Simulated Game Shooting
Our simulated days will run from April to September, so there will be plenty of dates available to arrange a great day out.
Our aim is to simulate as closely as possible, the flight pattern of pheasant, partridge, ducks and even pigeon. Maybe even a cheeky bolting rabbit!
A typical day begins with a get together in the lodge or house, where you will enjoy a bacon roll (or two) 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.
We set out for the first of three morning drives and enjoy drinks and nibbles between each drive. We then head back to the house or lodge for a brilliant lunch and return to the field for two more drives and conclude the day with afternoon tea.
Our simulated days’ work best with 12 – 20 guns, with up to 8 shooting at any one time.
We run each of the drives twice so one guest will shoot and the other will load, then you switch. This ensures that everyone is always involved throughout the day! Each Gun can expect to shoot about 350 – 450 cartridges a day, many more if you are keen on poaching!
Please do contact us if you have a date in mind… the diary is fairly open and flexible!
