Shooting for the Future is a two-day course, with the first day dedicated to shooting skill and the second covering shoot management. Each day can be booked individually for £100 (£65 for GWCT or BASC members), or those wishing to attend both can book both days for £170 (£120 for GWCT or BASC members). All fees include the cost of clays, cartridges, lunch and refreshments.
GWCT and BASC members wishing to take advantage of the reduced rate should contact Lynda Ferguson on 01425 651013 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to book these tickets.
BASC and the GWCT have teamed up to offer a new course aimed at improving shooting skills and shoot management.
The next Shooting for the Future event will take place at Ripley Castle, North Yorkshire, on 8 and 9 May. The first day will and concentrate on shooting techniques and the second day on shoot management techniques. You can take the two days together, or just book one day.
Recent GWCT research has led to the development of guidelines for gamebird release that maximise broader conservation benefit while minimising any damage caused by the birds themselves. Following the guidelines will help shoots to maintain the health and welfare of their birds, ensuring good returns and high quality sport. These issues will be addressed during the morning presentations on Day two, followed by an afternoon visit to a working shoot, to see hands-on how to put the guidelines into practice.
