Young Shots Shoot 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.

This is an introduction to game shooting for Young Shots and is ideal for the Young Shot who has previously been clay shooting and is ready for their first live game experience.

The day will include: meeting the keeper to discuss how a shoot is run, driven clay practice with simulated pheasant as well as experiencing both the beating line and live quarry shooting on a drive.

Meet at the barn near Newton Reigney, Penrith CA11 0BW at 9.30am

Each Young Shot will be given a mentor to guide them safely through the day.

You’ll need a shotgun with current certificate, hearing protection, safety glasses and suitable outdoor clothing.

Please bring a packed lunch and refreshments.

Cartridges will be provided.

The cost of this event is £30 and has been subsidised through the BASC North Young Shots fund. Places limited to 20
