UK Air Gun Basics
A free video tutorial series
We have teamed up with North Wales air gun retailer Tony Dobson to produce a series of free air rifle tutorial videos for the UK.
This series goes from the very basics of buying your first air rifle to target shooting, hunting and fieldcraft and game preparation.
We do not run air rifle hunting courses, but we do run Foraging and Wild Food Courses every year that cover edible wild plant identification and preparation, plus the laws around foraging and wild food in the UK.
This series was made possible with the kind support of TonysCamo.co.uk.

It’s important to remember:
