Guided Pigeon Shooting

The Woodpigeon is quickly proving itself to be the ultimate sporting quarry. Fast flying, sharp eyed, completely unpredictable, and totally wild. The pigeon is sure to thoroughly test your shooting and field craft skills to the limit!

Often referred to as the 'poor mans grouse', there is certainly nothing poor about the sport that this bird has to offer!

Pigeon are not a game bird, and are classed as vermin at present, so they are shot under General Licence to ensure that crop damage is minimised. This doesn’t stop them being one of the most sporting birds, giving the shooter a huge variety of shots, as well as a serious challenge.

David and his team know exactly which crops the birds will be attacking, giving you the best opportunities for a challenging and exciting day.

David Beardsmore Shooting works with professional pigeon guides who have extensive knowledge and many years of experience. They have access to thousands of acres and is some of the most consistent areas to which pigeons, in large numbers, can be found.
