Grouse Virgins?

Red Grouse are acknowledged as the premium game bird in the UK if not the world. The are generally found on the moors of Scotland and Northern England but smaller numbers can still be found in certain areas of Wales and the English midlands.

Grouse season opens on The Glorious Twelfth (12 August) each year and is much anticipated by Guns, shooting estates and local businesses.

Grouse are harvested by driven shooting and walked up shooting over various breeds of gundogs.

Grouse shooting is expensive when compared to other forms of game bird shooting but anyone who has shot Grouse will tell you its money well spent for the life experience it gives you.
