Organising your next shooting break? Set this sports agency in your sights

With almost 50 years of experience under their cartridge belts, Ian Coley Sporting Agency will be able to find the perfect location for your next shoot

Shooting is surely one of the greatest ways to enjoy the countryside. A bracing combination of fresh air, sporting spirit and the smell of gunpowder, it’s both social and primal; getting back to your hunter-gather origins.

But shooting in the same location, over and over, year-in, year-out can become repetitive and, ultimately, boring. You want fresh landscapes, new vistas and different challenges. And that’s where both travel, and Ian Coley Sporting Agency, come in.
