Brigands Shoot

As you arrive at the Brigands it soon becomes apparent that the pheasants are going to be high! The hillsides are better described as mountains and frequently the birds are flushed from bracken, gorse or a cover crop on top of them. The Brigands is certainly not for the faint hearted, but there are always an array of birds at different heights throughout a drive. This enables you to gain your confidence and then really test yourself on a high bird. We meet at Bryn Cleifion Hall for coffee beside the open fire in the sitting room, then draw pegs and proceed to the veranda to meet the loaders for the day. Between the three morning drives we break for champagne and sloe gin, then soup and nibbles, before returning to the Hall for lunch. Alternatively, you can shoot through and have a later lunch if you prefer, rather than returning to the estate for the afternoon drives.

In Detail…

“Standing near the towering waterfall on the Seven Twenty drive at Brigands, mesmerised by the pheasants in an apparent distant orbit, it is hard to think about anything other than the moment in which you are immersed. It is without doubt one of the greatest drives in contemporary driven game shooting.” Mike Barnes, Fieldsports 2007

08/01/13 Amazing place; the views, the drives and the whole layout. Absolutely unforgettable days shooting and superb hospitality. Plentiful birds at various ranges for all skill levels. Big thanks to Gwyn and Ann Evans and their team for a memory I will treasure forever.

Had a fantastic day at the Brigands Shoot, so many good drives there, with the marsh being one of the best high drives I've ever been on. Also the Oaks and Welsh Haven just a few to mention. I take my hat off to the keeper that looked after that beat. Brilliant, world class day and good company. Richard Brassington 14/11/10

Stunning shoot, with a number of drives that can humble even the best gun. The Oaks, Marshes and Rock Hard are some of the best drives you could ever wish to shoot, with many birds on The Marshes out of range, at times. Shoot is at it's best in October through to early December.
