Game Simulated shooting experience

At Thornicombe, experience all the contours and topography of the 350-acre estate that produces testing targets, there are 9 towers that make the clays higher, faster, and a little more challenging.

Manual trappers are used, so they can alter each individual target as you would expect from a game bird, they can speed them up, slow them down, throw them high or low, or just in a completely different direction!
The guns are all placed a reasonable 21 yards apart so you can steal the occasional neighbors bird!

This day enables each gun to shoot well in excess of 450 shots if they wish, with 8 enjoyable drives and all the refreshments you could wish for including a three-course meal at the end of your exhilarating day!

  • Managed to book at the last minute & was kept up to date via email. When I got to site the team there were great. Ash the instructor was superb & clearly knew his stuff. He even got 2 complete novices who had never held a gun in their life to start shooting clays out of the sky.
