The shooting season has arrived and this weekend we hosted a clay shoot. Whether you are planning to escape the city for something similar or have received an invitation to join a friend’s shooting party, here are a few things you need for a shooting weekend…

If you shoot regularly, you will no doubt have all the right equipment already. If you need any essential items, we recommend checking out Beretta for all your shooting needs. From firearms, to gun accessories and suitable attire, this is your one stop shop for all shooting essentials.

For spectators or anyone joining the party just for fun, tweeds, trilby and warm knits are essential. As ambassadors for the KN Lifestyle range, we recommend taking a look at the luxury collection of bags. The Badminton Bag in Firebird Orange is fantastic for the current season. We also love the trilby hats by Laurie & Jules.

Ear defenders for adults and children are essential

Our babies joined us for our shoot and we made sure their ears were safe by using ear defenders that are available for little ones. Protecting your ears is essential for all ages. We also had off-road prams and these feature in the ranges from likes of iCandy and Britax.

If you’re taking a baby along, use an off road pram. iCandy (pictured left) and Britax (pictured right) have great options in their ranges.

We harvest sloe berries every year in order to make homemade sloe gin. This is a great tipple for a shooting weekend. If you don’t have the chance to make your own, Wild Thyme Spirits launched Colonsay Gin Bramble Liqueur, which is delicious. If you’re hosting, serve up some hot sausage rolls to guests or homemade pastry bits. Something warm, filling and easy to eat will go down a treat.

A warming tipple will be enjoyed by all and we love this new Gin Bramble Liqueur

It depends on how much off-road action you will be doing over the weekend as to whether you need a 4×4. Land Rover is a popular brand for the shooting season but if you are staying in one location, then your car probably won’t play a role at all.
