Clay Pigeon Shooting
At Hilltop they have a wide range of opportunities for the Clay shooter – from the absolute beginner to the very experienced clay shooter or the Hunter looking to ‘get their eye in’ before the opening of the new season, there is something for everyone.
For beginners and for those of you who have not shot for some time we have the Novice Clay Pigeon Stands. They have traps set up out in the open and under cover from the elements, with flood lighting providing during the winter evenings.
For those that would like to work on their technique or just get a bit of instruction, they have experienced Range Officers always on hand to help.
Archery is ideal to complement the more energetic activities and is available all year round in an indoor range, so the weather need not be a deterrent.
It is on offer to experienced and not so experienced from 16 years of age upwards and is carried out with the Longbow ranging in draw weight from 14lb to 40lb. Both right-hand and left-hand bows are available. Instructors will carefully show each person how to use bow and how to stand and sight correctly before being allowed to start . This is a popular activity and can become quite addictive, as there is always room for improvement.
