Borde Hill, Miltons and Buttery Shoots

At the end of October we were at the Borde Hill shoot in West Sussex for 2 days. All involved had to work very hard to present the birds due to a shortage of beaters but success was achieved and a good 2 days shooting was had. Accommodation was at nearby Muir Lodge which was to a very high standard. For our third day we moved to Miltons in Devon which was a notch up in all respects, cracking birds in spectacular countryside. On the fourth day we were treated to the Buttery Shoot on Exmoor……. my favorite of the trip and I think this just pipped Miltons for overall appeal. The birds were well presented with the minimum of fuss and some of the highest birds I’ve seen…… many out of shot! Gordon’s View was a particularly good drive with exceptionally high birds alongside the river. This shoot had a particularly nice family feel to it especially afterwards when all the loaders, beaters and picker-ups sat down for a lovely meal with family and kids in tow….. brilliant…….. hopefully we will be back.
