HELEN'S TIPS

Sporting Gun - - GAME SHOOTING -

The best way to avoid nerves is to be or­gan­ised. Pack the night be­fore, and al­low plenty of time for you to get to the venue.

Far bet­ter to be safe than sorry: no mat­ter how ex­pe­ri­enced a shot you are, nor how ex­cit­ing the drive, there is never any ex­cuse for not be­ing safe.

Ask be­fore you take a dog. And if you do take one, be cer­tain you can rely on their steadi­ness at the peg.

Say thank you, to host, keeper, beat­ers and pick­ers-up. They may all love what they do as much as you, but courtesy goes a long way.
