The day, organised by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), working with Brimslade Farm will give young people a taste of countryside activities including fly-fishing for trout, the opportunity to have a shotgun lesson and the chance to try air-rifle shooting with BASC-accredited coaches. Visitors will also learn about gundogs, hide-building, pigeon decoying and wildfowling.
David Gervers, BASC’s South West regional director, said: “We are pleased to be in Wiltshire for this event which offers a range of countryside activities and we are expecting a high demand for places.”
The event at starts at 9:15 am and costs £20. The day is open to both BASC members and non-members. Places are limited so advanced booking is essential.
All BASC Young Shots who get a friend to book a place will be entered into a draw with the chance to win one of a range of prizes from a shooting DVD from Westcountry Films to a free place on a BASC Young Shot Progression Day.
