Win a £25,000 shoot­ing prize!

Sporting Shooter - - News -

Tick­ets for one of the most cov­eted prizes in field­sports are now on sale. The Game & Wildlife Con­ser­va­tion Trust’s (GWCT) 2018 Gun Draw in­cludes a day’s driven grouse shoot­ing, a new pair of 12-bore shot­guns, a three-hour fit­ting ses­sion and 500 game car­tridges – all worth £25,000.

The pop­u­lar draw sees hun­dreds of shoot­ing en­thu­si­asts take part each year, some of whom buy tick­ets for the first time, such as last year’s win­ner.

Mark Dea­con, from Bed­ford­shire, was thrilled to have won such a fan­tas­tic prize. He said: “It was the first time I had en­tered such a com­pe­ti­tion with a prize value any­thing like this. I have 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 that have said how pleased they are for me and en­cour­aged by a lo­cal Bed­ford­shire boy to have won.”

By tak­ing part in the draw, you will also be sup­port­ing GWCT’s sci­en­tific re­search pro­grammes for game and wildlife con­ser­va­tion. The Trust aims to en­sure a thriv­ing coun­try­side, rich in game and other wildlife and be­lieves its re­search can go a long way to achiev­ing this.

You will be help­ing them to tell a more bal­anced story about game man­age­ment by fund­ing new re­search to mea­sure and pub­lish the pos­i­tive in­flu­ence it has on our coun­try­side.
