Five shooting activities at a private country estate in Derbyshire.

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.

Axe Throwing
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.

.22 Rifles
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.

Traditional Archery
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.

All the fun with no drama

Massive thanks to Greg and HDK for organising a great stag weekend. Greg was easy to deal with, understood our needs and made everything seamless from the accommodation to the activities and pub crawl. Highly recommended!

Worried about organising a stag do for 28 people? Well don't be, just contact Greg he'll do it for you. Numerous activities available, transport and accommodation all sorted and all great quality. Helped to give my son a fantastic stag party and memorable weekend

My immense thanks to Greg and Hard Days Knight for organising me a fantastic stag do 25-27 March 2022. Unlike some of the national stag do agencies, HDK offer a personal service and really know the detail of all of the activities they offer and on the accomodation options. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much and no question too silly. I really felt assured that I was in great hands with someone who put my mind at rest that they knew what they were doing, and the proof really was in the pudding, as all 15 of my group had a fantastic time.
