Clay Pigeon Shooting in Dorset – head to Dorset’s finest shooting ground to take aim at the clays! Set within 50 acres of heathland and conifer plantation you’ll be firing at the clays deep in the rolling countryside near Wareham between Dorchester and Poole.
Founded in 1995 by accomplished shooter and Dorset local Graham Brown this school is still family run today and prides itself on having been named Clay Shooting School of the Year. Graham thinks this is partly due to the unique topography of the terrain here in Dorset with 50 acres of contoured land being perfect for creating very naturalistic clay pigeon target scenarios with enough space for a variety of set ups from skeet and simulated game to English and FITASC sporting.
As for the target stands they are dotted around the ground and include all weather covered ones a high tower and those suitable for disabled access too. When it comes to equipment this Dorset clay pigeon shooting school prides itself on having a complete range of shotguns and ammunition. As this experience is open to shooters as young as 12 there are guns (such as a 20 gauge) that are deliberately lighter and easier to use loaded with low recoil subsonic cartridges.
After a welcome your clay pigeon instructor will outline the lesson and go through all the safety aspects before you can go off shooting at this very professional centre in Dorset. Your expert tutor will give you advice on technique throughout and you will have the chance to shoot at clays launched at different speeds and angles. The lesson takes place on the practice site and if you progress well you will move on to end your session on the school’s main shooting course. This Dorset-based venue is open all year round for clay pigeon and simulated game shooting for individuals or small groups.
