Thread: Pheasant shooting Ireland

    Pheasant shooting Ireland

    The following is a compilation video of our first few weeks out on our Pheasant syndicate during November in Northern Ireland.

    Not a lot of shooting action, mainly dog work, as we try to shoot a couple of birds each day per person.

    The dog is my cocker spaniel Dinky, he is a half decent rough shooting dog although I don't always allow him to retrieve as he can be hard in the mouth.

    I hope you enjoy the scenery, if nothing else, and Happy Christmas to you all:

    Looks like you had better weather this year. Looks like lots of fun. Did you run into any woodcock?

    That hill country with gorse/furze and fern makes a change from the 'salted' fields for the gentry.

    Rough ground,steep hills and men and dog had to work,bluudy good show old chap!

    I saw my first ever wild pheasants in Ireland in some very rough Sika ground and thought at the time how different it was to the photos of shooters one see`s with their released birds taken in open paddocks.

    It amazes me as to how many Aussies are lurking on this forum as members of the Secret Squirrel Society.

    Touch wood it hasn't rained once on his this year whereas last year it rained nearly every day.

    We've shot a few woodcock on different outings, 10 was the best day but not on this ground.

    Thanks very much. Yes it makes a change from driven shooting, you certainly have to work for the birds here & you need to be fit.

    These are released birds aswell but they leave the pens about 2 months before any shooting so they soon get wild.

    I know people here that shoot birds that are released an hour before they arrive and in nothing like your challenging shooting ground.
