West Country, England

Plunging V shaped valleys produce pheasants and partridges to humble the most competent shots. 

The beautiful landscapes of the West Country have long been acknowledged as the spiritual home of high pheasant shooting. The best shoots are located on Exmoor, where over the last twenty years we have been closely associated with the development of some of the finest shooting estates including Stuckeridge, Wellshead, Loyton, Combe Sydenham, Molland and Miltons.

The latter is a perfect example of what the West Country has to offer. The Howe Wood Drive is quite simply stunning both visually and in showing birds. Guns stand in a meadow through which the River Exe meanders, surrounded by vertiginous slopes wooded with oak, resplendent in autumn foliage. Adroit beating through well-managed cover produces an extraordinarily steady flow of eye-wateringly high pheasants that cascade over the guns for up to 45 minutes of sporting heaven.

Within easy access by train, car and plane via Exeter and Bristol airports and with sport of this calibre, a sojourn to the West Country should be high on every gun's list.
