Clay Pigeon Shooting
Experience the thrill of Clay pigeon shooting at Coniston Shooting Ground - one of the UK’s finest shooting grounds - situated close to the market town of Skipton on the picturesque Coniston Estate which encompasses 1400 acres of stunning Yorkshire Dales scenery.
Everyone is welcome to try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, which is becoming ever more popular especially with women and children. The handpicked, qualified and expert team of instructors can accommodate individuals or groups from the complete novices to experienced shooters.
The shooting ground is impeccably maintained and boasts a number of shooting stands to suit all abilities. The target clays simulate high birds, rabbits, springing teals and much, much more. For game shooters, an 86 foot tower has recently been built, which houses several traps which simulate game birds. It is perfect for those wishing to further their confidence as some of the layouts are particularly challenging – even for an expert!
Your clay pigeon experience starts in the grounds clubhouse, where your instructor will run through a health and safety briefing followed by a gun fit and eye dominance check. You will then be shown how to handle a shotgun correctly.
After providing you with the correct safety equipment you will be ready to shoot your first clay. Lasting approx 90 minutes your experience will cover several stands with different targets. Over the duration of the lesson you will shoot 35 clays.
