Shooting School Founder & Consultant
Dylan founded The Royal Berkshire Shooting School in 1991 and continues to support the business in his consultancy role, often hosting charity events where required and in providing shooting tuition. A countryman through and through, he still has the same enthusiasm for shooting as the boy who held his first gun as a 9-year-old.
The Shooting School and the grounds have been called “immaculate”, “manicured” and “truly stunning”. Some of the most experienced game shots in the land are in awe of both the speed and precision of the clays sent off stands such as The Times Tower and the famous J&B Grouse Stand. All these aspects are the responsibility of Mike and his team, who are truly outstanding in their pride and commitment to the grounds and the presentation of targets.
