
Simply the best. In our superb woodland setting we can offer you the pleasures of up to 24 English Sporting stands and also the challenging high towers and grouse butts and other simulted game shooting and we also have up to 10 beginner or novice stands on any given day
Of course - each stand is secure and supervised. So feel free to bring a few friends. You never know they will almost certainly want to try for themselves. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the shooting grounds.
