Specialising in sporting clays and game shooting, Sam is popular for his calm, thoughtful and uncomplicated approach to coaching. Whether you are a newcomer to shooting or an experienced shot, Sam can help you achieve your goals by providing dedicated and tailored tuition.

A successful clay and game shot, Sam devotes valuable time to his clients during “out of season”, educating and developing their skills on the clay ground in preparation for the game season. During the game season you’ll find Sam loading for, mentoring and coaching his clients in the field.

Basing his coaching on the important fundamentals of shotgun shooting; footwork, posture, gun mount/fit and choosing the correct technique for hitting the target, Sam strives to gain the maximum from every client.

A. Lord (Client) – “….An experienced game and clay shot myself, my lesson with Sam was simply simple. He slowed my technique down which strangely gave me more time on the targets we were shooting. A thoroughly good and informative lesson that helped me no end, thank you……”

Having his first shooting lesson at the age of eleven, Sam has valuable experience and knowledge in both clay and game shooting. If you would like more information please contact Sam using the below methods:
