Our pigeon shooting days are based around decoying birds, and roost shooting is available at certain times of year. We shoot pigeons year-round and depending upon the time of year, we may start early in the morning and finish early or start late and finish late, due to the length of daylight.
We may have up to 6 guns on the day so it may take the team a little while to set you up, but please bear with us. Once you’re set up in the hide we will leave you to enjoy your day, whilst the team go about their day keeping the pigeons on the move. We will be in regular contact with you, and if necessary, we will move you during the course of the day to give you the best opportunities.
Home Counties Sporting (Southern) Limited shoot all year round for pigeons but we do advise any clients coming from overseas to contact us in advance. Pigeon shooting is very much dependent on the weather and conditions.
