People can improve both their shooting and shoot management skills at a course run by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) and the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) later this month.
A Shooting for the Future course will be held at the Allerton Project Visitor Centre in Loddington, Leicestershire, on 24th May 2017.
The day will start with a presentation from BASC on improving your shooting and then a talk from GWCT experts on game bird management which maximises shoot productivity and conservation benefits. There will be a guided tour of the GWCT’s showcase game shoot, giving the opportunity to see a shoot run to best practice and ask questions.
The afternoon will focus on shooting skills with BASC-accredited coaches and will cover range judging and patterning. Delegates will have the chance to have their technique analysed using BASC’s state of the art shooting simulator.
The day will finish with a simulated game drive on one of Loddington’s iconic pheasant drives. Participants will be supervised by loaders who will be on hand to provide guidance and assistance.
Peter Marshall from BASC said: “This is an ideal opportunity for shooters of all levels to gain an insight into the best practice in game shooting. Not only will our experts be available with practical hints and tips on shoot management but also help candidates analyse and improve their own shooting skills.”
