Deer Stalkers Rifle Course

Rifle Shooting Course London

A rifle shooting course of three one hour one-to-one lessons (or one three hour session) designed to take a novice through all the basics of safe rifle handling, to include how to assess if a shot is safe, basic stalking shooting positions, simulated high seat, shooting off sticks, prone from a bi-pod and rolled up bag/coat and free standing and kneeling. At the end of the course the shooter will be equipped to pass the “Stalkers Rifle Test” which forms part of many classroom based (mainly non-shooting) stalking courses.

No prior rifle shooting experience is necessary, all equipment, suitable stalking calibre rifle with scope sight, ammunition, shooting aids, targets, tuition from our experienced instructors who are all keen stalkers themselves, range hire and hearing/eye protection is included. You are welcome to use your own rifle should you have one. On completion of the course the shooter should be capable of hunting with a professional stalker in Scotland or elsewhere. The final lesson will include a live run through of the commonly used “Stalkers Rifle Test” and a logbook detailing the elements of the course you have successfully completed, along with your target, will be issued. This may assist in your application for a Firearms Certificate. Should you opt to take the Level One DSC you can be confident of your shooting abilities.

The course is available Monday to Saturday by appointment only. The cost is £395 per person, including up to 150 x .22 rimfire and 50 x .243 rounds, rifle hire (if required) and all necessary safety equipment.
