25/06/2017 - Shoot Summary

A drisley and damp day in the hills, but a good shoot nonetheless.

Stand 1 – Pair of Driven Away Birds
A well-presented pair of birds, not the most difficult of targets providing you took them early, watching them disappear beyond the main field was a recipe for disaster.

Stand 2 – Left-Right Looper followed on report by Fast Rabbit down the wall.
I love Loopers, presented close in they make lovely big target being presented side on. The Rabbit was pretty quick but simple enough running out a little from the wall.

Stand 3 – Pair of Right-Left Osprey’s
These birds looked awful; most shooters approached this stand with some trepidation but were pleasantly surprised. What appeared a pair of nightmare birds actually fell pretty easily, the secret being taking the leading bird early which then gave you loads of time on the second one.

Stand 4 – Away Bird followed on report by Springing Teal
The Away bird a fairly staple bird on this stand, taking this quickly was the key to breaking them. The high flying teal looks more difficult than they actually were; some people taking them on the rise others on the fall 10ft off the floor, great to watch.

Stand 5 – High Right-Left Crossing Bird followed on report by a fast climbing Away Bird.
The crossing bird again looked difficult but fell fairly easily to a concentrated and steady approach; a very satisfying bird. The away bird appeared from your feet as though startled on a walk-up. I don’t know what was going on with this one as what should have been a straightforward bird caught loads of you out.

Top gun this time was Andy Moore with an impressive 45/50.

A number of you turned in personal bests:

Hannah Howard 36/50
Ryan Jenkins 28/50
Catherine Longton 33/50

Well done you guys, look forward to seeing you all at the next shoot on the 9th July.
