The Castle Milk and Corrie Syndicate is a well-established shoot. It is located on a fantastic estate on the outskirts of Lockerbie in the Scottish Lowlands of Dumfries and Galloway. The shoot has prime access, being only 10 minutes from the A74 and is set in excellent surroundings.
An enjoyable day to be had by all with its members, offering both a great fun day with value for money in the current financial climate.
The shoot is of prime location within the lowlands near to the Scottish/English Border and boasts in excess of 4,500 acres, giving plenty of scope and variety to all attending Guns.
The shoot compromises of several duck flight ponds, clear fell and spruce woodland areas, and and is set in a prime location for seasonal woodcock.
Safety is our number one priority. We have a fully comprehensive health and safety policy incorporating a risk assessment for all sporting activities and shoot management aspects for the syndicate. A safety brief is delivered by our team captains at the start of all shoot days.
The day's proceedings.
To run our Saturday syndicate as planned and has an expectation of 16 guns on any shoot day, these would be split into two teams of 8 and managed on a stand-1, beat-1 basis.
The Syndicate meets at 08:45hrs for a 09:00hrs start, the teams are briefed by the team captains, this includes a brief on safety and layout for the day. We will then proceed to the drives for the morning. At around midday we will head to the shoot bothey were we will enjoy a comfortable packed lunch away from the elements, enjoy each others company with plenty of usual chatter on which birds were missed and the performance on the other teams beating.
The teams will then proceed to the drives for the afternoon and will finish around 15:30hrs, the team will again head to the shoot bothey and enjoy another short well deserved break prior to proceeding to the flight ponds for evening flight where a variety of wild ducks are on offer.
What to expect.
An enjoyable day with the syndicate and its members, plenty of laughter and with some excellent scenery, a variety of terrain and areas to shoot. Not to forget some excellent quality and challenging birds. The quarry to be expected includes pheasants, woodcock and the occasional partridge, evening duck with some challenging pigeons thrown in too, all which have proven to be a challenge for its members over past seasons. .
This shoot is ideal for the experienced, novice and both female and young shooters as we encourage and promote the future of the sport. Any Guns wishing to bring their partners and/or dogs with them for the day are most welcome to do so..
What not to expect.
Champagne breakfast, the sky full of birds and members of the British Aristocracy
