Cocking Shoot fact file
Quarry: Partridge & Pheasant
Bag size: 250+
Cartridges: 30g 6s - 34g 5s
Cocking Shoot is one of the most highly regarded pheasant shoots anywhere in England. The South Downs may not have the ruggedness of the South West but the shooting is pretty special. Cocking is just south of Midhurst, bang in the middle of the National Park.
Shooting over 3,500 acres, the southern part of the Cowdray Estate, the team can put on 18 drives. They host shoots twice a week and it works: half are let days and the rest are taken privately.
