Ladies Woodpigeon Progression Day

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

Ladies have you ever wanted to try woodpigeon shooting?

Peter Theobald the Woodpigeon Shooting Guru and writer for the sporting gun invites you to come along for a day full of hints, tips and guidance.

You will start the morning in the classroom learning about the purpose of shooting woodpigeons, the law regarding the subject, quarry identification and range judging. You will then move outside to watch a Gundog demonstration, get involved in building hides and setting out decoys.

We will then stop for afternoon tea and cake.

You will then go back out to shoot simulated clay targets with a shotgun and paper targets from a hide with an air rifle whist being coached by BASC and Peter. 

Please note there will be no live woodpigeon shooting.

All of the above as well as the opportunity to dress and taste the quarry of the day.

At the end of the day there will be a luxury three course meal in the shoot room where we can discuss the day and answer any further questions.

The day is fun and informative, a great way for ladies to become the ultimate woodpigeon decoyers.

Join us on the 16th August for an action packed day you will remember.

BASC members and non members welcome.

Cost: £45pp member £60pp non member
