About Really Wild sim days
The Royal Berkshire Shooting School is often credited with having pioneered both the concept and sport of simulated game shooting, having hosted our first Really Wild Day in 1994. Since then, we have led the way in creating and providing the most exhilarating simulated shooting.
We host days from early February through to late September, on five beautiful estates all based within the Home Counties. Our stable of estates include the iconic Highclere Castle and Englefield House, as well as Faccombe House, Well Barn and West Woodhay House. With each estate offering a different experience, we use the varied topography to present the most realistic and exhilarating shooting. We are one of the few simulated shooting providers to use manual traps, which means we can change the direction, height and speed of ‘birds’ at any time to really challenge our guests.
A typical Really Wild Clay Day begins with guests meeting for breakfast. Depending upon which estate we are shooting at, this may be at the main house, a shoot lodge or a country pub. After a safety briefing, we draw pegs and set off for the first drive. A normal drive has eight pegs, with two Guns to a peg. Each drive is split, so that one Gun loads for one half and then swaps and shoots for the second half. Drives will replicate driven partridge, pheasant and even grouse.
The day consists of four drives. After the second drive, we break for Elevenses. The third drive is a fun competition where guests battle it out for the title of ‘Top Gun’ with the fourth and final drive being something of a ‘grand finale’. Each Gun can expect to shoot between 250 and 750 cartridges… it is up to them how fast they go. We take lunch at the end of the day as this allows guests to enjoy a well-earned drink and raise a glass to the team that has won the competition.
We can accommodate all levels of experience and are able to arrange instruction, gun and vehicle hire and cartridges where required.
From champagne receptions on the manicured lawns of Well Barn Estate to private suppers in the Englefield Dining Room overlooking the Deer Park, we take just as much pride in the après shooting element of our events as the shooting itself. After all, the devil is in the detail!
Whether you are a single Gun joining one of our incredibly popular syndicate days, or taking your own day for 16 guests for work or pleasure, you are guaranteed the very best day!
