Simulated British Driven Shooting – The Downton Day
This is your chance to experience the excitement and traditions of the Classic British Driven Shoot season from August to January, all in this single day, that will replicate every element of real grouse, pheasant and partridge shooting but using clay pigeons as the quarry to recreate the “Beaten Drive” with birds constantly flying over the gun line from singles to full “Coveys”. It’s Fast, It’s Furious and it’s Great Fun!
The day will begin, as always, with the shoot breakfast during which the Shoot Captain will provide a brief on the various drives, safety rules & etiquette requirements. Following this will be the traditional “Drawing of Pegs”, to allocate your place in the line and then guns will move to the field where they will work in pairs taking turns to both shoot & load for their partner.
Places for the day are limited to 10 guns, hearing and eye protection are a requirement and we recommend to the guns of the day that they expect to shoot at least 300 to 350 cartridges.
Shoot fees are: $350 per member gun & $395 per non member gun inclusive of: Breakfast, Elevensies and traditional post shoot diner with matched wines & port. Non shooting guests are welcome to enjoy the day at food & beverage fees of $75 per member guest and $95 per non member guest.
If you want to experience the most realistic simulation of true British driven shooting with fast & furious action & the very best hospitality, being run on either side of the Atlantic, then you need to book your place on our Downton Day, it doesn’t matter if you’re a dedicated sporting clay’s enthusiast, upland or duck hunter, this event suits all, it’s the day where wing meets clay!
