Simulated Game Shooting
We have a number of great estates to offer for simulated shooting. One example is Vivod, this is a truly hidden gem in the rolling hills near Llangollen. It is a sporting estate with a pedigree and quite rightly so; a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff, excellent hospitality and outstanding food all combine to make a day’s simulated shooting here a real treat. Using the high rolling grass banks, the steep woodland glades, dense conifer forestry and rolling moorlands, we are able to offer outstanding simulated game shooting with challenging and varied drives for all to enjoy.
We meet in the morning for coffee and bacon rolls, draw pegs and then set out for the first of five drives, stopping for elevenses in the field and returning to the house for a great lunch and afternoon tea. Our simluated day includes your own personal Criddle Fieldsports host to ensure everything is seamless. Organised in just the same way as a ‘real’ day, you will find that it’s a great opportunity to enjoy a fantastic day with friends or colleagues.
A Typical Day
9:00am – Meet
The day begins with a get together at the Estate’s Main House, where you will enjoy a bacon roll with tea and coffee. The shoot host will discuss the day with you and explain all of the safety features. Don’t worry if you haven’t shot simulated game before, we will have staff on hand to assist and advise you.* Three drives in the morning We set off for our first drives amongst the spectacular countryside of North Wales. Clays are fired to simulate as closely as possible, the flight pattern of pheasant, partridge and even pigeon. Refreshments and canapes are served after the second drive.
12:30pm – Lunch
Enjoy a home cooked lunch within the welcoming atmosphere of the Estate’s Main House.
Two drives in the afternoon
3:30pm – Afternoon Tea
We will then return back to the Estate to enjoy freshly baked cakes with tea or coffee and enjoy the banter of the day! Each drive will be in a different location, shot from pegs or butts and will consist of around 600 ‘birds’ (clays) per drive, depending on the amount of guns. Expect to use a fair few cartridges on the day!
Please note: cartridges are not included in the price.
Loaders, Guns, Cartridges are available at an extra cost for your simulated game day, if required.
*please note that inexperienced/novice guns will require an Instructor on the day which we would be pleased to arrange for you if necessary
