“I derive a great deal of pleasure introducing people to this great sport of ours. From the novice breaking their first targets, through coaching the experienced shot on the more challenging target presentations, to identifying the problems that creep into the game and clay shooters repertoire over the years. I am always striving to improve the shooting experience whether by adding specialist clay traps or the addition of all-weather stands. It is an ongoing commitment.”

Mark was only 8 when he was handed his first air rifle and swiftly moved onto his first shotgun at 12. He has a passion for shooting which has not diminished over 40 years.

Mark has shot clays, game and wildfowl, he stalks and has been Head Keeper on a large Somerset shoot as well as loading on Exmoor. He also enjoys training and working gun dogs.

Now, as a BASC Accredited Shotgun Coach Mark is able to share his enthusiasm for the sport by providing his experience and knowledge to others.

But what makes him happiest is helping someone to achieve their goal of proficiency with a shotgun as it provides not only ability in this area but a confidence which can be far reaching.

Confidence from shooting finds its way into other areas of life as Mark has seen this with novice guns old and young alike.

He works in all areas of the UK and is available for clay ground tuition.

In Somerset he has access to three coaching grounds to suit the individual needs.

Mark especially enjoys coaching guns on a day’s driven game shoot. Here he can offer a full service including loading, coaching as well as advice on etiquette.

My shooting experience commenced many years ago when, as a boy, I learnt to shoot air rifle. When I commenced work, my interest in shooting was encouraged because my employers still retained the old Home Guard rifle and pistol range that was on their premises and kept its status as an ‘approved range’. This range was open daily so there was no shortage of practise opportunity. I shot small bore and full bore rifle and pistol competitively.
Changing jobs, I lost the use of the rifle and pistol range so moved my interest to shotgun shooting. I am primarily a game shooter, mainly walked up rough shooting, but given the chance I will gladly spend time in a hide on the foreshore.
