Today, Shoot Day Services were at the beautiful Stoke Edith Estate in Herefordshire assisting to host the day for a group of 10 guns, all individuals who had come together for a days shooting from all parts of the country….some as far afield as Sweden! It is true to say that the recent weather has not favoured shooting driven game as it has been far too mild and sunny. The birds tend not to be where the keeper wants them to be and often wander far away from the cover from where it is hoped to flush them. As the weather gets colder they tend to favour foraging around the cover crops and woodland which helps greatly. Despite the unhelpful weather, Head keeper, Dan, produced the goods and the target bag of 300 was exceeded despite the adverse conditions. Five drives were shot including Little Oaks which produced some cracking birds and all guns gave a good account of themselves. This shoot can produce high birds in abundance whilst at the same time catering for those who are not qute so competent at dropping those long-tailed specs gliding overhead! A great day was had by all which finished with a fine meal in “The Long Room”. Highly recommended as a venue for full teams or single guns.
