We all know perfect practice makes perfect performance but when your limit is a dozen dove or six duck it can be a very long journey to perfecting your wing shooting technique. Of course, there is practice at clays, but these inanimate targets don't jink, curl and swerve like the real thing.

In a perfect world an ideal solution would be to take instruction on an inexhaustible supply of live quarry. Well, this perfect opportunity exists. During the coming year I have arranged an exclusive package with one of Argentina's premier dove shooting estancias; Tomas Frontera is pleased to host the Chris Batha Wing Shooting Schools at his magnificent home close to Cordoba and minutes from the very finest of volume dove shooting in Argentina.

Day 1: Arrive Cordoba midday, transfer to estancia, then on to the dove fields for an afternoon's shooting/ instruction.

Day 2: Morning shooting/instruction, lunch, siesta, afternoon shooting/instruction

Day 3: Morning shooting/instruction, lunch siesta, afternoon shooting/instruction

Day 4: Morning shooting instruction before lunch and departure for Cordoba and flight

During the three days of shooting and instruction there will be several tutorials on the different quarry and the best techniques for each. These will be practiced in the field and video analysis will be used throughout the school to help recognize faults and offer corrections to enhance your shooting ability.

The classic shooting techniques from the major British shooting schools (Stansbury, Churchill) will be emphasized throughout.

A simply fantastic opportunity to get a lifetime of wing shooting instruction and practice in three days.
