Bob Valentine Shooting School

During my recent sojourn to Wales I spent some time with a gentlemen I wanted to let you know about.

The BASC should use Bob Valentine as an advert for shooting.

His knowledge, warmth, experience and inherent love for his sport and countryside shine through as he guides you around his delightful shooting school grounds near Abersoch.

Set amongst beautiful rolling countryside, the school has an amazing shooting lodge where you start and finish your visit with coffee and cakes next to a rustic log fire, amidst a lifetime's collection of fieldsports memorabilia. Bob's beautiful black labrador Archie may deign to follow you dutifully around the course of clays, all of which can be altered and amended dependent on ability and experience. The Shooting School also offers a gun fitting service, gunsmithing and a sporting agency.

From grouse butts to naturally presented high birds, this is the daddy of clay shoots. And if you're sensible, you'll book some one to one tuition with the man himself. A kind word and subtle alteration of stance will have you shooting better than you ever thought you could.

A lovely day with a lovely man - thanks Bob. Make sure you check out the school if you're anywhere near and don't forget to mention The Amateur Naturalist if you're booking some sport.
