British Style Driven Pheasant Shoot | Alan Paine USA

BRTISH STYLE DRIVEN PHEASANT SHOOT

Driven Pheasant shooting is the UK’s most popular form of shooting. First introduced by the Romans, Pheasant shoots are now widespread across the UK and are still to this day renowned for the history and traditions which are seen on a classic driven day. On a day’s shooting, pheasants are flushed from woodland and cover in a direction in which they will pass over the line of 9 to 12 guns. The difficulty of the shooting varies depending on the topography the pheasants are covering. Generally speaking, the higher the bird, the more skill it takes to successfully shoot, and we therefore ensure that each team is always presented with suitable shoots to match their abilities, so as to ensure that an enjoyable day is had by all.

WHAT TO WEAR ON A BRITISH STYLE DRIVEN PHEASANT SHOOT?

At a formal driven shoot, it’s traditional for both men and women to wear a three-piece tweed suit comprising of a waterproof tweed coat, or tweed blazer, tweed shooting waistcoat and breeks / breeches, or trousers. Wearing smart clothing is seen as a mark of respect to both your host and the quarry.

Tweeds are often more muted in colour; greens and browns for a pheasant or pigeon shoot and darker blues or heather tones for a grouse shoot to blend in with the surrounding countryside and avoid being easily spotted by the birds.
