Introduction by Frank Boddy of Ripley Sporting
The Mountgarret Shoot is set in 2,000 acres of rolling North Yorkshire countryside just north of Harrogate in North Yorkshire.
The Shoot is steeped in history and tradition when as far back as records show it has been run as the Mountgarret Family Shoot. Its heyday was in the Victorian/Edwardian era. I understand it was then a wild grey English partridge and hand reared pheasant shoot. It would be wonderful to bring back English grey partridge but sadly the ever increasing number of raptors together with modern farming methods makes this near impossible. However we are releasing a few grey partridge into some quiet corners where we can leave them undisturbed.
