Driven Pheasant Shooting Scotland
For sheer strength and power of flight pheasants are hard to beat. From the 1st October until the end of January, pheasants are the mainstay of many estates because they offer a great sporting challenge to sportsmen around the country. Driven high and fast, maybe drifting and curling with a tailwind to add extra spice, pheasants are a sporting test of experience and skill. We are lucky to have our very own estates that offer excellent value for money and fantastic sport in Scotland. We also have exclusive days on some of England’s most famous pheasant and Partridge shoots which are certain to test the best shots in the game.
Walked Up Pheasant Shooting Days
Walked up pheasant and partridge shooting is a different challenge as they burst up from the bracken to take the unwary by surprise. We offer days of all sizes (none too small) for any number of guns in a party that are looking for fantastic value for money days out where they can shoot several different species in one day.
Pheasants refer to several genera within the subfamily Phasianinae, of the family Phasianidae in the order Galliformes.
Pheasants are characterised by strong sexual dimorphism, males being highly ornate with bright colours and adornments such as wattles and long tails. Males are usually larger than females and have longer tails. Males play a part in rearing the young. Pheasants typically eat seeds and some insects.
The best-known is the Common Pheasant, which is widespread throughout the world in introduced feral populations and in farm operations. Various other pheasant species are popular in aviaries, such as the Golden Pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus).
