Pre-Course

We have had a few request from people that they would like to head up the day before and stay at the hut.

If that interests you, then come out the afternoon before the course, spend the evening glassing the Fallow then head back to the hut for dinner and stay the night at the shared lodgings in the hunters hut. A cooked breakfast sets you up for course ahead. There is an extra charge to cover the additional food costs, simply grab extra ‘tickets’ – limited numbers, limited bunk beds.

Include a hunt?

We are, after all, on a hunting block! If you would be interested in going for a hunt either the Saturday before the course, or Sunday afternoon, after the course – just get in touch. We can accommodate you.

Ironically, I am a person running a site about the great outdoors and struggling to get outdoors.One day, or more likely, middle of the night, I decided that working in nightclubs and spending my days in dark studios wasn't that healthy. It was time to get back outdoors! Somewhere along the way I picked up hunting and competitive shooting.Editor and contributor. Gear addicted. Really like my coffee.
