Clay Pigeon Shooting in the Winter

16 Oct 2019

As the temperatures start to drop and winter approaches, it’s important to know what to wear when planning your trips to East Midland Clay Sports for some clay pigeon shooting.
We are the leading destination for clay pigeon shooting across the East Midlands, whether it’s for a one-off experience or we are welcoming our members for their regular session.
In our latest blog, we are going to discuss what you should wear when visiting us over the next few months.

Look the Part at East Midlands Clay Sports

The first item you should be looking to purchase if you are considering making clay pigeon shooting a regular fixture – is a shooting jacket.
Your shooting jacket should be waterproof and practical, allowing you to easily move whilst shooting. The weather can be quite unpredictable at this time of year, so even if you are wearing a fleece or gilet; packing a waterproof shooting jacket will protect you from any adverse weather.

For trousers, we would recommend moleskin or cord trousers in darker colours that can be worn by both men and women.
In colder weather, you may want to add a thermal base layer underneath your shirt, as this will prevent you from freezing when out on the course.

If you want to keep your head warm, you can also consider a fedora hat, beanies or baseball caps, just make sure they don’t obscure your field of vision. You could also consider a waterproof baseball cap. A pair of non-slip or fingerless gloves will keep your hands warm whilst not hampering you from pulling the trigger on the gun.
Supportive or sturdy footwear is essential for clay pigeon shooting, no matter what the weather is like. Investing in a pair of waterproof field boots will help you to keep a steady stance when shooting.

Finally, to complete your look, consider some long knee-length socks designed for country sports and shooting.
Other pieces of equipment, such as eye protection and ear defenders will be provided for you once you arrive at East Midlands Clay Sports.
