Target and Clay Pigeon Shooting Helpful Hints

Below is a list of helpful hints intended to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible. Please ensure that all of your group are aware of these hints, as inappropriate clothing can ruin the session.

We recommend you plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to your booking time. If you arrive late, your session will not be extended to accommodate your lateness. 

• If it is a cold day wear lots of warm clothing as there will some standing around and you do not want to get cold.
• On cold days hats and gloves are recommended.
• There will be tea, coffee and squash available free of charge, if you think you will want anything else you will need to bring it with you as there is no food or drink that you can purchase on site.
• There are mosquitoes on site during the summer so insect repellent is advised if you are prone to being bitten.
• For target shooting you must use the weapons provided by Oaker Wood.
• For clay pigeon shooting if you wish to bring your own shotgun it must be accompanied with your shotgun license. It will also need to be assessed for safety by your Oaker Wood marshal on the day.
• If you have any ladies or children within your group we do provide a 20 bore shotgun which is lighter if they would like to use it.
• We provide shoulder pads, ear defenders and sun glasses if it is sunny. We do recommend you bring your own sun glasses if you have some as they will be more comfortable.
• If you wish to purchase more clays on the day you will need to bring cash as we will not always have access to the office/card machine.

What our customers say

We had a wide range of ages of children who wanted to try quad biking. Oaker wood made it so easy to book and sort out, even with last minute additions. Our instructors quickly and easily sorted the kids into groups and within minutes the kids were trying out the bikes and having fun. Chris and Sam made it fun but safe and afterwards, every single one of the 15 kids we had with us said it was the best fun they’d ever had.

I visited Oaker Wood Leisure for my 18th Birthday. And I was welcomed by the team and immediately felt like I was apart of there family. We did quad biking and clay shooting. Many thanks to the team at Oaker Wood Leisure for making me feel special on my 18th birthday. And for giving me a experience I will never forget.

Hibbert Family - Aug 19

50 young people from The Factory Young People's Centre and Maypole Youth Centre attended for a days activity of paintballing and high ropes. Once again the day was faultless, despite the bad weather. The young people had an amazing time and were encouraged to try new things and push their comfort boundaries. The only thing better than the activities were the staff, well organised, friendly and motivated - they really encouraged the young people and were excellent as always.

Factory YPV - Aug 19

Great day, 4 couples some of us hadn’t even picked up a gun, the guys were instructive, patient and entertaining, the scenery over the lake was stunning! We all had a really good day.

Dawn Day - Clay Pigeon Shooting - July 19

A group of ten of us did the clay pigeon shooting activity at this wonderful venue. The setting is wonderful and the staff could not have been more helpful. This is the second activity we have done here as a group and can't rate the place enough. The clay pigeon shooting itself was well organised, safe and above all somersetting that all of us could take part in and enjoy. Will definitely return. Thank You.

Family Clay Session - July 19

I organised a stag do at one of the Glamping camps and it was perfect, food and activities all taken care of by the staff who made for an excellent weekend. The accommodation is great and there are bbq and kitchen areas to use. The campfire was roaring all weekend. Would highly recommend anyone booking a stag to consider it, you’ll be in safe hands and have a great weekend.

Tom Fleetwood - Stag weekend - July 19

Saturday we did our chosen activities – Code Breaking & Rafting. These were so well organised and fun, also great for big groups to bond and get to know one another. Big shout out to Chris and Pav, our amazing hosts for the day who managed to put up with 18 rather strong willed, hyper and hungover ladies! You guys were great and we can’t thank you enough for making it such a giggle.

Hollie Hunt - Hen Weekend - July 19

I would like to begin this review with a huge THANK YOU to the Oaker Wood Team. We organised a weekend at the camp for our friends hen party – from the initial enquiries stage, all the way through to the weekend itself the team were beyond helpful. I spoke to many Glamping venues and most were proving inflexible in terms of people, activities and options. Oaker Wood has a very simple and organised set up, however the team were more than happy to make tweaks to the package to suit the needs of our group.
