BASC Young Shot member Sophie, 14, went on an evening flight on the North Somercotes marsh with her gundog Millie who she trained all by herself.

She brought down a few mallard that day with a 12 bore, which Millie swiftly retrieved. Well done both, you make an amazing team!

Never shot before but would like to have a go? We run great Young Shots events for any level of experience throughout the country.

You can find an event in your area on the Young Shots event’s page.
