Within Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, the hilly topography and woodland of Primland provide a premiere setting for Driven Pheasant Shooting that is comparable to the best in the UK.

The Primland Driven Pheasant Shoot features six to nine gun lines with three morning and three afternoon drives, each unique in nature and challenge. Meeting the level of every gunner, Primland features 12 different drives arranged across the ravines of our vast woodland. A few examples of our drives include:

  • Tar Kiln Drive features high birds appearing over the top of tall pine trees right upon the shooter.
  • Lime Pile Drive presents very tall pheasants that shooters can see approaching from a high ridge top.
  • Bunker Hill and Horse Lot Drives offer birds in moderate range.
  • Powell Ridge Drive greatly test the participants shooting skills.

Shooting pegs are located in deep valleys. Each drive lasts about 30 minutes to one hour, with Ringneck pheasants constantly flushed towards the gunning line. Loaders and dog handlers, dressed in proper attire, await to assist you, whether you are shooting one gun or pairs. All of our loaders ensure safe shooting and conduct in addition to taking care of the gunner and their equipment so you never run out of ammo at the peg.

Primland offers Driven Pheasant Shooting from November through March in half day, full day or multiple day packages. Advance reservation and deposit are required.

Instruction, loaner guns and ammunition are all available at the South Gate Reception and Primland Outfitters Shop. Please call 276-222-3800 Or contact us at activities@primland.com to arrange your outing. Bird cleaning and transporting services are available for an additional fee.
