The UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), will host two ‘Improve your Shooting’ days, designed to help shooters improve their success in the field. The events will be hosted at Brookbank Shooting Ground, Cheddar, Somerset, on 31st August, and at Newnham Park, Plympton, Plymouth, Devon, on 7th September.
They will each cater for 20 people, with reduced rates for BASC members. Participants will take part in shooting, range-judging and patterning exercises.
The afternoon sessions will include exercises to help participants improve success and ability in the field. Participants will analyse their shotgun patterns and practice techniques to better judge the range of their quarry and shoot within their personal abilities. Qualified BASC coaches will spend time with the participants to improve their shooting ability on clays. The day will end with a constructive feedback session with BASC staff and BASC coaches on hand to answer any questions.
Jamie Stewart, BASC’s South West regional director, said: “The course is based on a similar program run in America by the Co-operative North American Shotgun Education Program (CONSEP). The CONSEP course, which is run over a week, has shown that education and tuition of shooters can result in improved results in the field and a reduced wounding loss during shooting. If you are interested in taking part in one of these courses please book early to prevent disappointment.”
Places cost £95 for BASC members and £125 for non-members, which includes the cost of clays, cartridges, lunch and refreshments. Please call BASC’s South West office on 01823 480903 to book. ENDS
