Simulated clay pigeon shooting days
Our simulated clay pigeon shooting days replicate every element of a real day of driven pheasant or grouse shooting but utilise clay pigeons as the quarry. Our experienced guns find these days are a great opportunity to warm up before the start of the season, or just to shoot the equivalent of a 800 bird day with friends. These days are also perfect for complete beginners looking for a (really) fun introduction to the sport. The day begins with the guests meeting for breakfast. Up to five drives are enjoyed throughout the day, along with serious elevenses.
0930 Meet for coffee and bacon rolls
0945 Depart for first three drives
1130 Late morning drinks and elevenses
1200 Two more drives
1400 Depart or to lunch (an optional extra)
Fullerton - Available all year
Fullerton, just north of Stockbridge, offers the most varied simulated shooting for miles. A five drive sequence ranges from ‘partridge’ drives to ‘pigeon flighting’. Elevenses is taken overlooking the award winning Cottonworth Vineyard, and lunch can be put on in the vineyard tasting rooms.
Hippenscombe - Available from February to Mid July
Hippenscombe offers the most challenging shooting of our estates. The shooting is set in a deep valley that is home to some of the most famous shoots in the country, and the topography allow us to replicate everything from (very) high ‘pheasants’ to fast ‘partridge’.
Blackbrook - Available from February to Mid July
Sitting next to the England/Wales boarder, Blackbrook has the most challenging typography of all the estates we work with. The estate has 11 drives that take advantage of the Monmouthshire valleys to produce very tricky & exciting shooting. High bird specialists will be tested with clays that replicate pheasant and partridge drives.
Dates can be arranged throughout the year to suit your diary.
