Shoot­ing jack­pot up for grabs

Sporting Gun - - Snapshots - By Keith Reynolds

Hun­dreds of hope­fuls are just days away from dis­cov­er­ing if they have won an in­cred­i­ble shoot­ing prize in the 2018 Game & Wildlife Con­ser­va­tion Trust (GWCT) Gun Draw. The win­ner of the prize draw, which will take place at GWCT head­quar­ters in Ford­ing­bridge on Fri­day, 21 De­cem­ber, will re­ceive a day’s driven grouse shoot­ing, a new pair of 12-bore shot­guns, a three-hour fit­ting ses­sion and 500 game car­tridges — worth a to­tal of £25,000. Tick­ets cost £50 and you still have a chance to win — just visit Last year’s win­ner, Mark Dea­con from Bed­ford­shire, said: “It was the first time I had en­tered such a com­pe­ti­tion with a prize any­thing like this. I had never shot grouse be­fore and, as it is some­thing I had promised I would do, I thought it may be worth a punt. “The guns are a mas­sive bonus. I am re­ally hum­bled by my fel­low Guns and shoot­ing ac­quain­tances who have said how pleased they are for me and en­cour­aged by a lo­cal Bed­ford­shire boy to have won.”
