  1. Despite the snow, 24 guns came to Redbournbury for the shoot on Saturday 02/02/2019. The snow wasn't a big problem, it was the bright sunshine on some of the stands that interfered with seeing some of the clays. If you got the line of the clay right and swung the gun through, you could still hit the clays going past the sun. We are seeing more and more new faces as a result of word of mouth recommendations. All say it is an enjoyable and friendly shoot. If you have no-one to come with, there is always a group to join to take you around the ground. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing. Now we can start looking forward to the days getting longer. The ford remains low, not that there are usually many issues with it. But some people need reassuring. NEXT SHOOT 16/02/19 STARTS 12:30, last card 15:00. The shoots will continue to be held every 2nd Saturday right through the year. All new shooters will receive a mug listing the shoot dates for 2019. £16 for a 60 bird Sporting Clay shoot. £13 for a second round. SGC required. NOTE: Fibre wad cartridges only, max shot size 7. Cartridges are available for £5:00 / box of 25. Can be bought in bulk (£50/250)(£200/1000) if stocks allow. Shoot starts at 12:30, currently last ticket is 15:00. (Last ticket time extends to 16:00 with the daylight hours increased through Spring/Summer). Safety Equipment must be worn: Hat, Safety Glasses, Ear Defenders. Semi-automatic Shotguns: If not carried in a slip, a breech flag MUST be used. Only 2 cartridges are to be loaded when the gun is in use. Safety Tape: Tape is used to mark off all areas where shooters MUST not cross. To do so could result in them being hit by other shooters. The shoot is held over 6 Stands offering a variety of targets, using Standard, Midi, Rabbit and Battue clays and are shaped by the features of the scenic ground. No two shoots are the same. The site is on a flood plane, so can be wet and muddy underfoot, walking/hunting/welly boots are advised. Tea and coffee is included on the ticket. Full English Breakfast Bowls, Bacon rolls, Doughnuts, Chocolate and Soft Drinks are available for purchase. Ample parking. WC. The site is best approached from the Harpenden to St Albans Road (A1081) via Beesonend Lane. Follow the Brown Fishery and Black and White Shoot signs down the lane for 1 mile. At the ford turn right and continue along the lane to the site. The short length of ford to drive through is only inches deep. The fishermen that come to the site never have any problems. 13/14 days the site functions as a day ticket fishery for Trout (Lake 1 and R.Ver) and Mixed Coarse Fishery (Lake 2). Want to try fly fishing for trout or coarse fishing for carp, tench, barbel, chub, bream, perch, roach and rudd? Taster sessions can be arranged. Lake and Chalk Stream Trout fishing for £15!!!

  2. 37 guns came to the shoot at Redbournbury held on 19/01/19.

  4. 27 guns came to the first 2019 shoot at Redbournbury held on 05/01/19.

  6. Thanks for your continued support. See you on the 29th. We will promise to keep the traps topped up. Best regards Martin
  7. "Twas the shoot before Christmas And all round the ground 41 guns could be heard Was this their best round?" 41 guns came to the 22/12/18 shoot at Redbournbury. Evidence that the novelty of shopping for presents had more than worn thin. It was muddy underfoot but shooters know this and come prepared. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing. However the nights are drawing in, so don't leave it too late.

  8. On Saturday 08th December 2018 only 18 guns turned up to shoot. After recent rain it was pretty muddy underfoot in places, so always bring your boots. We are hoping that all the Christmas shopping will be done by the next shoot to be held on 22/12/18. There is then a Christmas Shoot being held on 29/12/18.

  9. On Saturday 24th November 2018 the weather conspired to dampen the afternoon somewhat. After recent rain it was pretty muddy underfoot in places, so always bring your boots. Numbers shooting were down, probably with Christmas fast approaching, there was a lot of shopping to be dragged out too. Hopefully priorities will win through for the next shoot. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing. However the nights are drawing in, so don't leave it too late.

  11. On Saturday 10th November 2018 the weather conspired to dampen the afternoon somewhat. OK the sun became less of a problem but the deluge was a poor substitute. 23 guns turned up to shoot and again the six stands were well received. Newer faces were more evident than the old reliable ones. They will be back when they have the time. So it bodes well for future shoots.. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing. However the nights are drawing in, so don't leave it too late.

  12. On Saturday 27th October 2018 there was bright sunshine up until 30 minutes before the shoot started. This is never helpful as the shooting area faces west. Suddenly a bank of cloud appeared and the potential problem went away. 35 guns turned up to shoot and many said that they enjoyed the challenge of the six stands. There were quite a few new faces on the day which is encouraging. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing. The lack of rain is also keeping the ford low, not that there are usually many issues with it if it gets higher. But some people need reassuring.

  13. GET SOME MUCH NEEDED PRACTICE IN READINESS FOR THE NEW GAME SEASON. On Saturday 13th October 2018 the strong winds made many of the targets very tricky and sometimes unpredictable. 31 guns turned up to shoot and enjoyed the challenge of the six stands.

  14. GET SOME MUCH NEEDED PRACTICE IN READINESS FOR THE NEW GAME SEASON. On Saturday 29th September 2018 we had another bright, sunny day, although the wind was a bit gusty at times. 39 guns turned up to shoot and enjoyed the challenge of the six stands. See the previous posting for the comments of two of the guns attending. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing. The lack of rain is also keeping the ford low, not that there are usually many issues with it if it gets higher. But some people need reassuring. NEXT SHOOT 13/10/18 STARTS 12:30 The shoots will continue to be held every 2nd Saturday right through the year. New shooters will receive a mug listing the shoot dates for 2018 (if there are still any left). £16 for a 60 bird Sporting Clay shoot. £13 for a second round. SGC required. NOTE: Fibre wad cartridges only, max shot size 7. Cartridges are available for £5:00 / box of 25. Can be bought in bulk (£50/250)(£200/1000) if stocks allow. Shoot starts at 12:30, currently last ticket is 15:00. (Last ticket time extends to 16:00 with the daylight hours increased through Spring/Summer). Safety Equipment must be worn: Hat, Safety Glasses, Ear Defenders. Semi-automatic Shotguns: If not carried in a slip, a breech flag MUST be used. Only 2 cartridges are to be loaded when the gun is in use. Safety Tape: Tape is used to mark off all areas where shooters MUST not cross. To do so could result in them being hit by other shooters. The shoot is held over 6 Stands offering a variety of targets, using Standard, Midi, Rabbit and Battue clays and are shaped by the features of the scenic ground. No two shoots are the same. The site is on a flood plane, so can be wet and muddy underfoot, walking/hunting/welly boots are advised. Tea and coffee is included on the ticket. Full English Breakfast Bowls, Bacon rolls, Doughnuts, Chocolate and Soft Drinks are available for purchase. Ample parking. WC. The site is best approached from the Harpenden to St Albans Road (A1081) via Beesonend Lane. Follow the Brown Fishery and Black and White Shoot signs down the lane for 1 mile. At the ford turn right and continue along the lane to the site. The short length of ford to drive through is only inches deep. The fishermen that come to the site never have any problems. 13/14 days the site functions as a day ticket fishery for Trout (Lake 1 and R.Ver) and Mixed Coarse Fishery (Lake 2). Want to try fly fishing for trout or coarse fishing for carp, tench, barbel, chub, bream, perch, roach and rudd? Taster sessions can be arranged. Lake and Chalk Stream Trout fishing for £15!!! Brown Trout to 4lb in the river (catch and release only). Note: The Brown Trout River Season is now CLOSED until April 2019.
