About Us

Bowcombe View Shooting Ground is a recently landscaped and purpose built shooting ground located in Cheverton on the Isle of Wight. The ground works we have recently undertaken lends themselves to very interesting target presentations across our compact and sporting clays layout. It will also help weatherproof some of the higher stands and provide better sound insulation.The 11 acre ground also benefits from a permanent skeet layout. We are affiliated to the CPSA (Clay Pigeon Shooting Association) and have a qualified CPSA coach.

Our 40+ automatic traps are a mixture of Laporte, Promatic and Bidwell Autosporter traps. Other features include:

  • Recently completed ground works
  • Multi Trap Automatic Driven Flush
  • Constantly evolving targets and layout including chandelle, midi's and mini's.
  • Pattern plate available (requires authorisation)


The ground has a club house offering a comfortable area to enjoy refreshments (available on site) and superb views of the surrounding area. There is a permanent toilet in a seperate block for your convenience and ample, free parking.

Cartridges, hearing and eye protection are avilable to purchase at the ground. Plastic and fibre wads can both be used on site.

All fixture dates can be found on our Fixtures Page, with our regular Sunday fixtures featuring a 100 bird, 10 stand sporting shoot, occasional Sport Trap and skeet practice. Sporting targets are changed for every Sunday shoot. Friday fixtures are seasonal and are designated as practice days with sporting, simulated game and skeet practice. Special events and competitions fall throughout the year and will be listed on both the Fixtures Page. We do not run a membership or club scheme and all are assured of a warm welcome on any of the fixture dates.
