The pheasant shooting season runs from 1 October through to 1 February.
Duck shooting season occurs between the 1st September and 31st January.
The season only runs for a certain period of the year to allow for game conservation and species management to take place.
Simulated game Shooting
Simulated game shooting has all the thrills, all the fun, all the scenery and all the good companionship and typically warmer and drier weather.
The targets are clay pigeons, so unfortunately you can’t eat what you shoot.
A range of different drives are offered, representing pheasants over woods, partridge over steep banks, grouse and even duck or pigeon flighting.
