Dumfries and Galloway is extremely popular for pheasant and partridges shooting with many quality estates to choose from providing excellent sport amidst mixed landscapes from game crops to mature oak woodland and conifer plantations.
A daily bag of 100 - 200 birds for eight guns is most common for driven days, but smaller days with bags of 50-100 are often available. Many estates can also provide excellent walked up days producing smaller bags of pheasant, partridge and ducks to ‘back to back’ with larger days providing a real mixed sporting break.

Rough / walked up shooting is possibly the most rewarding of all types of game shooting testing the sportsman’s fitness and agility to hunt wild game over mixed countryside. A mixed bag rather than numbers is often the priority to offer the sportsman a real experience of traditional shooting over well trained gundogs amongst some of Scotland’s most scenic and diverse countryside.
Pheasants, partridges, snipe, wood pigeon and woodcock as well as rabbits are all acceptable quarry on the day which often can be concluded with an evening flight for wild duck on hill lochs and ponds which include mallard, teal and widgeon.
Walked up shooting is normally available for parties of four to eight guns who wish to enjoy a more tradition style of shooting, however, some estates and landowners may be willing to take smaller groups. Venues may vary considerably in terms of the nature of the day some offering small mini drives to add to the occasion.
We have been arranging sporting breaks in Dumfries and Galloway since 1988 for clients worldwide and can help you arrange a package to suit including accommodation, transport and loaders.
