2018 Driven Bird Shoot | Scotland
Noted as the sport of Kings, European driven bird shooting is steeped in tradition and elegance, making it one of the most coveted experiences for the traveling sportsman. Orvis is thrilled to offer a singular opportunity to shoot in classic style, among the castles and dramatic landscapes of the Scottish countryside.
This five-day trip, hosted by Lars Magnusson of Blixt & Co., will highlight three-days of driven pheasant and partridge presented by Mr. Wilson Young and his team, justifiably recognized as one of the premiere institutions for sport shooting within Scotland and the UK. Over the course of the trip, guns will see varied presentations at high testing birds that will thrill even the most experienced shooter. Many of the drives are well known throughout the entire shooting world and are nestled in stunning countryside.
This all-inclusive trip lodges guests in the lovely private home at Lylestane. The house features all of the modern conveniences and comforts, while maintaining an aesthetic in keeping with tradition. House Manager Carolyn Campbell and her staff look after guests with attention and care; there is always a warm welcome. Cuisine is the work of local chef Maureen Rennie, who specializes in gourmet game cooking.
Dates & Pricing
Lars' formal education in the shooting sports began in 1993 at Sweden's first shooting school. Two years later he was recruited by the West London Shooting School, one of the world's oldest and most prestigious. During his tenure at the WLSS, Lars became a gun fitter for many of London's best gun makers.
In 2003, Lars was approached by Griffin & Howe, one of the premier gun companies in the United States. He accepted a position as Managing Director of their shooting school at Hudson Farm in Andover, New Jersey. He held this position until 2006 at which time he ventured even further West to assist in the establishment of a private shooting estate in Idaho.
In 2008, Lars and his wife Jennifer established Blixt & Co. and began the pursuit to bring authentic Driven Shooting to America. In 2009 Blixt & Co. secured the sporting rights on 2,200 acres in Idaho, which became the catalyst to test the vision of bringing traditional Driven Shooting to America. Over the next four seasons, the Blixt & Co. team proved that not only is traditional Driven Shooting possible in North America, but an authentic experience that make customers return again and again.
