After the success of last year’s Estate walk at Allargue, the Grampian Regional Group will be hosting another walk and talk event at the renowned Bognie Estate in Aberdeenshire.
This year’s walk and BBQ promises to be just as exciting and will be led by shoot owner Calvert McKibbin and GWCT advisor Hugo Straker.
Bognie Estate lies in the Deveron valley to the north of Huntly and has a total area of 11,500 acres, including 53 tenant farms. It is a lowground shoot of predominately pheasant with some partridge and duck.
The guided tour will focus on developing a successful and challenging pheasant and partridge shoot, with an emphasis on game crop selection, placement and management. The tour will also incorporate best practice game bird rearing and predator management.
The evening will end with a delicious barbecue.We would like to thank HRN Tractors Insch, Game and Country Ltd, Kings Game Cover & Conservation Crops, and Spratts Game Feeds for kindly sponsoring the barbecue.
