Driven Shooting: A 3000 acre estate near Mold, North Wales.

Categories:
Driven Shoots
Wales

Shoot Information: (NEW FOR 2007-8 season )  A  1-6 shoot not for the faint hearted 100-150 bird days they can put on 200 if asked the shoot is based on number of shots, you will see plenty of bird! knocking  them down is another matter.

The drives consist of the following:

DRIVES:

Keepers drive: Open banked hill completely full of cover crop includes mustard etc  birds fly over guns at 40 yd’s plus into woodland behind.

Hill Sixty:  From woodland and with the option of a cover crop which lies left at the top of the wood. Later season push birds from this cover crop to the wood and then beat over guns as it says 60 its sure a high spot.

Pembed Uchaf:  An extreme drive from cover crop and a fir tree plantation with hardwood left of where guns are placed you have to be kidding not for the faint hearted gun. There is an option on direction depending on wind and where guns can be placed depending on skills.

All The Wood: Game bank with cover crop and plenty of height 50 yd birds the norm here and snap shooting between lanes in the trees provides for the most challenging of drives. Shoot owner Brian Hatton in photograph points to the snap shot drive all the wood.
 
Gorse Bank:  From cover crop and Gorse on a rounded steep bank again 50 plus yard birds. And is edged by fir trees running from the mountain top to the track.
Plas Yw:  A large area of cover crop on a bank summit gorse below this and a woodland in the gully behind the guns to the right so a joint effort pushing bids initially from cover crop onto woodland over guns and then an option of driving from the back wood  depends on wind on the day 50-60yd birds.

The Beeches: From cover crop behind tall 60 yd plus mature Beech trees, pushing birds over and onto a hard wood the guns situated in the middle here between both woods only for serious shots, fast high birds presented here, the option is to put guns at the bottom of this drive and push the back wood,  not quite so challenging but still 40 yd birds and very killable.
