Shoot Guide

Driven Shoot

Meals and refreshments are an important social side of our shoot days.

The driven day generally starts with breakfast so that all the guns can meet each other. Following breakfast, the Gamekeeper or Host will conduct the “shooting briefing” to outline the basic shoot rules for the day.  Guns will be assigned pegs and told what game to shoot. Some birds may be off limits, usually for reasons of game management.

You will also be given instructions and signals to be followed throughout the day. After the morning drives, we will stop for a full lunch.  The lunch provides the beaters and guides an opportunity to refresh for the afternoon drives.  After lunch, we will have three additional drives.

SHOOT

Walked Up

The walked up shoot days also begin with a traditional Scottish breakfast before gathering with the Gamekeeper and host for the shooting briefing.

Some guns will be positioned as a blocker and others will walk in line with the beaters to flush birds out in front.  You can expect to have an average of 5 drives on a walked up shoot.  On a walked up shoot, we often shoot straight through until around 2pm and then stop for the day.

Days like this are often accompanied by a substantial elevenses which act as a pause in the day to refresh and socialize.
