Introduction to Game Shooting July 2017

April 28, 2017


Driven game shooting is an accessible sport, giving a unique entrée to the countryside for many thousands of people each year. Outside Days and Farlows have collaborated in the design of this course to give insight and knowledge into a sport that is at once traditional and increasingly popular.

This relaxed and sociable course is designed to explain the rules, practice and etiquette of driven shooting. At the same time, we’ll show you a side of the sport that may experienced shots won’t have seen with a unique opportunity to explore the underbelly of a noted Hampshire sporting estate and get up close and personal with the gamekeeper.

Driven shooting is a sport that provides enormous

benefits to the environment as well as making a real and valuable contribution to the rural economy – a hidden side our behind-the-scenes shoot visit will share.

Give us a day and we’ll give you the skills to confidently accept those shooting invitations, secure in the knowledge you’ll be a welcome guest on any peg and a credit to your host.
