Situated in the heart of mid-Devon, Medland is the home of Ashley Butler, owner of Butler Del Prado. It’s a sporting estate where discerning guns have enjoyed traditional game shooting for many years. Set in rolling countryside, it is now offering you the opportunity of simulated game shooting with some unique and exceptional drives during the spring and summer months. Number of guns and shooting days are strictly limited ensuring each day is exclusive to you and your guests. Coupled with unstinting hospitality and in-house menus using the finest seasonal ingredients, these days will replicate every aspect of a game shooting day with thousands of challenging targets presented to the waiting gun line. Whilst ideally suited for an experienced gun it also offers the ideal introduction to newcomers to game shooting (under supervision). The day at Medland is organized in the same way as our traditional game days and our philosophy is that a shooting day, whether real or simulated, is much more than simply pulling the trigger.
9.30 am Meet for breakfast and meet our hosts Ashley & Becky Butler. This is followed by a safety briefing before shooting FIVE exhilarating drives with two guns per peg, each taking in turns to shoot and load. The targets will simulate driven pheasant, partridge, duck, and grouse testing the skills of any gun. At the end of the second drive, we will take elevenses in the field before returning to the fast-paced shooting.
4.30pm – 4pm After the last drive we will return for drinks and a delicious, leisurely late lunch expertly produced by our in-house chef Becky
