Available: Covid cabin-fever - Field position rifle coaching / Intro to Deer Stalking


Well-Known Member

Summer is coming and hopefully, with Coronavirus departing - what about coming down and enhancing your abilities as a rifleman?

It is a sad fact that obtaining any 'practical' rifle coaching is quite hard to come by in the UK - especially when you are looking for techniques that are biased towards the needs of the mobile deer stalker, as opposed to the long range or safari shooter.

Many of us will purchase a scope, bipod and rifle, drill tiny groups at the range or from a bench - then fail to achieve our best when faced with an opportunity for a shot where intervening cover makes the bipod useless.

Over the years, I have noted many techniques and developed twists on existing shooting methods that allow a noticeable improvement in your accuracy and additionally, the speed with which you can engage a target. Now I am prepared to make an offer that may well appeal to many shooters.

Refine your shooting technique or your money back!

Benefiting either Novice (can provide rifles/ammunition if you do not possess your own equipment) or Experienced shooters, we offer four hours of practical and theoretical marksmanship coaching. £.100

  • We have the use of a private range, and tailor the program to your existing abilities and experience
  • work on zeroing technique on the bench
  • effective use of high and low seats
  • improvised rests and correct usage of many varieties of stalking sticks for all shooting positions
  • short range training using sub-calibre rifles before a consolidation shoot to confirm technique.
  • just north of Axminster in Devon, we are situated in the middle of rich deer country & if you wish to then go out and put into practice your shooting techniques, well, we have plenty deer to cull!

We also have excellent accommodation on site, so arranging a visit is very straight-forward!

What a great-looking set-up. Could be a nice post-Covid treat to oneself. I think we all profit from having an experienced third-party take us back to basics periodically.

I would highly recommend Ian's coaching. He's also got some nice stalking ground too so go get some coaching then put it into practice

Ian is a delightful chap to a;- do buisness with and b;- simply be in the company of.

This offer has got to be one of those "once I see light at the end this C-19 lockdown tunnel" opportunities not to be missed as demand is certain to outstrip availability.
