Improve your shooting with BASC.

BASC is going to run a number of ‘improve your shooting day’ courses designed to help shooters improve their success in the field. These will be held throughout the UK this coming autumn, so there should be one near you! Check out the BASC website for further details or contact shooting standards if there is not one listed in your area.

The course is based on a similar program run in America by the Co-operative North American Shotgun Education Program (CONSEP). The CONSEP course, which is run over a week, has shown that education and tuition of shooters can result in improved results in the feild and a reduced wounding loss during shooting.

‘Improve your shooting day’ will cater for up to 21 delegates, with reduced rates for BASC members. The one day course begins with an introductory session highlighting the issues surrounding wounding in the field and the 15 factors involved in poor shooting success. Shooters will then take part in a shooting skill, range-judging and patterning exercises to illustrate some of the issues that lead to poor shooting.

The afternoon session focuses on improving success and ability in the field. Delegates will analyse their shotgun patterns and the ballistic requirements to effectively kill their quarry with qualified staff and coaches. They will practise a technique called sub-tending, to better judge the range of their quarry and shoot within their personal range abilities. Qualified BASC coaches also spend 2 or 3 hours with each group to improve their shooting ability on clays and by using the state of the art ST-2 shooting Simulator

The day will end with a constructive feedback session with BASC Staff and BASC coaches on hand to answer any of your questions and take on board your feedback.

If you are interested in taking part in one of these courses please book early to prevent disappointment. The course will cost £65 to BASC members and £100 for non-members, this includes the cost of clays, cartridges, lunch and refreshments.
