Who doesn’t want to take part in a traditional British shoot. Whether it be mile high driven pheasants at Warter Priory or feathered missiles on a grouse moor in Scotland on the 'glorious twelfth'…. It makes no difference to me - either sits at the top of my bucket list… If you aren't familiar with this style of shooting, let me just summarize by saying it's steeped in tradition and will challenge even the most accomplished gun. Traditional shooting attire as the standard. And of course the guns are encouraged to be doubles. As a much more affordable option. There are some US hunt clubs that are conducting European style shoots. Many would argue that none do it better than shoot captain, Keith Coyle and the Green Acre Sportsman's club in central Illinois.
A few weeks ago I got to spend some time with Keith on the phone discussing his background and journey to the US. In this second part of our conversation we are going to take a closer look at the simulated British shoots offered at Green Acres. Whether your targets are clay birds or feathered - I think that you will agree that it’s their attention to the details that make the day.
(This is the second in a two part interview with Keith. Don't miss part one where we discuss his shooting background and experiences.)
