Instruction For The Clay & Wing Shot

Few things are more satisfying than a perfect shot. The skill required is a product of sound basic techniques, perfect practice and smoothly honed reactions but these don’t come overnight. First, you must know what it is you need to practice; only then can you do something about it. In shooting, as in other Endeavours, ignorance prevents progress.

With access to the widest possible range of clay targets at The Green Acres British Shooting School, all types of Sporting Clay and Wing Shooting presentations can be simulated during lessons.


Whether you are a complete novice, a Seasoned Hunter or a Competition Clay Shooter, time spent at the Shooting school is time well invested, especially in the early stages of a shooting career.


During my time as a professional Instructor I am proud to have taught shooters from all walks of life, young and old, male and female, all with varying amounts of experience.


For the Wing/Game shooter, all types of traditional British and American game birds can be simulated in realistic settings and any particular problem can be addressed and corrected.


For the Clay Shooter, I have a wide range of suitable training targets for both the Sporting Clay and F.I.T.A.S.C enthusiasts to develop their individual skill at all levels.


For the novice shooter, instruction begins in the Clubhouse learning the basic bedrock skills of Correct Gun Mount and Stance.


Then at the right time we move to the School area where Clients will shoot targets that have been specifically designed to develop a correct and proper technique, which will create success and instil confidence in the early stages of the learning process.

All instruction begins in the Clubhouse, spending time covering all the essential
bedrock skills of Correct Gun Mount, Stance, Posture and confirming eye
dominance and resolving any ensuing issues.

Then at the right time we move to the School area where Clients will shoot targets that have been specifically designed to develop their personal skills, a correct and proper technique, that will create success, instil confidence and enable them to shoot to their full potential.

Much has been written about how to hit clay targets or birds effectively with a
shotgun. In simple terms, the shot needs to converge with the target. The great
Robert Churchill understood this and penned the quintessential work "Game
Shooting" in 1955. His idea is best distilled into this thought he wrote, “The shooter should not be conscious of his muzzle, the rib or sight. His eye, or
rather his attention, should be fully occupied with the bird, and, if he holds his gun properly, he will hit whatever he is looking at! Let the hand and eye work in perfect co-ordination without interference from the brain!

Shooting a shotgun is just another hand and eye co-ordinated game, based around our natural ability to point, what we have to do is realise the simplicity of it and learn to consistently line up the barrels of the Shotgun with our eye and use it as a natural extension of our pointing figure without any conscious thought!
