LAST REMAINING SHOOT DATES AVAILABLE 2021/2022 SEASON:

ONE of our guns last season described his day as;
''A stonking day from beginning to end, I haven't laughed so much in a long time! A wonderful day in a truly beautiful setting, Ian showed the birds with such style and did a tremendous job of manoeuvring the beaters to send birds down the whole line. Simon hosted us with great ease and by the end of the day we felt we had been coming here for years. We look forward to joining you all next season.''

SET in beautiful deep valleys and steep wooded goyles we offer challenging shooting at great value. The shoot is based in Dorset near Beaminster, just over two hours from London and half an hour off the A303.

WE meet at the shoot lodge for 9:00 where tea and coffee will be provided while pegs are drawn. Then we go into our roomy ex-military guns bus which we will transport you safely to shoot two drives, before elevenses.

YOUR day will be professionally hosted from start to finish and the game discretely gathered by our proficient picking-up team. We will then shoot another drive, before heading back to the lodge for lunch. We plan to shoot one or two afternoon drives. The whole day will be finished with afternoon tea at the lodge.

WE aim to be able to cater for all our client’s requirements, from providing loaders or coaches to organising accommodation and transport to and from the shoot.

IF you would like a bespoke package just ask. We can accommodate groups of 8-10 guns.

WE offer fantastic value at £35 + VAT.

Our ladies that are out and about are starting to settle now. Let’s hope we see a few wild broods in the next month or two. And if it’s roughly right for the pheasants, the habitat can’t be far off for all the other wildlife too. #pheasanthunting #keepingthebalance #conservation
