The Royal Berkshire Shooting School urges game shooters to practice
More game shots need to invest in shooting lessons, that’s the message from Dylan Williams, the Managing Director of the Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
The comment was made in response to a survey by Guns on Pegs and Strutt & Parker, which revealed 66% of Guns never have a shooting lesson. Nearly 4,000 people contributed the annual survey, which asked both Guns and shoot owners a series of questions in order to paint a clear picture of today’s game shooting market and trends.
“Whatever level you shoot at you’ll benefit from a lesson,” commented Dylan, adding: “Having a lesson with a qualified instructor before a shoot day not only shows respect to your host but also your quarry. Finessing your swing, ironing out bad habits and ensuring you’re fully prepared will only help further enjoy your day out in the field. For the price of just two driven pheasants, you can receive an hour’s private tuition from one of our seven full-time instructors. Alternatively, if you book a day’s game shooting through us, the day will be run by our instructors.”
The survey also revealed that 85% of respondents prefer shooting high birds. “The RBSS has the ideal set-up for getting your eye in. For just £50 you can enter the Stratstone Super 7 Challenge, which will give you 50 warm-up birds on the grounds and two goes at shooting 25 birds off our 120-foot tower. Not only can you have a practice, you might just end up winning a £100k supercar!”
