60 Bird Sporting Clay Shoot Redbournbury Herts 31/03/18 Starts 12:30

Recommended Posts

Despite snow falling and laying a surprising total of 27 guns turned up for the shoot which was again a quite a challenging shoot. 

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. 

NEXT SHOOT 31/03/18  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.

£16 for a 60 bird Sporting Clay shoot. £13 for a second round. SGC required.

NOTE: Fibre wad cartridges only, max shot size 7. Rio 28g 8s are available for £5:00 / box of 25. Can be bought in bulk (£50/250)(£200/1000).

Shoot starts at 12:30, currently last ticket is 15:00. (Last ticket time extends to 16:00 as the daylight hours increase 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.


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.


The sight 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. Work is starting on improving the surface of the gravel lane to try and fill in the the pot holes and puddles.

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, 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.
