9:30 am - 3:30 pm



We are offering an opportunity for Adult Novices to experience a day of traditional game shooting on a woodland shoot near Penrith, Cumbria.

Each gun will be accompanied by an experienced mentor and will shoot three or four drives which combined have an anticipated bag of 30-40 birds. The emphasis on you having a taster of a driven shoot and learning all that is involved.

We are inviting applications from people who have experience of shooting. We encourage applications from novice shots with their own shotgun certificate and gun but we can accommodate non-certificate holders.

All shoot participants should arrive no later than 9.15 a.m for the morning briefing and safety talk, we aim to be on the peg by 10.00 am, finishing at around 2.30 p.m. The day will be finished on or before 3:00 p.m.

For safety reasons we don’t allow shooting of ground game on driven shoot days.

The shoot aim is to play their part in helping to encourage and educate newcomers into our sport, and to help secure the benefits of shooting and conservation for the future.
