Don’t want to choose just one shooting activity for your stag/hen party or works day out? Then don’t! If you really want to have it all, this is the shooting package for you. Try your hand at 5 unique and individual styles of shooting activity to help your celebrations get off with a real bang.
They all take place at our stunning country estate in Derbyshire on the southern tip of the Peak District. It’s a private estate so it’s not open to the general public. You have to make a reservation to be allowed on site. And there’s a clubhouse on site with a bar for afterwards. Nice.
Here’s the full list of the shooting activities that you’ll be pitting your wits against in the half day session –
1. Axe Throwing
2. Clay Pigeon Shooting using Traditional Shotguns or Pump Action Shotguns
3. .22 Calibre Rifle Shooting
4. Crossbow Shooting
5. Traditional Archery
You can swap any of the above for Pistol Shooting if preferred (we’ll need to know this in advance.)
So let’s run through the order. You’ll be split into teams to make it interesting, and of course we’ll score the whole thing for you too, so we’ll sort the crack shots from the lackluster shots. Your group will get to experience at least 10 shots per person on each and every activity.
Hugely popular these days, this sport isn’t about brute force. It’s all in the wrist action! Step up to the log style targets and get ready. They look super cool and are very accurate in the right hands. Stags and hens alike love this one.
Clay Pigeon Shooting
When it comes to the Clay Pigeon Shooting activity, you’ll be shooting at our clays whizzing through the air in front of you. But what type of shotgun will you choose to get the job done? Will you go for our traditional 12 bore shotguns, or do you prefer the idea of taking on our Mosberg 500 & Remington 870 pump action shotguns, as used by the military and the police.
With the .22 Rifles, we’ll take you over to our huge shooting range on the estate (you can see a picture of it above) to let you get to grips with shooting proper .22 calibre bullets. And those targets are a long way out, so this really sorts the average from the great.
Then it’s onto trying our Crossbows. These are not easy to master. They take control and effort. But when you hit the target with the bolts (that’s the name for the arrows) it’ll get a shout of appreciation from your fellow group members.
And finally onto our Traditional Archery Range, where you’ll find yourself at the business end of our magnificent longbows. Don’t for a minute think this is tame. It takes great skill to get the most from our bows, but as always we’re here on hand to help every step of the way.
I used HDK events when organising my friends long-awaited hen party in Bakewell at the weekend. Greg was fantastic from the word go and had the patience of a saint supporting me throughout the booking process! If you want an easily organised, unique trip, organised in a chilled out environment, Hard Days Knight is the company for you.
Amazing from first contact with Greg to leaving the property on the final day. Organising a large group weekend away was difficult after the country reopened after Covid but Greg made everything seem easy. From finding us the perfect location for a house, booking us a great event to the finer details of pub/restaurant recommendations.
A fun filled and exhilarating experiece!! It comes with our highest recommendation! We had an incredible time!! One of our best experiences and worth every penny!! Thank you to all the Team....it was a morning to remember!
