    First as Gromit spin the gnome sign so it is pond side up and place the badminton racket from Wallace's room into the other gnomes hand.

    Then after this is done go next to the major and i recommend exiting the game so it saves (not through guide) so if you fail you exit through the guide and load the game up again.

    First shoot the dustbin, the tree (that miss Flitt is stuck in)and the shed door.

    A bee will move above the dustbin so when it does shoot it and it will fall into it, then shoot the squirrel on the branch who will knock the lid on top of the bin. 1/3 down.

    Secondly shoot the bee who circles above the pond. once you have hit him shoot the stop sign held by the gnome and this will be another bee down.

    Lastly shoot the bee who circles over the wrong trousers from the shed so he will land in them. Shoot the trousers and they will return to the shed. All 3 down.

    Happy shooting and good luck.

    Edit:
    I had no idea about bookmarks on my play-through but to make this even easier, look at Dude rain's comment below.

    Magnum Force 72you can scratch my last comment.I'm just dumb. for some reason i thought there were 4 bee's and i was to knock 1 underground with the pond flip and one into the tree which really doesn't make sense... for some reason I just never realized that bee was just flying back upstairs.

    Doctor ShawnIf you are using the bookmarking method there is one thing to note. Do not hit the tree and shed right at the beginning because the squirrel and trousers will return to their original positions when you back out to save a bookmark.

    I think the game counts the number of shots that you make rather than your accuracy. Meaning that you have to do it in 9 shots to unlock the achievement. If you hit a bee but it misses the bin, or if you have to reshoot the tree/shed because you backed out then you will exceed the 9 shots and you wont get the achievement.

    CyberneticHFXEight shots are needed and allowed to hit their right targets at the right moments - additional in-depth information, Doctor Shawn has written about, is crucial. If successful, this Achievement will unlock momentarily when the final giant bee has been taken care of.

    Firstly this is a missable achievement so i suggest making a bookmark before you talk to the Major. You can also back out of the gun and overwrite this bookmark after each shot if you so wished. (Thanks Sashamorning)

    For the guide im assuming you've flipped the pond and placed the tennis racket in the gnome's hand. (Video accompanied to help line up your shots)

    Once on the gun do the following:
    ~ Shoot above the window on the house far left as the bee flies over the pond, then shoot the gnome with the stop sign.
    ~ Shoot the silver dustbin on the right
    ~ Shoot the top of the tree (Part with the small roof)
    ~ Shoot the brown door far right (The wrong trousers will walk out)
    ~ Aim for the top left corner of the window above the wrong trousers and shoot as the bee flies over and then shoot the wrong trousers again so they go back behind the brown door
    ~ Aim for the middle of the windows above the silver dustbin and shoot as the bee flies over.
    ~ Shoot the squirel who flips the lid back on the bin.

    9 shots in total if you need to count your shots.

    Skip to 1:45 for the beginning of the shooting gallery.

    SashamorningYou can DEFINITELY save after each bee. You can even back out and save after each shot, in case you miss the gnome or the squirrel.

    EddieM1974OK, I'll give that a try. This has proven to be a really frustrating achievement for me. I keep hitting the bees with the porridge but nothing happens. Ah, probably just me and my wishfull thinking :-)
    Hope the bookmarking after each shot helps me. Thanks for the great tip Sasha.

    EddieM1974Unfortunately you can't bookmark after every shot!! After yiu dump the bee in the dustbin DO NOT bookmark. The bee will be flying around again and you will have to play the game from the beginning to get this cheevo. Just like I have to do now :-( the game being already as bad as it is... Better luck than me.
