The GWCT will be hosting a Scottish Young Shooters Day at the home of our senior Scottish advisor Hugo Straker. Hugo lives in East Lothian, and included in the day (for 12-15 year old boys and girls) there will be shooting tuition and clay shooting, and a game management tour - taking in predator control including a tunnel trapping competition, feeding, habitat, pheasant poults in a release pen and duck flight ponds. Hugo will skin and gut a rabbit and pluck a pigeon before each of the youngsters will also be tasked with preparing carcases for the table.
Held in association with Stuart Elworthy of Mavis Hall Park Shooting School.
The GWCT is enormously grateful to the Norman Clarke fund, which has provided funding for this series of courses for youngsters. The late Norman Clarke was an immensely popular shooting instructor for Holland & Holland.
