Pheasant hunting in Scotland is carried out on a large number of estates throughout the length and breadth of the country. Many territories will rear their birds until they are seven weeks old, and then release them into the wild in time for July. The season for pheasant hunting in Scotland starts in October, once the birds have matured and can fly strongly. A day’s hunting is well suited for a team of friends, although feel free to contact us if you require any specific arrangements.
Rough Shooting, or “walked up” days are a popular form of shooting sport in Scotland. Our packages are suitable for teams of four to eight guns and will involve the guns shooting in a line, advancing behind working dogs. An expected bag for a walked-up day would be approximately 7-10 head of mixed game per gun on a full day shoot (including pheasant, partridge, woodcock, snipe, pigeon, duck, rabbit or hare) but packages can be altered to suit individual requirements (including, for instance, targeting specific quarry).
Bag size will often depend on prevailing weather conditions, and indeed on each individual’s accuracy. With this in mind bag sizes cannot be guaranteed on a rough shooting day but we can assure you that the Hunting Scotland team will always strive to ensure the satisfaction of our clients.
Hunting Scotland can arrange days at numerous estates all over Scotland. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
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.
