Festive Season Double “D” - Traditional Driven Shoot Weekend.
Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th December 2017
To celebrate the most festive part of the years hunting season we are hosting the "Double D Weekend", two days of traditional British Driven Wing shooting that combines our “Grand Battue” triple tower Pheasant shoot and our unique “Driven Flighted Mallard” shoot where literally hundreds of high flying ducks will be driven over the line of guns.
Saturday December 16th: “La Grande Battue”, French for “The Big Beaten Drive”, brings together all the elements of a great shoot. We’ll warm up the barrels by shooting multiple clay targets from our 60 foot tower.
Then, it’s on to confront the 200 pheasants released from our two woodland-concealed towers. Pegs – namely, places on the line of shooters will be strategically placed around the towers’ circumference and are rotated periodically.
Sunday December 17th: Unlike the traditional American duck hunt, there are no blinds, waders or camouflage in our Continental Mallards shoot. Shooting pegs are located on the shoreline, positioned in the flight path of the driven ducks. You will experience truly high-flying Mallards filling the sky above you, providing the very best sporting shooting this side of the Atlantic! Pegs will be rotated periodically and the drive will end when we reach our bag of 200.
As is customary in the British hunting tradition, all of our events will include full hospitality: breakfast traditional "Elevensies" (nibbles and libations) and a post-shoot three-course gourmet supper, with wine pairings.
British and American Classic shooting attire is strongly encouraged but not essential, all we ask is for gentlemen to wear collared Shirt and Tie. In any event, please NO Camouflage or Orange clothing.
For those Guns and guests coming from a distance (or those who just want to get away!), we are also including a kick-off dinner on the evening of Thursday, December 15th at the Green Acres clubhouse.
This event is limited to 8 Pegs and is sold only as a package, priced at $1,445 per gun for Green Acres members and, for non-members, $1,645 per gun. Non-shooting guests/loaders are welcome to attend and enjoy the events’ hospitality.
Please contact the Club for non-shooting event rates.
