Pheasants are the UK’s most hunted birds. Introduced here by the Romans, they are now widespread. Pheasants are also well known throughout Western Europe, China, central Asia and America. They feed on a diet of seeds, berries and insects, preferring a habitat of wooded agricultural lowland which can provide both roosting and feeding sites. Males mate with more than one female and females undertake all the duties of incubating and rearing the chicks alone.
Commonly Pheasants are flushed from cover crops and flushing points or from wooded areas on higher ground over a line of 8-9 standing guns. Pheasant shooting can be found throughout the UK catering for an array of sporting abilities from the extreme high bird shoots which can found in parts of Wales, West Country and Yorkshire/Northumberland, but also in the hillier parts of Scotland to traditional lowland shoots found in the South East, Suffolk, Cotswolds and surrounding areas.
Whether it is the high curling Pheasant of North Yorkshire or the West Country or classic driven Partridges closer to London or up in the Scottish Borders we access to the best shooting available in the UK.
