Grouse shooting

Recommended Posts

The Glorious 12th is nearly here.

 

What are the grouse numbers looking like? I have been getting some reports of decent number from various keepers.

 

There seems to be no drop in demand for driven grouse shooting. So prices won't be coming down.

 

There could be some really good opportunities on the dogging moors. Has anyone booked any day, if you have what are they charging?

I thought it was a gentleman never discusses the cost of his tailor and who's wife he has slept with. Bad form indeed.

 

Having made some enquires there are some good prices to be had for September.

Hearing reports that due to the lack of rain the numbers are looking good.

 

Still be out my price bracket but hope the estates that have them continue to flourish.

Small walked up days can be had for very reasonable money. Especially if you can get a few guys with decent well trained dogs to share the day.

I'd rather have a couple of days on the moor than a fortnight in the Med with Holidays4U.

well our syndicate has a small moor that we visit at the start of the season it's not managed in any way but some years we have enough game to be able to have a walk out with the dogs.we will be up and watching the moor to see if enough grouse are about to warrant a days walk about.the most we have had in the bag was 2 1/2 brace not a lot i know but for the lads that shot them it was great :toast: and for those that did'nt theres always next season :cray:

up in scotland we had almost a week of rain and wind just as the grouse were hacking out, done the counts and it will not be as good a year for us as it was last year but we will still shoot plenty of days

I imagine your next years result will be far better for a bit of predator control and a bit of medicated grit.

Get a rota going and reap the rewards :thumbs:

To be fair, last year was a massive year for most moors. It will be very hard to match ;)
