Winwoods Shoot is situated on the edge of the ancient and magnificent Wyre Forest, the largest woodland National Nature Reserve in the country, on the border of Worcestershire and Shropshire. The shoot is less than one hour West of Birmingham and half an hour from the M5. Pheasants are driven over deep wooded valleys where the established drives provide challenging high birds.
Whilst the variety of landscape supports shooting of all abilities, the long established drives provide the most challenging high birds for the most experienced shot.
Winwoods produces some excellent early partridge and duck shooting in September and October. The shoot is famous for testing duck shooting off the numerous pools on the estate, some of which have been in situ for years, and others new. The shoot offers some of the best varied pheasant shooting in the area, and the high quality of the birds shown ensure the return of teams year after year.
Single or double days back to back from 100 - 400 birds can be arranged to accommodate 7 to 10 guns in a team, single guns, and small teams are all welcome. Please ring to discuss individual requirements.
On arrival you will be greeted by the shoot host with coffee and tea before the briefing and drawing of pegs. On a typical DB shooting day at the Winwood Estate the guns meet for breakfast at 9am.
