Walked-Up Shooting

- The excitement can start at any time! -

William Powell Sporting is delighted to offer a fantastic variety of walked-up shooting ranging from walked up pheasant, partridge, duck and rabbit low ground “rough days” in the South of England to challenging walked up grouse shooting on the steep-sided faces of the Cairngorm mountains in the highlands of Scotland.

Walked Up shooting is incredibly popular, and we work hard to be able to present exciting and varied options for all types of quarry. Walked up days can either be shot traditionally with a team of guns walking in a parallel line shooting game as it flushes from cover in front of the line, or over dogs. When shooting over dogs, the team of guns walk the ground with the dog (usually a pointer/setter) quartering in front of them. Upon scenting the game, the dog goes onto “point” and stands motionless allowing the guns to come into position and shoot the game as it is flushed by the dog.

As a result of our direct involvement in the management of a number of low ground and grouse Estate’s, we are delighted to be able to tailor all walked up shooting to the precise requirements of each team. If walked up shooting is of interest, please do not hesitate to contact the team and we will be delighted to present bespoke options to you.


In addition to offering spectacular driven grouse Phoines can also offer walked-up, mini driven and rough shooting.

Rough shoot days are with bag expectations of between 40 – 50 head of game (Pheasant, Partridge, Ducks, Hares, Rabbits, Pigeons) for between four and six guns.

Mini Driven days are for teams of six to eight guns, shooting 70 – 90 head of game (Pheasant, Partridge, Ducks, Hares, Rabbits, Pigeons).

Walked up days can be tailored to suit each team. Bags size vary typically 5 – 15 brace of Grouse.


This premier Grouse Moor can also offer walked up days with bags from 5-20 brace. All of the days will be guided by one of the dedicated keepers who will ensure that you’ll have a day to remember.

Each walked up day will be tailored to individual needs. Species that be shot each day include Pheasant, Grouse, Pigeons and Rabbits.


One of the country’s most consistent Grouse moors in recent years plays host to a small amount of walked up shoots days. With days ranging from 5-15 brace, these days are fantastic to anyone new to the sport or a group of father and sons wishing to spend some valuable time together. Days are completely bespoke and can include Grouse, Pheasants, Partridges, Pigeons and Rabbits.
