  1. 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. 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. The ford remains low, not that there are usually many issues with it. But some people need reassuring. NEXT SHOOT 22/12/18 STARTS 12:30, last card 15:00. The CHRISTMAS SHOOT is to be held on 29/12/18. The shoots will continue to be held every 2nd Saturday right through the year. All 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!!! Brown Trout to 4lb in the river (catch and release only). Note: The Brown Trout River Season is now CLOSED until April 2019. See the newly updated Redbournbury Fishery and Sporting Clay website and our Facebook posts.
  2. 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. The ford remains low, not that there are usually many issues with it. But some people need reassuring.

  4. 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. The ford remains low, not that there are usually many issues with it. But some people need reassuring.

  5. 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. NEXT SHOOT 10/11/18 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.

  6. 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. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Wymondley, as ever many thanks for your comments. Browndog, your comments are very much appreciated. Unfortunately I had to be elsewhere on the day after setting up Stands 1-3 on Friday. I am glad the shoot met with your approval. Hope to see you next time. If not, don't forget us. We are there every second Saturday right through the year. As well as the tea, there are cups with the shoot dates printed on them available, also for free. Best regards Martin
  9. GET SOME MUCH NEEDED PRACTICE IN READINESS FOR THE NEW GAME SEASON. On Saturday 15th September 2018 we had another bright, sunny day, although the wind was a bit gusty at times.

  10. GET SOME MUCH NEEDED PRACTICE IN READINESS FOR THE NEXT GAME SEASON. On Saturday 01st September 2018 we were back into the nice weather, although the wind was a bit gusty at times. But that is all part of shooting. 35 guns turned up to shoot, including some of the old regulars who had been absent recently. 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.

    Shotkam Group Buy?

    I have an AimCam and it is a good piece of kit. But a big point is that it is a fixed focus, point of view camera. If the clays are at distance, perhaps against a background (not clear sky), then you often don't get a viewable picture of the clays' flight and the breaking or missing of the clays. You also have to watch the whole footage from when you start to record to when you stop it. The ShotKam gives a closer and clearer view of the flight of the clays, the pellets and the breakages or misses, all in shot sized bites. The wifi option also allows each shot to be analysed and adjustments to be made for the next shot, all information that can help to build consistency in judging speed, lead and breaking clays or hitting game. I use my AimCam for fishing, it has produced some excellent footage of fly fishing for trout and fishing for catfish.
  12. GET SOME MUCH NEEDED PRACTICE IN READY FOR THE NEXT GAME SEASON. Saturday 18th August 2018 was thankfully less hot than previous shoots, but the wind was very blustery which had its affect on some of the targets. Only 25 guns turned up to shoot, summer holidays obviously impacting on the numbers able to attend. On the other hand some of the new faces are now becoming regulars. 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. Saturday 04th August 2018 was again a challenge in the hot sunshine. Especially during the delay while the ceased trap on the tower was repaired. But repaired it was to continue throwing a nice high bird. Only 25 guns turned up to shoot, again some of the regulars were noticeable by their absence. On the other hand some of the new faces are now becoming regulars. Not everyone turns up for the 12:30 start now, so the groups are more spread out and there is less queuing.

  14. Saturday 21st July 2018 was quite a challenge in the bright sunshine. Certainly a day to keep hydrated. Just under 30 guns turned up to shoot, some of the regulars were noticeable by their absence. On the other hand some of the new faces are now becoming regulars. 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.

  15. Saturday 07th July 2018 was another fantastic day for a shoot and thankfully NOT a Penalty Shoot Out. By the time of Redbournbury's next shoot " It will be all over!" Just over 30 guns turned up to shoot and they did just that "Paid, shot and Left" the footy was calling, down the pub no doubt. The work done by the Friends of the River Ver has seen the ford continue to be no deeper than a couple of inches deep. Work on reducing the potholes in the lane has paid off, although the mettled part of the lane is now showing increasing signs of wear and tear.
