The Wilton Estate shoot is run by our experienced and friendly team, led by the Head Keeper, and places the emphasis on quality birds. The primary aim is to provide an enjoyable day’s shooting for the group.

The drives cover a range of areas across the 14,000-acre Estate, from the beautiful rolling chalk downland to the sheltered river valleys, fields and woodland.

Typically, a day’s shoot will begin with the welcome and safety briefing in the Restaurant at Wilton House. There may be up to four drives in the morning, with a mid-morning break, and one or two more drives in the afternoon, depending on the team’s progress (the days range from the smaller 80-bird days to 200-bird days). There are a variety of local venues for well-earned shoot lunches.

Shoot days are available for groups of 8 guns, and non-shooting guests are always welcome. Whilst many of our days are taken by experienced guns, the Estate staff are happy to offer guidance to those who may have spent less time in the field.
The Estate is fortunate in covering parts of the River Nadder and the River Wylye, together with some of the best chalk stream countryside in Wiltshire. The River Nadder runs through Wilton Park, along the south front of the House.

Local fishing clubs lease the beats across the Estate, which afford excellent and varied fishing for members. Regular monitoring is carried out by the Environment Agency, which has reported a good increase in salmon smolts over recent years.

    What a location for a shoot, proper driven game in good numbers on a classic English estate. Hospitality is first class, the shoot is very well organised and the head keeper is a proper gentleman. The shoot is well hosted and you want for nothing. If you can get a day here for your team you really must try it.
