This course takes place outdoors over 2 days including spending a night camping under a tarp so please dress accordingly. What we recommend is only meant as a guide to help you prepare for
your adventure. We suggest;
- Enough clean & dry clothes for your 2 day stay. Remember to have at least one full set of dry clothes to change into if the clothes you are wearing become soaked.
- Sleeping bag, a sleeping matt and a woolly hat for the evenings.
- A warm jacket/coat for the evening.
- Torch, wash kit.
- Waterproof and comfortable footwear - wellington boots, walking boots or something you don't mind getting dirty or wet if it rains.
- Good comfortable trousers. Please consider that denim soaks up water if it gets wet, making jeans cold and uncomfortable should it rain.
- Long sleeves and trousers are a good idea to stop the insects bites if we have a few bugs flying about.
- Shirts, hoodies, jumpers and a coat to keep you warm, dry and comfortable.
- A peak hat or cap can assist your shooting.
- A set of waterproof trousers & jacket if you have them, or if not at least a good jacket and umbrella to keep any rain off you.
- Please feel free to bring any snacks and drinks you may want during the day.
- Don't forget a camera.
- Please try not to wear excessive jewellery, large rings and necklaces which may restrict your movements and the safe handling of the rifle.
- Please bring your own meals for 2 lunches, 1 evening meal, 1 breakfast and any snacks and drinks you may want during your Adventure.
