If you’re looking for a fantastic outdoor activity within earshot of West Yorkshire clay pigeon shooting is the perfect choice as you get the thrill of being a clay hot shot and all in lovely countrified surroundings. The centre offers a whole range of shooting disciplines simulating (amongst others) high birds rabbits and springing teal through a variety of different traps.

Each session lasts approximately one and a half hours and you begin with a safety briefing which ensures maximum protection and enjoyment for both you and other clay shooting enthusiasts. Fully trained instructors from this popular Yorkshire shooting school will then show you the skills needed to be a good marksman so you can showcase your best clay skills in this scenic Yorkshire setting.

For single-person bookings lessons are usually conducted one-to-one with an instructor. For two or more participants you could be joined by others to form a group of up to five people. However this Yorkshire school always ensures you will have at least 30 clay pigeons per person to shoot at regardless of group size.

You can practise your aim with a selection of different clays. There is the opportunity to attempt some more advanced game-shooting techniques using an oscillating trap to mimic the flight of grouse and partridge. The ground also boasts an 86ft tower housing several traps if you feel that the ground-based targets are too easy a shot you can go seriously aerial!

What we love most about this clay pigeon shooting in Yorkshire is that it is unhurried. There is a short interval timetabled for halfway through your lesson so you can take stock and discuss your clay shooting progress with one of these highly qualified West Yorkshire-based instructors before going back to the firing range for more faux-feathery exploits. And worth noting if you are a small group of budding clay pigeon shooters this Skipton school offers excellent discounted prices on vouchers priced per person for three to 12 people.
