The Leicestershire Wildfowlers Association (LWA) have kindly donated an evening’s wildfowling to young shots. Those attending will have the opportunity to shoot an evening flight for inland wildfowl from a hide under the supervision of an experienced mentor. Before heading out, we will meet at the LWA Priory Water nature reserve where an introduction will be given followed by a presentation on wildfowling and species identification. Do not miss out on this unique opportunity!

Open to BASC Young Shot members who are competent using a shotgun. If the Young Shot is competent but does not own a shotgun please email central@basc.org.uk 

Young Shots will need to bring;

  • Packed lunch and drink
  • Warm and waterproof clothing (jacket and trousers) suitable for outdoor shooting activities. Green or drab colours preferred.
