Simulated Game Shooting

"You've tried the rest, now try the best!"

Kingfisher's core business is built around a niche market for simulated game shooting using clay targets. The focus is on quality drives and challenging targets, designed for shooting enthusiasts who seek a close representation of the real thing.

Be prepared for a real challenge and an outstanding experience!

Drives are presented to cover:

  • High, fast, driven pheasant (60 - 80 yds)
  • Driven pheasant (35 - 45 yds)
  • Driven partridges (simulating the classic grey partridge drive)
  • Driven Grouse (fast targets approaching the butts)
  • Duck flighting (variety of height, angle and speed, simulating flighting to decoys)
  • Flushes (always good fun for teams of guns in competition)
  • The degree of difficulty of each drive can be scaled to suit team ability.
Shooting takes place deep inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park in Wensleydale, overlooking the majestic Bolton Castle. We offer the most realistic, challenging and exciting drives in stunning countryside.
