For those who prefer a more natural, or “back-to-basics”, version of their sport we can offer “Walked Up” grouse shooting. As an experience and visual spectacle there is little to compete with a day walked-up on the moor.
The team (ideally 4-6 guns) line out across the moor under the direction of a tweed-clothed gamekeeper. Setting out at a comfortable pace you will proceed across the moor with a team of dogs quartering within shot distance in front of you.
With the walking guns keeping a straight line the dogs will indicate by screeching to a halt and pointing (in the case of pointers) or a nose down on a scent and a noticeable increase in tail-wagging speed (spaniels and retrievers). You must keep you focus as at any moment birds can explode from the heather in front of you, gaining enough height to clear the contours before accelerating rapidly away into the distance. Whether you find yourself suddenly surrounded by a covey of a dozen or more scattering in all directions, or faced with a pair of birds quickly disappearing towards the horizon, they are all equally exciting and will be sure to instil memories that will last a lifetime.
We would like to thank you for our recent goose and pigeon flight day in the North East of Scotland. We had a full day shooting for all our members , with the geese coming down to your decoys in the morning, followed by lunch, before setting off to flight the wood pigeons in the afternoon. We will need to restock our cartridges for our next trip with you. Really appreciate all your efforts with this organising.
