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.

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.
