Simulated Driven Wing Shooting (Partridge & Pheasant) over 4 drives in different locations.



This is your chance to experience the excitement and traditions of the Classic British Driven Shoot. This day will replicate every element of real 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 12 guns. Traditional shoot attire is appreciated although not essential.  Comfortable Country Clothing is fine preferably no camo /real tree. Hearing an eye protection is 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: $300 per member Gun & $350 per non member Gun inclusive of: Breakfast, Elevenses and Traditional post Shoot Diner with matched Wines, Cheese & Port.
Non shooting Guests are welcome to enjoy the day at Food & Beverage fees of
$30 per member guest and $35 per non member guest.
