    Not sure what you mean by "kitted for BR" but almost all our members are new to the sport. Most don't have wind flags or expensive front rests - some will use sand/x-bags. PM me your contact details and I'll forward all the information to you early January.

    Conditions were difficult with a strong wind. For most of the day you had to aim outside the 6 ring to get anywhere close to the bull.

    Great Stuff well done guys!!!
    Set up looks fantastic with a great view as well.. i would think that wind is always going to play a big part in your shoots as it looks like you are on the top of a hill...
