Another wonderful write up in the Field magazine, Philip was ranked in the top 50 game shots across the country, which he has been ranked in the last 3 years running. This is a fantastic achievement and another highly recognised ranking to be involved with.
The last week has been another exciting week starting last Sunday at Kegworth shooting ground. Philip went to the 120 bird sporting last Sunday where the round was very exciting and full of technical and tricky targets, Philip managed to shoot an impressive score of 116/120!!!
On Tuesday Philip was invited to shoot pigeons on an estate over near Hunstanton, The day started at 10am setting up the hide and putting out the decoy’s, there were pigeons in the sky looking to feed on the laid wheat. Soon as Philip was in the hide the pigeons started coming, they kept coming all day!!! At 8.30pm Philip had to put the gun in the slip as there were so many pigeons to pick up, but there were still pigeons in the sky. Once they were all picked up and we had a count up the total of the day was a HUGE 602 pigeons!!! This was a new personal best for Philip and a fantastic day…
On Thursday the academy had another great result with one of our young shooters George Townsend who shot the down the line Norfolk Championship at Mid Norfolk shooting ground. George kept concentrated throughout and displayed some fantastic skill and took first place in Juniors winning him the Norfolk down the line Championships. Congratulations George.
