Young Shots activity 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.

The day will include;

  • Clay shooting lesson with a BASC coach (all equipment, cartridges and PPE will be supplied, however, if youngsters have their own gun or equipment please feel free to bring it along).
  • Introduction to deer stalking, from deer species to conservation then the opportunity to practice shot placement on the range with an air rifle (under tuition from a BASC coach)
  • A demonstration on rural vermin control, learn about species balance in the countryside and how animals are harvested for food or controlled to benefit other species.
  • Home loading demonstration, learn about the different types of ammunition and watch a black powder gun demonstration.

Adults are welcome to stay throughout the day and hot drink refreshments will be available.

Note: This is predominately a outdoor day, so participants will need to wear appropriate warm clothing. Lunch is NOT provided so you will also need to bring a packed lunch.
