Rich in Tradition
Whether you are looking for high pheasants, really fast partridges, the elusive wood pigeon, European woodcock, sporty driven ducks, or all of them together in one spectacular package, Best Wingshooting will work to bring you the most affordable, enjoyable trip available. Best Wingshooting is constantly looking to expand too, so our hunters will be going to England, Scotland, France, Wales, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Slovakia, and Hungary as our hunting sphere grows. Check often to see our offerings for various parts of Europe.
We have driven shooting packages in many locations across Europe. If you have always dreamed of experiencing a European driven hunt, we offer authentic driven shooting packages you'll love. The lodges and chateaus of our European partners are extraordinary and fit for kings and noblemen — and always at our all-inclusive price. Ask us about big game and fishing opportunities as well, as we have connections to many of the finest lodges associated with these sports.
Shooting Flying at a Legendary Chateau

Partridge - Pheasants - Tweeds and Elevenses!
It is difficult to think of shooting in Europe and not conjur up thoughts of fast flying pheasants passing overhead in the traditional driven style, with beaters and loaders, and pickers up, breeks, ties, wool tweeds and elevenses. At Best Wingshooting, we want to take you back to those incredible Edwardian days both in style, luxury, and numbers of birds. We are able to offer driven shooting in four of the most acclaimed places available – Scotland, England, the Czech Republic, Spain and Slovakia.
You will be greeted at the airport, assisted with luggage and guns, transferred to your manor, chateau, or castle, and enjoy all the creature comforts available while enjoying three days of marvelous driven pheasant shooting.
Expect the birds to be presented to the guns in such a manner as to challenge the expert in one area, while allowing even the novice to have a good chance at a nice bag of birds. Each drive will unique, but you can expect hundreds to thousands of birds to fly over the guns in the course of a day. The birds will be at all heights and one only has to concentrate on their own particular goals to have a wonderful and rewarding outing.
Expect five to seven drives per day with a break around 11:00 AM for the traditional tea and cakes. You will also enjoy a lunch traditional to the area you are hunting, so Scottish fare may be quite different from the Slovakian lunch, but all will be delicious and a great treat as part of your adventure.
