The Mountgarret Shoot

It is worth noting that the prices remain as last season however we are only fielding 8 guns compared to 9. This should give more birds over each gun and the cost per bird is reduced.  

We propose bags of 150, 200, 250, 300 and 350 but as always will aim to shoot in excess of the target bag each day with no overage charged. There will also be some Boundary Days with a target bag of 80 birds run by Martin Nesham our Head Keeper.

Guns are encouraged to invite non shooting guests and there will always be ample time between drives to work your dog.
We are fortunate in having a very comfortable well appointed Shoot Lodge where we start the day at 8.30 a.m. with a full breakfast. We plan to shoot 3 to 4 drives in the morning with drinks breaks and pork pies mid-morning. At around 12.30 p.m. we will take a tasty lunch in the Shoot Lodge and the day will end with afternoon tea at around 4.00 p.m.

A 4 x 4 vehicle is recommended although the well maintained estate roads connect most drives. We also have a courtesy Land Rover Station Wagon available each day with a driver, if you require this some prior notice would be appreciated.

The days will be run at a leisurely pace with walking kept to a minimum. As on our other Shoots we particularly cater for single guns and small parties with ample days available for full teams.

At the end of the day each gun will receive a brace of chilled oven ready game of their choice. Any number of birds in feather may be purchased on any shoot day.

Breakfast and lunch are included in the shoot fee. Non shooting guests are most welcome to join us for all meals and refreshments when a small donation to our Shoot Fund would be appreciated. Some prior notice would be appreciated for catering arrangements.

I am very confident the many changes and improvements I propose for the new season will bring the Mountgarret Shoot to a new level and we can all look forward to some excellent shooting.
