Driven Grouse Shooting on Bransdale Moor
I wanted to say how much I enjoyed my day at Bransdale. It was an absolute credit to your team. The keepers were charming and enthusiastic and very keen to hear how North York’s Moors compared and if I was having a good day. Apart from there being masses of grouse and a very beautiful place which has clearly recently had significant investment including rebuilt and new butts (in the right place too!) there was a really positive buzz about the place.
The other thing which was just fantastic was the halting of the beating line at 100 yards out – just as we have discussed – and one or two lads coming forward after a few moments and asking if one needed help. So I think Connie my dog picked about 70 grouse. That in itself made my year! Anyway thank you I had a great day. Please pass on my bravos to your team.
I had the good fortune of shooting a day of late season grouse at Snilesworth in October of 2014. William Powell put on a great day. We started with drinks and dinner at the Black Swan with our own living room and Katherine making sure our night was superb. The living room had the wood burning fireplace, the bar and our dining table with decanters and wine awaiting. Everyone had a nice dinner and retired to be greeted with a full breakfast to be ready for the day ahead. On my shoot day the entire William Powell team was present.
We had three drives prior to lunch. Chris Maxted was my loader and made sure I was looked after and encouraged. James Chapel was there as well to give encouraging words and insight. We had a great lunch in Bob’s shoot box and enjoyed some game off of Snilesworth. The afternoon the conditions were a bit tougher with higher winds and some rain. It was a truly great day. Many thanks to William Powell, Mark Osborne and especially Bob Cieslukowski.
