Robin Hood never had to deal with action as intense as this! The Big Shoot's Haywood Oaks site is located in the heart of Sherwood Forest, the world famous home of Robin Hood. But you won't be facing off against targets using a bow and arrow- not when we have a wide range of state of the art shotguns, that are perfect for taking down each of the notoriously tricky clay targets on our shooting range. With the help of our expert tutors, you can do to the clays what Robin Hood did the sheriff of Nottingham!

Our superb shooting centre boasts top class facilities that will ensure an unforgettable experience. We have ample on-site parking, hot or cold food and drinks, an excellent clubhouse with bar and billiards, meeting room and indoor and outdoor spectator areas. We also offer one free group photograph. Buffet Available - Extra £7 per person.
Coffee / Tea and Bacon Roll - extra £3.50 per person.

It doesn't matter if you're shooting clays for the first time or the 50th, as we have plenty of thrills to suit the needs of shooters, no matter what their skill level. For starters, we have expert one on one tuition in a variety of disciplines, including Down The Line, Skeet, Automatic Ball Trap & Double Rise, Single Barrel, Handicap By Distance, FITASC, Sportrap and 50 Bird Sporting. This means that by the end of your time with us, you'll feel like a championship ready gun slinger, ready to take down targets from all angles!
