Shooters have until 31 March to get involved with Guns on Pegs? Shoot Benchmarking Survey, a free service which enables shoot owners and managers to compare and contrast their operations against national trends.

Last year?s survey revealed a variety of data previously unavailable, and for the first time shoots could compare their performance, charges and costs with others. Robert Sword from the Abbey Shoot at Wykeham said: ?The information is very clearly set out and provides an excellent analysis of the many variables of running a commercial shoot. I refer to it frequently to check that our finances are in line with other shoots.?

Each shoot participating in this year?s survey will receive a bespoke report showing their figures compared to national averages. For more information, go to
