Do you accept the Royal Berkshire Grouse Challenge?

The most exciting and realistic way to practice Grouse shooting.

The Royal Berkshire Grouse Challenge

This special competition celebrates the much anticipated start of the grouse season and runs for four weeks, commencing on 4th August, running until 29th August.

Taken as part of any guided round or lesson, this 50 bird competition is made up of two 25 bird sequences; one in the famous J&B Grouse Butt and the other on our new Purdey Grouse Moor.

Get your eye in for the season or simply enjoy a bit of fun with friends on these incredibly realistic targets. With clays simulating coveys, driven birds beneath your feet and birds going away, our grouse butts face you with every possible scenario that you would find on The Moors.

You are more than welcome to shoot with either an over and under or a side by side.

In addition, we are offering some wonderful prizes to anyone who takes this challenge on!

Our four weekly winners will each receive 250 Gamebore Dark Storm Quad Seal cartridges and a bottle of Taittinger champagne.

Our overall highest score will receive a morning for four people here at the Royal Berkshire enjoying all that our grounds have to offer, followed by lunch in our beautiful Farmhouse.

Purdey are gifting their bestselling Bembridge Tweed Shooting Vest to the top scoring entrant shooting with a side by side shotgun.

Please note that this is open to experienced shots with their own guns only.

Simply call 01491 672900 to book your lesson or guided round and let us know that you want to shoot the ‘Grouse Challenge’.

Proper preparation is essential for any day on the Moor!
