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.

We have just come back from paintballing, was a fab morning and all the children enjoyed it! The measures they have for COVID were spot on and we all felt very safe as well as being able to have a great time! We will be back.

Kelly - Paintball Sept 2020

It is so good to be back at Oaker Wood. We are very impressed with safety measures, and Covid-19 procedures that have been put in place, we feel totally safe and nothing has prevented the children from having the best day. Wonderful friendly instructors, we can't wait to return with more of our children

Beth Deuchar - Holmer C of E Academy

We booked as a family to enjoy the zip wire, monkey climb and vertical assault course. Everything was handled excellently and we were really impressed with the care and attention the staff took whilst dealing with us. They were encouraging, explained everything and ensured we all had a really good time. The site is beautiful and we hope to return to the glamping site in the future.

Great place great staff,and great location as plenty of space for what ever the occasion from stag/hen or just a quieter trip with friends or family. Made to feel very welcome with lots of activities on offer we went as a stag party and did quad bikes and clay shooting both highly recommended and well run and up to date facilities. Many thanks guys for all your hard work will be back again some time

Nigel - Stag Party - Sept 2020

The place is soo beautiful, the pods warm and comfy...loved the Nordic hut... The showers lovely and warm... All the staff we met, at camp, Quadding and rafting, were very friendly and helpful.. A credit to you.

Kerry Middleton - Aug 20

My family had a fantastic time. They thought the staff were really friendly and professional. When they got home there was so much chat about what they had done. I was very impressed that one of them, who has a dread of heights tackled the high ropes. Another couple who had never held shot guns were able to hit some clays and achieve pretty good scores. Thank you to everyone, you will be seeing them again.

Ros Allwright - Aug 2020

Our group had the best time paintballing at the weekend, even with everything that’s going on with Covid-19 they were very professional and made us feel safe and at ease! The staff were great!

Nicole Watton - Paintball Party - Aug 20

Absolutely 5 stars! This was our second visit and was somehow even better than the first time. Very organised and Covid safe, we had the best time, the trail was brilliant and we really couldn’t have asked for more.
