Driven Pheasant & Partridge shooting in Italy

A selection of some of the most traditional places for driven Bird Shooting in Italy

Traditional Pheasant hunting in Italy

When I think of birdshooting in Italy, I think of Hemingway. His descriptions about the Duck & Bird shooting in his book “Across the River and into the Trees” have always fascinated me…

The English-style driven pheasant, duck & partridge shooting in northern Italy has a long Tradition & history and is still one of the most exclusive hunting events you can experience in our days. Perfect organized hunts and drives paired with the famous food and wines of Italy makes it an unforgettable shooting experience for bird hunting enthusiasts from all over the world.

The pheasant season starts on the third Sunday of September and ends end of February, with Tuesday and Fridays being silent as these are legally non-hunting days. Through our partner in Italy we have access to three fantastic Estates  - so we can cater for every need and wish you might have.

The fields, small forests, vineyards, rivers and ponds make the perfect habitat for driven pheasant & partridge shooting as well as duck shooting and hunting with pointing dogs.  Accommodation is in the old family palace from the 14th century or in the beautiful hunting lodge nearby.
