Shooting on Exmoor Estates
Feathered Game Shooting
Depending on the time of year, Highercombe can offer mini driven days of up to 100 birds – predominantly pheasant and duck but with occasional partridge, woodcock and snipe, too.
Teams of 6 guns are normal but any number, from 4 to 8 guns, can be accommodated.
It is helpful if guns can provide their own 4x4 transport but if this is not possible please notify us in advance. If required, loaders/professional instructors are available – call for prices.
The day will include refreshments and lunch or dinner, depending on your requirements.
Price: £28.00 per bird (inc. VAT @ 20%)
Most teams will shoot cartridges at three to one – or up to five to one on the high duck later in the season.

Simulated Game Shooting
Tom provides what many believe are the best and most varied simulated-game lay-outs on Exmoor.
The varied topography of Highercombe allows for the simulation of several different kinds of shooting – pheasant, partridge, duck, pigeon and grouse.A typical day would run like this:
09.15 a.m. Assemble for coffee and briefing
10.15 a.m. 1st Drive – partridge
11.15 a.m. 2nd Drive – pheasant
12.15 p.m. 3rd Drive – flighting duck (from hides)
13.15 p.m. Lunch
14.30 p.m. 4th Drive – pigeon (from hides)
15.30 p.m. 5th Drive – grouse (from butts)
16.30 p.m. Refreshments at Highercombe.
No dress-code. Fibre wads only. Normally, guns should expect to use 300/400 cartridges.
Price: £1600.00 per day (inc. VAT @ 20%) for a team of up to 8 guns.
To include 3000 clays, refreshments and, if required, a sixth drive at an additional cost of £200 – this would need 24 hours notice.
Larger teams can be catered for at an additional cost, although this would require some or all guns (up to 16) to double up.
It is helpful if guns can provide their own 4x4 transport but if this is not possible please notify us in advance. If required felt-wad cartridges and loaders/ instructors are available – call for prices.
The varied shooting does require experienced and confident shots. The day would not be suitable for novice guns.
Open season for simulated game Febuary - October.
