Goose Shooting Scotland

Recommended Posts

Myself & a couple of mates travelled to Aberdeenshire in Scotland at the end of November 2016 for a spot of goose & duck shooting.

On the first morning the weather didn't really play ball & with no wind it proved very difficult to get the geese into range. This wasn't helped half way through the flight when the Farmer in the neighbouring field started ploughing. We ended up with 5 pinkfoot & 2 greylag geese.

The evening was much better; we were positioned around a small pond & in the next hour or so we shot 23 teal & 21 mallard.

The second morning on the geese was much the same, no wind & more frustration with all the birds being drawn to another stubble a mile or so away. Anyway, we made the most of our couple of opportunities & bagged 9 pinkfoot geese.

The evening was another successful one on the ducks with 15 mallard bagged, although 2 of them were lost.

A great trip all in all and I'm sure we will be back in the future. We came back with plenty of meat for the table between us.

Thanks for watching

I noticed one of you had a benelli . Which one is it how does he rate it cheers

There were actually 2 fellas shooting benellis. My best mate shoots a left handed montefeltro & he loves it. One of the other lads was shooting with a camo benelli vinci I think.
