Shoot Day Services recently hosted a full team of Norwegian sportsmen at Lord Carrington’s Estate, Winchbottom near Marlow. Most of the team were new to the sport and of very limited experience, however this did not prevent them from having a memorable day, experiencing one of England’s oldest pastimes . This estate is ideally located for those people wishing to shoot in close proximity to London and despite this the landscape was extremely picturesque and made for challenging birds. The day mainly comprised partridge however a few early pheasants graced the bag along with the odd pigeon. This successful day out was orchestrated by head keeper James Bruno and hosted by Lord Carrington himself. A lovely meal of beef stew and sticky toffee pudding was provided which met with great approval. The day was made all the more interesting by one of the loaders being no less than Mick Rouse, former world champion sporting clay shooter who was given the opportunity to demonstrate his prowess on the last drive.
This shoot is thoroughly recommended and we would be very happy to return in the future.
