You can't call yourself a real clay shooter until you've laid waste to the targets at The Big Shoot's Knaresborough site. For both established shooters and newbies wanting their first taste of the action, coming here will be like going to a theme park exclusively for gun slingers. We have a wide range of fully automated traps designed to look like real birds; they are so realistic, you'll be surprised each time they explode into dust! With the help of our team, we will be improving your accuracy, speed and marksmanship in no time, so you have no excuse not to kill every clay in sight!

The fantastic Clay Pigeon Shooting experience we provide is matched by our excellent facilities. This includes button-operated clay traps which fire out a wide range of targets. There's even an on-site clubhouse complete with toilets. We also have tea/coffee, bacon sandwiches, and cartridges for sale. Additionally, we have ample parking spaces available.

The Shoot

Whereas many shooting ranges are part of gigantic multi activity centres, our 3 acre site is fully dedicated to the thrills of clay shooting. Here, we have expert one on one tuition in 20 different shooting disciplines, including trap, skeet and sporting. Crash courses in these will really help you when you make your way across each of the shooting stands themselves. With a wide variety of fully automated clays that emulate real targets you'd see on a game hunt, this is so intense, you'll think you have left Yorkshire behind and are now deep in the wild!

Our site has spectator areas and car parking. Light refreshments are available.
