if you want to shoot grouse  and watch dogs work / German pointers /red setters /English pointers  etc     don't hold back on this  its an experience you wont forget  as they all work different  my favourite the Irish setter its a bit like a sheep dog squats down and floats through the heather rather than thrashing about and freeze      for this money  don't waste a chance of a shot not to mention a landscape only seen by a few    travel light    / bring food and a drink /  a camera   mobile phones are not appreciated by keepers   start now for fitness no amount of gym will be enough  if physical work for a living  you have a chance    and book two days off work after to recover after the hill   some of the most referable shooting I have had  do not waste an opportunity like this  I would be there if I could

When are the shoot dates? If I could tie up with my trip up north then I would be keen.

It’s 1100 acres and there are plenty grouse ( or were last season ) the boy is going out to check numbers in a few weeks to check if it’s worth while . Every weekend is almost available but he’s only shooting it twice . But fitness is paramount it’s hard going . If you have dogs do much the better you would be welcome infact encouraged to bring them . I went out for a few hours last year and we shot 3 brace but had plenty chances but I was too knackered to be interested........ I’ll keep you informed if it’s a goer

The number of Grouse last season may not be an indication as to the number of birds this year.

JDog that why he’s having a recce to make sure ..... he’s the only one that shoots it but he’s selling 2 days to pay the rent . He’s very thorough and if he goes out and doesn’t think the guns could get at least 4/5 goes then he won’t do it

As I’ve said just hang in a week or so until he does a bit recce . The dates are flexible anyway as it’s only him

I have dogs that are used to working the Moor, ideal. Fingers & toes crossed.

Need dates as my son travels up there regular for walked up and pigeons. Far too much walking for me to join in.

He's next up there, lockdown permitting around 11/12 July

He's early out scouting for birds the now.

Most Scottish keepers won't do summer counts/ ***** numbers until August really, seen some not confirming dates until mid Aug and don't start till Sept. Still an awful lot could go wrong weather wise.

I imagine it should be a good season for them thou if it carries on like the with no severe rain storms.

 

Sounds a cracking deal thou.

I'd be interested in this either to shoot or just bring my two HWVs to work and put up some birds. I'm in Herefordshire so would need a B&B that would take dogs.

Quick update , boy went out for a quick walk and there are a few birds about . The weather was less than ideal . He’s going out again and I’ll update as soon as he’s confident and we can agree dates as I said there’s a few about but unless it’s going to be decent then he won’t do it . As it stands there are no B and B opening anytime soon but we do have about 8 weeks yet anyway ..... I’ll keep you informed

Awesome way to shoot grouse. Unfortunately my old legs will not cope these days but I have had some great days on the hills at Lowther around Shap.
