The brand new grouse complex at the Royal Berkshire.

‘The most exciting and realistic grouse you can experience outside of The Moors’.

The Purdey Grouse Moor

For most shooting men and women, driven Grouse represents the most challenging, dramatic and exhilarating form of game shooting there is.   The speed and guile of Grouse is legendary and so, with the season fast approaching, the need to practice and prepare for your first day on the Moor is essential.  Not only will this ensure you are confident and better equipped to enjoy the day, but it will also remind you as to the essential safety rules unique to grouse shooting.

With The Glorious 12th in mind, August sees The Royal Berkshire Shooting School launch “The Purdey Grouse Moor”.  Designed by experienced Grouse shots, “The Moor” comprises three different butts with nearly 20 traps.  Each butt is different to the other and each butt simulates a specific type and variety of Grouse shooting whether it be crossing coveys, driven birds beneath your feet or just a variety of different horizons.  Ultimately you can practice every possible scenario that you would find on The Moors.

Simply put, there is simply no better place to learn and practice your Grouse shooting. But don’t just take our word for it… upon shooting “The Purdey Grouse Moor”, John Queen, one of the most respected Grouse keepers in the country stated: “Simply the very best simulation of butt positioning you can get.  You have to use your feet and it demands the sheer aggression required to shoot grouse on the front foot…. just amazing”.

You are welcome to shoot this exciting new facility as part of any lesson at The Royal Berkshire. The Moor is available from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday and 10:00 am- 2:00 pm on Saturdays.  Should you wish to book the Purdey Grouse Moor on an exclusive use basis, this can be arranged.
