3 of the best!  Our favourite shooting days out on Exmoor


Miltons-
Based just to the North of Dulverton on Exmoor, the Miltons Shoot has been running with great success since the 1980’s with it pioneering shoots.
You get to experience their shoots over 5,000 acres of the best countryside the country has on offer. Their local success and popularity has led to the development of famous pheasant drives such as Collies Head, Howe Wood, Dark Corner, Rookery and Tom’s Hedges.
Since 2005 Miltons has seen many keepering teams elect to return year after year, and this lies mainly with the superlative quality of the birds here.
The main focal point for the shoot is Hollam Farm, located in the middle of the estate, where guns will meet in the morning and then return for tea.
With its all fantastic all-round package, Miltons lays a strong claim to being, genuinely, one of the countries most appealing shoots.

Exmoor Estates-
The driving force behind Exmoor Estates is Tom Flanagan and partner, Caroline. Tom’s lived and worked on Highercombe Farm for over thirty years and is a registered firearms dealer. He established a small driven shoot providing feathered game such as duck and pheasant, with the occasional partridge, snipe and woodcock.

Other shoots are also available, from deer to simulated to clay-pigeon.

The catering for these activities is coordinated by Caroline who produces delicious meals. Choices range from delicious picnic style food for eating out in the field to full blown roast dinners to be consumed back at Highercombe. She can organise the catering to individual needs for parties of up to 20 - nothing is too much trouble!

Depending on the time of year, Highercombe can offer mini driven days of up to 100 birds, with up to 8 guns being accommodated.

Exmoor Hunter Hirelings & Hunter Livery-  
Phil & Heather Roberts offer you a hunt rather than a shoot. They provide fit, well-mannered horses for exempt hunting with The Devon & Somerset Staghounds, Exmoor Foxhounds & The Dulverton West Foxhounds.
Exmoor by tradition is a non-jumping part of the country, but a wide diversity of the countryside can be covered during a day’s hunting. Riding a horse is also a fantastic way to see the magnificent Exmoor National Park and its picturesque views.
Phil & Heather are very keen to encourage 'Hunting Virgins'. Experienced riders who haven't yet tried hunting are welcomed, although a good level of competence & fitness is still required to fully enjoy the experience.
West Country hunting is seen as a really inclusive (not exclusive) field sport, enjoyed by people from all walks of life.  
As with most sports you want to be wearing the correct attire and advice on hunt dress etiquette is provided prior to a hunt.
