Ground birds

What’s a typical day of hunting like at Beulah Wing Shooting?

If you are making use of our accommodation your day will be as follows:

For ground birds we start our days at 6am with breakfast. A PH pick up the hunters in the lounge at 6:30am and take them to one of the fields for the first hunt. Our fields are a variety of sweet thorn bush veld trees  where the challenging Guinea Fowl hide, to the open grasslands where the dogs can work to find the Francolin.

The hunting groups are typically 3-4 in a group and hunt with 2 dogs at a time with what we like to call a walk-up hunt. You can expect to shoot 6x Crested Francolin, 8x Swainson Francolin and 10x Guinea Fowl according to the Provincial bag limit per gun per day. After three hours in the field, the hunters are brought back to the lodge and lunch is served.

After a nap at 3pm the PH pick up the hunters and take them to a new area for the afternoon. We make sure that hunters never hunt the same field twice while they are with us. At 5pm the hunters return to the lodge to enjoy refreshments. Dinner is served from 7pm.

No. 4,5 or 6 shots are ideal for Guinea fowl

Terrain

Our concessions consist from a variety of sweet thorn bush veld trees where the challenging Guinea Fowl hide, to the open grasslands where the dogs can work to find the Francolin. Custom made packages can be arranged.
