A new shoot to Northern Ireland,in our second season we are setting up a small syndicate with one gun remaining for the 2013/14 We are situated at the edge of the Mourne Mountains Co Down, Ballyward Shoot offers a superb walked up, driven and mini driven shoot experience. October 19th 2013 November 16th 2013 December 14th 2013 January 11th 2014 Price per gun for this season is set at a very keen rate of £1,000 per gun. This includes the four dates above which consists of a combination of shooting with drives & some walk up, therefore mixing the day up and giving you the best of both . Refreshments & full hot lunch will also be provided in the estate's dinning room. The bag expectation each day will be approximately 50-60 .The guns who have already confirmed their place where with us last year and have joined us based on their experience last year and they are a good group of guys.
