Semi-Driven Shooting

Semi-Driven shooting at Drumbangher is a mix of 'walk and stand' shooting conducted at the lower end of the season. Shooting is normally limited to single days suitable for smaller teams of 4 - 6 Guns. Although generally a reduced bag expectation applies, the shooting normally involves many of the named drives shot during the height of the season. Therefore, whilst the size of the bag may be reduced according to time of the season and the lesser number of Guns, the quality of the sport is not. Shooting normally incorporates both pheasant and duck along with other seasonal game for added variety and the shooting and bag can generally be tailored to accommodate the needs of the Client.

As with early and mid-season days, shooting begins at around 09:30 hours with a number of drives and impromptu drives being shot during the course of the day according to bag requirements. A light lunch, normally soup or stew, with tea or coffee afterwards awaits the Guns back in the Shooting Lodge at the end of the day.
