Now is the Time to Book Your European Driven Shoot for the 2023/2024 Season!

Estates are opening their calendars now for private lines for the 2023-24 season

The 2022-23 European driven bird season has recently been completed.  From driven grouse, partridge, and pheasant in the United Kingdom to mallards and pheasant in Denmark to a great mixed bag shoot in Burgundy, France to the finest driven red-legged partridge in Spain, we had an exceptional season.  The reports were outstanding from several private lines and individual guns we booked.  Most groups are returning!
The lore, tradition, history, and excitement of driven shooting is not easily replicated anywhere in the world other than Europe.  We represent the finest estates and align our clients with the very best shooting opportunities in the U.K., Denmark, France, and Spain.  The estates are starting to open their calendars now for private lines for the 2023/2024 season.  If you have 6-10 guns, now is the time to book.  Here is some excellent two-day shoot availability for the season ahead:
