The Beginner Game Day Course
The Beginner Game Day Course is a two-day experience geared to give you a full understanding of the components of a British tradition that is rooted in heritage.
Day 1: A full day of intense instruction at Prescott Shooting School under the guidance of Daniel and his team of top game shooting instructors.
1. A gun safety and handling brief will be followed by talks on game shooting etiquette, shooting techniques, footwork & gun mounting. You will be taught on a variety of driven and crossing targets finished off with a realistic driven flush of clay targets. This simulates a real game drive to get used to handing the gun effectively and safely in an environment more like the shooting field than a clay shooting stand. All that you have leant throughout the day can be put to the test before the real thing the following day.
2. Breakfast, Lunch and afternoon tea is included along with talks from Daniel on the role of the beating & picking up teams, game shooting attire, cartridges & guns.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of this course?

All clients taking the course will have learnt to a high level all safety and etiquette requirements that would be expected of anyone in the shooting field and learnt various shooting techniques and be proficient and shooting driven game. All clients leave the course gaining the confidence and experience to solely go into the shooting field whether it be a corporate day or joining a syndicate and enjoy their sport to the fullest potential.
What does Prescott offer something like this?
We love and take pride in introducing clients to game shooting watching them evolve and enjoy a sport that we are very passionate about.
Can anyone participate?
Yes everyone is welcome to take part in the course but we do recommend some basic level of shooting experience or taking some private lessons leading up to the course if you are only just starting to learn to shoot so that you get the most out of the course.
Do I need a licence and my own gun?
No, you don’t need a licence or a gun to take part as we can provide all equipment and you
will be under the guidance of an instructor at all times when shooting. We do however highly recommend applying for your licence if you want to take up the sport as this will allow you to eventually go out shooting without an instructor and be fully insured.
What is next?
The course provides all the confidence and skill needed to shoot in-game in just 2 days. Many clients successfully going on to join syndicates and attend corporate days in the same season. Prescott offers a novice game day in November which most beginner game day clients move on to after this course.
