Archery and rifle shooting combine for a thrilling experience in Leicestershire! You can choose a traditional archery lesson which will last around an hour, or you can go for the combo of archery and rifle shooting for an hour in total.
Either way, you'll love the military-style setting on the farm near Leicester. All kitted up and ready to go, your professional archery instructors will give you a full safety and technical briefing so you know just how to handle that bow and arrow. Then it's off to the target range to try and score as many bullseyes as you can in your hour.
If you opt for the archery and rifle combination, after a 30 minute archery session you'll head over to the trench rifle range. Purpose-built with steel bunkers and sandbags, the range has a proper combat feel to it, which is bound to motivate you to hit those targets spot on. Rifles used are actually precharged, bolt action sniper rifles, so there's no faffing with loading and unloading, you just need to get down into your crouch stance, take aim and get firing!
