Have you ever wanted to try game shooting but unsure where to start? Or would you just like to ensure that when you attend a shoot you are doing the right thing?
Join us on 11th October at Grimsthorpe Estate Shooting Ground where we will teach you all about what to expect on a day’s game shooting.

We will cover:
– Best practice
– Quarry recognition
– How to dress and how not to dress! Is tweed really necessary?
– Gun safety, how to hold your gun, loading your gun
– What bird is yours?
– How to tip at the end of a good day
– How to select the right cartridge and choke for the intended species. Do you need to change chokes between drives?
– The use of gundogs, what breed is best?
– What do beaters and gamekeepers do?

We will then check your guns before heading out to shoot various types of sustainable ammunition at driven targets.
