Hi Luke

Harborough Rocks

Great day out 

£195 for a full day plus cartridges including breakfast and dinner

I think I fired circa 700 last time !

Don’t know how far you want to travel but the six mile bottom shoot is great as is the quidenham shoot which is near thetford , both a great day out , plenty shooting and plenty of food and drink but I guess that may be off the menu at present TIL we get the all clear !

Black Grove in Cumbria 9000 odd clays over your head in the day. I shot 300 cartridges on the last drive!! Full hospitality throughout the day.

I've heard a rumour that there is going to be simulated game days on the Harewood Estate in Yorkshire starting this year.

The rumoured prices are around the £400 mark but will have a high standard of hospitality, and not your average pie and chips in a pub, straw bail shoot.

Sounds like it's worth keeping your eyes open for.

Another thumbs up for the Quidenham Estate, our syndicate shot this at the end of June, no hospitality due to Covid but we all took a packed lunch, just like a shoot day.

Atb Steve.

It's run by Joe Neville on Lant Lane Tansley, same family as JF Nevilles gun shop Alfreton. 

I have never done one before but told to take 500cartridges.

I was invited to one there. We were told to take 750 ctgs. Most people fired 650. As a non clay shooter I got bored and only fired 375. I did very much enjoy his simulated grouse drive though.

edit: absolutely nothing like a real day’s shooting.

I did one once in Devon where I could feel the heat of the barrels through the forend of my  OU and probably fired over 500, on a real shoot day, say 100-120 birds, I might fire 50 cartridges

If people enjoy it that's fine but as above, it's nothing like a real day's shooting
