1) Before you leave, check with your host what cartridges are accepted on the moor – some insist on fibre wads.

2) Find a local ground with a grouse butt to practice technique beforehand

3) Don’t dawdle with your shots. Be positive; commit, and you will find a natural flow

4) Don’t obsess over shooting a left and a right

5) Don’t be afraid to ask your host any safety questions before the day starts, however silly they may seem
