Hunting Days

Hunting season runs from September to March

A thrilling hunting day in the company of some of the most magnificent birds of prey. Upon arrival you will be treated to a full English breakfast at a local Country Inn (Full day hunting only) before you receive tutoring from our hunting expert and falconer. You will learn how to safely handle the birds and get to know their hunting habits. You will have your own hawk for the day and will soon have your hawk flying to your gloved hand on command whilst hunting for rabbits and pheasants with our working ferrets.

Hunting days require a reasonable level of fitness and good strong walking boots/wellies, as we do a lot of walking on the day some of which over rocky terrain. We also ask on full days for guests to bring a light lunch with them.

Alternatively, try our half day: This can either be a morning or afternoon experience and light refreshments are provided.

We are located in West Yorkshire, near the borders with North Yorkshire & Lancashire, UK.

Unfortunately Full day hunting experiences are currently unavailable.
