Thread: Market Weighton Shoot

  1. #1

    Market Weighton Shoot

    Has anyone come across a walk one stand one shoot around Market Weighton, East Yorkshire?

    I've been offered a couple of days this season and they do seem pretty cheap if they deliver what is promised, which has made me a bit wary!

    I think the shoot is run by an older guy who I think is a retired lecturer or something similar.

    Anyone any advice? Should it be avoided like the plague or is it a hidden gem so to speak!!!

    I think you'll have to be a little more specific as there's quite a lot of smallish syndicates around Market Weighton.
    There's two old boys use our local gunshop run one in the area I'll ask if they know anything the next time I see them and pm you any info given.

    Is this on Winnies shoot? I presume you mean the earlier in the season the better?

    After being ripped off last year to the tune of 700-00 that would be enough for me to steer well clear.
    ps nowhere near Market Weighton a lot nearer home.

    Never been but I heard that shoot is quite good if you go early season

    Early or late season to be avoided.

    I take 3 days there in oct every year and have always had good value days. Late season can be very patcty.
    I stalk on some of the ground there and they seem to have a lot of game crops in this year.
    Kevin has gone also.
    The thing is with all cheap shooting it cannot be great all of the time you get what you pay for.
    I have again taken 3 days this time.
    The shoot has also gone more driven with 12 guns standing and helpers who walk every drive.
    We on my shoot have a few guns on most days left.
    we are fully driven mixed shoot with partridge pheasant duck and even goose drives.
    Usual day is 9 guns, breakfast, 6-7 drives 120 birds or 400 shots.
    310 per day.
    More expensive then whinnies but not comparable in any way.
