Breaking Clay in The UK! Hot Barrels & Cold Beer!

towerFlying the pond is both quick and inexpensive; I know that many of you are as keen Clay Busters as you are Wing Shooters. So I have put together a week this coming Summer to visit London and shoot the Major British Shotting Grounds. This trip would be for the intermediate to advanced shot who can improve target tactics at four of the finest shooting grounds in the world.
shootingThis event, “Hot Barrels and Cold Beer”, will follow The CLA Game Fair and precede “The Glorious 12th” of August, the Opening Day of the Grouse Season.
I will accompany you throughout the week to ensure all runs smoothly and to offer advice where requested. I will also take you to a few of my favorite watering holes on the way home to partake of some good British ales.

The cost per person for the full week is $2,250.00.
This includes visitors’ permits for bringing your guns in and out of the UK, accommodation, transport to and from the hotel and shooting grounds, and, if you wish to purchase it, insurance coverage for when you are shooting. This price does not include flights, airport transfers, telephone calls, alcohol or tips.

Argentina: The Ultimate Wing Shooting School!
As you are reading this, I will be in Argentina, taking part in a truly wild wing shooting school!
After waiting all year for those fleeting wing-shooting opportunities, how often are you just getting your eye in and your swing grooved when your limit is reached or the hunt opportunity is passed or the season is over? Or if you are travelling to Europe for your first driven shoot and want to learn to tackle those high driven pheasant… then look no further.
This five-day Argentinian trip offers three days of terrific high-volume dove shooting over four days. It is a very relaxed affair with unlimited live bird shooting complemented by good accommodations and superb food.
Each shooting session in the field will be video-taped and analyzed each day. Faults will be discussed and true Fault- Cause- Correction Instruction is presented in an easily- understood, non-pressure manner. The emphasis here is on practice and improvement and having fun at it, throughout the trip.
The schools will be limited to eight students to ensure the maximum of One-on- One personal attention.

The all-inclusive price of $2,895.00 covers:

• Personal Instruction from Chris Batha throughout the trip.

• Assistance with gun paperwork

• All ground transportation from Cordoba
