Shoot Advisory Visits

Following numerous requests, we have developed an advisory service where an experienced member of the game and gundog team will visit your shoot and give expert guidance and advice on the ground. This is then backed up by a detailed report. 

During the visit we will examine a wide range of options to help you improve your shoot, including:

• Rearing and releasing birds – release pen design, construction and location
• Increasing your returns on the birds you release
• Feeding and how to hold birds on your shoot
• Habitat management and creation – flushing points etc.
• Cover crops and creating new drives
• Driving covers and improving the quality of the birds from different drives
• Providing variety on the shoot day from different game species
• Pest and predator control
• Setting up a shoot on virgin land & shoot viability
• Assessing your shoots potential
• and much more.

The cost of an advisory visit for BASC members is £450 + VAT including the report (Please note: additional charges may apply if an overnight stay is required).

This advisory service is also available for non-members at a price of £600 + VAT. If you would like further information or would like to book a visit please contact us on 01244 573019 or email.
