The shooting season is almost upon us. Nothing is guaranteed to get the dog more excited than the sight of guns being dusted off and other shooting gear being retrieved from the dark recesses of various cupboards. Very timely then to remind ourselves how to actually shoot our chosen quarry.
Many game shooters will have spent the off season practicing on clays. OK, maybe not many but at least one or two. Whilst clay target clubs are a great way to keep your eye in during the long wait for the start of May they seldom present clays driven over the shooter which is the most common shot with which pheasant shooters are likely to be presented. Even duck shooters may have to deal with a panicked mallard making a bid for safety straight over the maimai. Useful then to be reminded of how to take the shot and this video by Alan Rose tells you everything you need to know.
There’s nothing like trying it out for yourself though, preferably before you find yourself stood on your peg for the first drive of the season or sat in your maimai waiting for dawn on the first weekend in May. Hau Ora Clays still has days available for simulated game practice on flurries of clay targets as the perfect warm up for your driven day or duck shoot.
