Shoot Advisory Visits
Following numerous requests we have developed an additional advisory service whereby an experienced member of the game and deer management 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 & releasing birds – release pen design, construction & location
• Increasing your returns on the birds you release
• Feeding & how to hold birds on your shoot
• Habitat management & creation – flushing points etc.
• Cover crops & creating new drives
• Driving covers & 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.
