The Sedborough Farm Driven Shoot: North Devon

PUBLIC SHOOTS/HUNTS

The Sedborough Farm shoot: and adjoining land provides us with the base for our ever popular small mixed driven days. The day consists of a driven day for pheasants and partridge in the morning followed by the chance to shoot some snipe, woodcock or wild duck in the afternoon.
The days are a great social occasion, relaxed and informal, with the guns and beaters mixing. Just because the days are small in bag numbers it doesn’t mean the shooting isn’t challenging.

The topography lends itself well to show good challenging pheasants, with every shot a different angle.

Tony Barnards team of crack shots once again proved just how hard the birds can be. It’s always a pleasure to see the face of a gun that has just bagged his first woodcock or snipe, and we also see good numbers of mallard, teal and widgeon coming into our ponds.

Lunch is included.

These days are not sold with a bag figure but a team of 8 guns will expect to fire 150-250 cartridges on a day. The bag will be whatever they can shoot for this figure and in the 2006-7 this ranged between 41 and 68 birds.

No ground game to be shot, under any circumstance.
