About this deal

Each competitor shoots at a single target in turn, but without moving from the stand until all have shot five targets. I cover
a lot of ground and it is important to
stay on top of any pigeon problem that
a farmer may have. With all the kit back in the car and 52 pigeons bagged up, it is time to reflect on the pleasure of the afternoon. In skeet shooting, targets are launched from two houses in somewhat sideways paths that intersect in front of the shooter.

As required by section 16(9) of the 1981 Act, the Secretary of State has consulted with Natural England as to the circumstances in which, in their opinion, general licences may be granted and Natural England has given this advice to the Secretary of State.

It’s a good idea to have your BASC or CPSA membership cards to hand, your shooting insurance certificate and a copy of your shotgun licence. So if you’re going out onto the clay ground here’s a list of useful clay pigeon shooting tips that are relevant for all levels of experience. Stuart Clarke, one of our finest all-round shots, reinforces the importance of reconnaissance and noting the position of the sun and wind direction.

If you use a cage trap, it does not need to satisfy the dimension requirements of section 8(1) of the 1981 Act. Pigeon shooting is an all year round event and we shoot them wherever we find them (they are Britain’s most prolific agricultural pest) and it’s legal to shoot them 7 days a week, 364 days a year. In 2017 due to protests from animal rights groups Inhofe replaced his annual live pigeon shoot with a wild dove hunt. Remember that a standard clay bird launched normally and a woodpigeon in straight and level flight both fly at about 50mph. Any day starts with anticipation, which evolves as the event and finally becomes a happy memory; no one can take that away.

Pigeon shooting can be exciting, at times frustrating and often likened to days spent fishing but we are more likely to shoot good numbers of birds at the times mentioned above. We recommend that you work at a safe distance from the species protected on the European site to avoid disturbing them. We hope that all members and guests enjoy the Forums and feel free to ask questions, contribute information and join in on the active debates and discussion. Each general licence has its own terms and conditions, which collectively revolve around protecting and conserving the public and the environment. In 2015 a drone operated by an animal rights group was shot down while flying over Inhofe's fundraiser that was being held at a remote ranch.

If the gun points where you are looking, you can have feet incorrectly positioned and still kill your bird.

With a 32-yard rise and a fast going-away bird he has only a second to shoot before it clears the fence. My simple test for length of pull is to look at the rear arm and the hand holding the grip – my own or someone else’s – and note the angle between lower and upper arm at the elbow. Actually, anticipation is such a great part of any sporting day and started as soon as the farmer phoned. Its Ultimate Steel 65mm/21/2in 30g No 5 shot load is suitable for any nitro-proofed sideby- side and uses a ‘Greencore’ wad, which breaks down with microbes in the soil. We’d chugalong in his battered old blue Land Rover, the back fullof camouflaged nets, poles, sacks with decoy dead birdsand the ancient five gallon oil drums beaten by theravages of time which acted as our seats.
