Start em' Young!
I started shooting at a young age and during my time I have seen fewer and fewer youngsters getting into field sports and shooting in general. Something really needs to be done to help introduce young blood into the shooting world, especially into the estates for the pheasant shooting. A recent survey by BASC revealed that the average age of guns at a shoot is 58. At this rate, field sports could literally die-off, unless more young people are encouraged to enjoy the outdoors, like we do. For this reason, BASC is actually running a campaign to try and get more young people into shooting.
