Driven Partridge Shooting in Scotland
How do you enjoy shooting partridge? This most engaging game bird can offer so many challenges – driven off high banks or over deep valleys they can test the best high bird shots, they can burst like an exploding shell over hedges in the traditional manner, or they can be brought from the edge of a heather moor to offer a challenge to match some grouse moors.
You choose, we’ll help you find your perfect day.
Partridges are birds in the pheasant family, Phasianidae. They are a non-migratory Old World group.
These are medium-sized birds, intermediate between the larger pheasants and the smaller quails. Partridges are native to Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Partridges are ground-nesting seed-eaters.
According to Greek legend, the first partridge appeared when Daedalus threw his nephew, Perdix, off the sacred hill of Athena in a fit of jealous rage. Supposedly mindful of his fall, the bird does not build its nest in the trees, nor take lofty flights and avoids high places.
