INVITATION TO SCOTTISH DRIVEN HIGHLAND GROUSE SHOOTING WITH DON CURRIE

9-400x400Imagine, if you will, witnessing the moor heaving from grouse hidden under the heather as you stand armed in your grouse butt and attempt a left and right as a 60 mph covey cloud of Grouse are driven towards you. Highland grouse are typically sporting amidst a dramatic backdrop of moor covered purple heather clad glens and bubbling burns.

Driven Scottish Highland Grouse shooting at Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park, at Invercauld, offers some of the best of what Scottish country sports has to offer, a wonderful Highland Estate steeped in history and neighboring Balmoral. The Cairngorms National Park is Scotland’s second largest National Park at approximately 1,400 square miles / 3,800 square km.

The Estate provides a magnificent backdrop for the superb driven highland grouse shooting that will satisfy even the most demanding sportsman. Spanning 108,000 acres as a whole, Invercauld is divided into separate beats; Gairnshiel beat deemed one of the most prolific.

Your coach and mentor watches your gun mount, your swing.. and your miss. He calms you, because frankly, you have never experienced anything so thrilling and challenging as this. You refocus, follow his calm voice instructions and soon you are knocking your first grouse out of the sky. You concentrate on right to left, then left to right, then high incomers, taking shots from the front and back of your grouse butt, passing your firearm back and forth to your loader, and each time, as your coach makes small adjustments to your style, he encourages you, and he congratulates you as you move up the ladder of complete grouse shooting success.

You are standing on the edge of one of the largest cut corn fields you have ever seen. Coming at you in an unbroken string, from as far away as you can see, and to each side of you as far as you can look, are doves. Not 10, or 100, or 1,000, but millions. Your coach and mentor watches you gun mount, your swing, – and your miss. He calms you, because, frankly, you have never seen anything like this. You refocus, follow his calm voice instructions and soon you are knocking birds out of the sky. You concentrate on right to left, then left to right, then high incomers, then birds at a distance and each time, as your coach makes small adjustments to your style, he encourages you, and he congratulates you as you move up the ladder of complete shooting success.
