Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags – Full Driven Day for the beginner / novice game shot

Due to the outstanding success of our previous Driven Days for the Novice Shot, we will return to Leys Estate Crathes on Saturday 6th November.

It is a 50 bird day, commencing at 09.00am, dram and elevens around 11.00, then shoot through.  We will finish off the day with a post shoot 2 course hot lunch in the Crathes Beat Fishing Hut.  A stunning hut on the banks of the River Dee, with a cosy wood burning stove, toilet and comfy sofas.

Each gun must have a coach for the day, you can take your own but they must be a shot gun certificate holder and be an experienced gun on full driven days. Coaches will be supplied for those who require them at a cost of £50 per coach.

Minimum 6 guns max 9
Gun Hire available at a cost of £50
For ladies who would like to experience the day without the pressure of shooting there are 10 spaces for ladies to do just that for £30 pp.

As this event is a fixed cost event, the cost per person will depend on the numbers attending, 9 guns – £230 per gun, 8 guns – £259 per gun, 7 guns – £296  and 6 guns – £345.  At all our previous driven days we have always had 9 guns.
