The Captains Wing & Clay Combination Day

Find us on facebook

Dates to be announced for the 2016/17 season soon


Wing shooting Clinic & Driven Duck shoot


Our unique Captains Day program brings together the opportunity to spend time with our resident British Wing & Clay Instructor Keith Coyle and then head out to the field to put into practice new knowledge & techniques for driven game shooting, firstly on our purpose designed Simulated Wing shoot and then experience the excitement of a Driven Mallard Drive over our award winning lakes and waterway.


The day begins with an hour’s brief from Keith on the Classic shooting styles and different techniques of the great Robert Churchill & Percy Stanbury, the UK’s very first recognized professional instructors, and will cover the correct method of gun mounting, stance/bodyline and how these vital basics can effect achieving accurate Gun Fit. There will be a practical session on shooting “Gun Down” and a brief look at the correct method of handling for “Double Gunning” (The Two Gun Tango!). Keith will also run through traditional game shooting etiquette and shoot day safety.


From here we move to the Sporting Field where using our purpose built “Trap Wagon” mounting a battery of clay traps we will simulate a real driven game shoot where Guns can put into practice their preferred shooting methods in a realistic scenario.


Following a home cooked game Lunch in the Lodge dining room, Guns will travel to the Lake and take up their Pegs (positions) for the day’s high point which will be an authentic British style Driven Mallard Flight.
