The Shoot

At Huntsham we pride ourselves on producing extremely challenging Exmoor birds, with high pheasants and partridge flying off our stunning valleys from both game crops and woodland. Signature drives such as Warren’s Hill, Beech Bank and Lower Hill ensure that quality is the order of the day. We enjoy hosting teams of all abilities and can tailor our days to fit in with your individual requirements.

With average bags of between 250 and 300, we can happily tailor the day to fit your teams needs with bigger bags possible earlier in the season.

If you have any questions or would like to book a day, please feel free to contact us by email or by telephone.
