Driven Pheasant shooting is the UK’s most popular form of shooting. 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. Driven 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.
