Long range shooting and opera
High on a Welsh hillside, with opera legend Andrea Bocelli singing his heart out from the truck stereo, I shot a mouflon at 440 yards. It was a surreal moment. The quality of this soundclip is pretty awful, but it gives a sense of the atmosphere.
Not a real mouflon of course. This was a steel silhouette target, and I was visiting Andrew Venables' fabulous range facility with Robert Bucknell, for an article in our Game Fair issue.
A truly memorable day - more when I get a moment to add photos etc. Meanwhile, if you get a chance, just throw caution to the wind and book a day with Andrew. I promise you won't regret it!
