WMS FIREARMS TRAINING ANNOUNCES COOPERATION AGREEMENT WITH EUSTON ESTATE IN SUFFOLK
We are delighted to announce a cooperation agreement with Euston Estate in Suffolk to provide clients of both organisations with the very best in rifle shooting training and deer stalking.
Euston Estate in Suffolk has an excellent reputation as a provider of some of the best Red, Roe, Muntjac and Chinese Water Deer stalking in the UK under the expert guidance of Chris Rogers, the Estate’s Deer Manager. Both WMS and Euston Estate attract clients from all over the UK, Europe and further afield.
The agreement will mean that clients who train on WMS Firearms Training’s 10,000-acre rifle shooting facilities in Mid Wales can go on to practice what they have learnt on Euston Estate’s new 50-300m shooting range which features a selection of WMS’s signature reactive steel targets.
Clients can further develop their shooting skills from standing, kneeling, sitting and off sticks using WMS training methods under Chris Rogers’ eagle eye. They can then go on to stalk with him on the Euston Estate and put into practice their new levels of competence and ethical hunting skills.
At the same time Euston Estate clients who want to develop their longer range shooting or learn specific skills for overseas hunting can arrange a trip to WMS, which has built a reputation for preparing clients for the hunt of a lifetime.
Andrew Venables, CEO of WMS, comments: “We are often asked by clients who come to train with us why it is so hard to find facilities to practice the skills they have learnt. This new agreement will give these clients a superb opportunity to hone the skills gained with us under the guidance of Chris and then put them into practice deer stalking.”
Chris Rogers says: “This is a really exciting opportunity for Euston Estate and for rifle shooters. Having helped out our deer stalking clients with tips and techniques on the range and in the field, it’s fantastic that we can now offer advice and WMS training methods to new and existing shooters.”
“Our new shooting range offers clients the chance to practice shooting at practical distances which relate to all UK stalking scenarios and, thanks to its layout and topography, the sort of shooting positions found from the highlands to the lowlands can also be rehearsed. We are delighted to be working with WMS Firearms Training to make training and practice more readily available to rifle shooters.”
The Euston Estate covers some 10,500 acres to the South East of Thetford Forest in the County of Suffolk. This traditional family estate has been home to the Dukes of Grafton for nearly 300 years and has always been kept as a sporting estate offering some of the finest deer stalking and driven bird shooting the UK has to offer.
Red, Roe and Muntjac reside on the ground in healthy numbers and provide both trophy and cull stalking. The estate also has land containing Chinese Water Deer only 40 minutes drive to the North on the Norfolk Broads.
The estate’s ground is made up of deciduous and pine forest, open farm land, wetland and grassland set in gently rolling topography. Stalking is conducted on foot or from high seats and ground hides depending on weather, time of year, species being stalked and the requirements of individual clients.
Estate rifles are available for clients to use if required and thanks to the estate’s size and deer numbers, Euston can cater for numbers of clients from one to eight depending on species to be stalked and number of outings booked.
