Park Lodge

Four of us went to Park Lodge on Saturday morning. The place looked a picture, not a blade of grass out of place, no scattered cartridge cases to be seen and loads of bins. Loads of stuff to shoot at from basic stuff to more testing birds. The sportrap was excellent too. Immaculate loos, big smiles and made to feel welcome. Four hundred targets and only one no-bird!

Great place. Enjoyed it.

How things should be, I now refuse to go back to places that cannot provide a service that is enjoyable.  :good:

Good news indeed, I always liked the place. Maybe another visit is on the cards

Same here. But they really need to look at their pricing. I can travel simillar distances and get great shooting at much better rates. While ever that's the case, Park Lodge will be somewhere I may go once a year if at all.

I'm sure you will be able to find cheaper shooting somewhere. Clays are only about £60 per thousand anyway so someone will knock them out cheap if you look around.

The days of standing ankle deep in mud with few if any facilities are long gone I'm afraid. If I'm paying the price then I want a tidy ground you can shoot round without wellies, spotless loos and some decent food on offer too.

I agree. I use a few such grounds that have high standards and pay less than I do at Park Lodge. Plenty of good options out there that supply quality and dont charge over the odds.

Where do you use? I find myself at Churchills at Swinton and Park Lodge which are both 35p a clay, I'm in Wakefield as well so always on the look out for somewhere new to try.

I’m also in Wakefield and I’d be interested in recommendations of where to shoot. I’m new to the sport and just having lessons till I get my licence and gun. Are there any local clubs that loan guns for supervised shooting?

Look up Pinewood at Gainsborough.

Cant think of anywhere that loan you a gun but plenty will give you lessons. 

Plenty of little grounds around for Sunday morning shooting, Stanley ferry,, batley gun club, Hemsworth gun club, burgh green barnsley. Also Saturdays woolley.

Best mid week and Saturdays is rufforth,York   and that is my preferred ground.

Some really good targets there. Very few that are a “doddle”. I found it quite a bit more challenging than park lodge.

At the very end of the path by the lake there are some real screamers. My hit rate went right down but I learnt a lot.

We had a good laugh on those at the end of the lake. The compact layout was pretty good too.
