The Grouse shooting season runs from August 12th to December 10th on mainland Great Britain.
August 12 marks the start of the grouse shooting season and is often referred to as the Glorious 12th. Throughout this period shooters from all over the world head for the moors of Scotland and Northern England. The grouse are wild and not artificially reared and driven grouse shooting is the only commercially viable means of running a grouse moor helping to protect this vital habitat.
Most grouse shooting takes place in a formal setting with birds being driven over the shooters. The Guns are placed in butts and the birds are driven towards them by beaters. There is a strict code of conduct governing behaviour on the grouse moor for both safety and etiquette. Grouse shooting can also be undertaken by ‘walking up’ grouse over pointers, or by flushing the birds with other dogs.
We are pleased to offer Driven Grouse days through the season on some of the finest moors in England and Scotland.
