Bird shooting over dogs

Quality walked up shooting in beautiful estates 

France, several locations 

Description

About this trip

We offer a wide selection of estates for rough / walked up shooting over dogs. These trips are made for the traditional walked up shooting enthusiatics. Your own dogs are more than welcome. If you wish to travel without dog, a team of keepers will work their dogs to flush the birds.

We walk most of the day, following the dogs. The day can be ended by a duck flight. Ducks will be flushed and shot at then the guns will wait until dark for the ducks to return.

Species 

We are shooting : pheasants (common and sometimes reeves), red-legged partridges, grey partridges, woodcocks, ducks and the odd rabbits or hares.

Locations

  • South West of France (close to the Atlanctic Ocean coast – Ideal for family holidays)
  • South of Paris (close to the iconic French capital)
  • North of France (easy access from Belgium, Germany and the UK)

Bag – Team 

We offer bags to suit any requirement. Generally around 8-10 head of game per gun but bigger bags can be achieved easlily.
