David’s shooting career started as with so many other boys at an early age with a hammer .410 and Father supplying the cartridges. Since then David has been a keen game shot in East Anglia until he moved to the West Country in 1998 where he continues to shoot Game, Wildfowl and targets with Shot Gun and Rifle. David has also been a Shoot Captain and has instructed guns in shooting etiquette and safety in the field.

The majority of David’s professional career has been in the motor industry and engineering, followed by a spell as a Shooting Officer for the Countryside Alliance.
