INSTRUCTION IN THE FIELD
Instruction in the field is educational from teaching the newcomer the world of game shooting to teaching awareness of the beaters and pickers up and the etiquette of shooting. Having personal tuition is equally beneficial for an experienced shot, for example in honing his/her shooting skills to become more consistent with the art of bird selection and footwork.
On the shooting school, a qualified instructor can teach you the gun handling, safety, stance and approach to the target. However, as it is more involved knowing just when to start your approach to your shot at a game bird, it is very helpful to have an instructor beside you in the field. Also, bird selection for example sounds easy until you are confronted with a flush of birds approaching you all at the same time.
