English Sporting

English Sporting must have been invented for the grounds at Carrick Glen which are far from flat and covered in gorse, giving you the feeling that you are hunting "real" birds in the Wicklow hills. 

The stands are set up all the way around the base of the hill using the natural terrain and slopes to make it interesting and challenging. Equally there is no backtracking or one shooter getting in the way of another. 

With each stand featuring a different target type i.e. crosser, driven, quartering etc. down to the rabbit. The powerful Promatic Super Sporter traps are often located out of view in positions that are above or below the stand.  When the 100 ft mast is included, it adds a super fast horizantal clay.  The size of the course gives the shooter a large area for every position and a very wide arc within which to shoot.

All the traps are radio operated for smooth and easy operation.

  • Targets can be presented as single, simultaneous or true pairs

 

Due to the number of possible stand locations at the club, the range master decides each Sunday which positions to use for the shoot. The course configuration is generally changed every week.
