SIMULATED GAME

SITUATED IN THE HEART OF MID-DEVON, MEDLAND IS THE HOME OF ASHLEY BUTLER, OWNER OF BUTLER DEL PRADO.

Set in rolling countryside, it is now offering you the opportunity of simulated game shooting in association with Taw Valley Sporting, providing some unique and exceptional drives during the spring and summer months. Numbers 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. On arrival you will be greeted by your hosts and invited to take breakfast. This is followed by a safety briefing before shooting a number of exhilarating drives with two guns per peg, each taking it 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. After the last drive we will return for drinks and a delicious, leisurely lunch expertly produced by our in-house chef, Becky, sharing her passion for presenting game and fish dishes using seasonal produce. Menus, wines and the shooting day itself can be tailored to suit your personal requirements by arrangement.

With the knowledge that teams of guns have differing requirements for their day you can choose the level of hospitality you require for your day with days starting at £2880 per team of 16 guns or £175 per individual peg.
