Rolling patchwork hillsides…welcoming pub town…unforgettable shooting

At Delaney & Sons our primary goal is to remove the barriers to entry often encountered with driven shooting by providing a seamless, hassle-free experience that integrates our guests into the countryside and the local fabric. We want our guests to succeed and build confidence, so we have shooting instructors on hand to help with high incoming birds. With two primary shoots packages in Wales, The Beacons Shoot and The Black Mountain Shoot (both described below), we are able to accommodate the expert shot as well as those new to driven shooting. Both are tailored, full week experiences, shooting progressive bags at a different estate each day. We strive to honor the traditions and hunting etiquette of this sport, while avoiding pretense.

The British driven shooting scene can seem intimidating and elitist to American bird hunters, but that’s generally because it is misunderstood. Fortunately, a couple (Liz and Sean Delaney) from Pennsylvania are on a mission to change that.

Marcus Jannsen writing for Covey Rise 

The signature drive at Riverside has the guns at the base of a cliff with their backs to the river. Pheasants are driven over the cliff-edge where they are high and wheeling as they shoot out from the wooded cliff side and try to curl back quickly to the safety of the trees. This drive was a thrilling climax to the week and it felt like the preceding days shooting had been pointing towards this moment, which was over all-too-soon.
