Scotland Pheasants

      I must say, the shooting was exceptional. The bag for five days - three Driven Pheasant and Partridge days and two days of walked-up rough shooting over dogs and an evening duck flights was 283 Red Leg Partridges, 725 Pheasant, 11 Hare, 7 Rabbits, sundry, Widgeon, Mallard, Teal, Snipe, Woodcock and Pink-foot Goose....and a team of happy hunters!

      When you think of testing High Pheasant usually South West England is the area that springs to mind, with Devon taking the honours. But one of the best kept secrets for the finest quality in that great shooting sport is South West Scotland! 
      There the steep hills and valleys are tailor-made for the presentation of stratospheric game birds. This fabulous Pheasant terrain, combined with stunning scenery, uncongested roads and the warmest of welcomes make it clear why the more knowledgeable overseas sportsman is opting for just north of the border for their Fall Pheasant shooting.

     The Corsewall Estate is a prime place to find the prime shooting. Close to Port Patrick, right on the Irish Sea, this Estate has a long and rich sporting heritage. Ken Duglan and Peter Trotman,  his Head Keeper, have, in their years of tenure, taken this long established Pheasant shoot and improved upon it immensely! 

      The introduction of partridge, redesigned covers, and new drives has created one of the most challenging and charming shoots in the UK.  They are actually becoming best known for High Birds at reasonable prices! Good accommodations have always been a key ingredient to any shooting vacation and Ken can arrange a setting to match your budget, either in a private house or in one of several nearby hotels.
       This past November, our team of Guns plus the HD TV crew, spent 5 fantastic days at The Corsewall Estate. We stayed at The Fernhill Hotel, which sits high on the hillside over-looking the small fishing Village of Port Patrick. We found it quite comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. And, after bracing everyone for the spectre of the usual Scottish Fall weather, we actually enjoyed unseasonably bright skies, warm weather and towering Pheasant drives, much to the delight of the camera men!
