The Teasses Shooting Club

By Game, Sporting

2021 marks an important year in the calendar at Teasses as we celebrate 25 years since the current owners purchased the Estate and made it their home [you can find out more about the last 25 years at Teasses here]. Hand in hand with the purchase of the Estate, came the establishment of a very successful shoot at Teasses, which has grown through the years in the care of Kenny, our Head Gamekeeper.

To acknowledge this important milestone it seemed only appropriate that Teasses should have its very own Shooting Club. The Club was launched in recognition of the kind support of our clients many of whom return, year after year, to enjoy the sport and the unique company of “shooting enthusiasts”. The Club strives to create an opportunity for like-minded people to connect and build a community of country pursuits aficionados.

Teasses hosted its Inaugural Shooting Club Day on Saturday 22nd May – and we could have not asked for a better day indeed! After weeks of interminable rain, hail, frost and wind, the sun was shining upon Teasses, lifting everyone’s spirits. The Inaugural Day was the perfect opportunity for the team to showcase our Simulated Game Days, an activity many of our members hadn’t had the chance to experience before and thoroughly enjoyed!

Simulated Game Days offer out-of-season practice (and fun!), as well as guaranteed targets. Club Members were kept in the “hot seat” – especially when someone decided to turn up the traps’ speed on the second drive! Members shot in pairs, with one shooting, one re-loading to spread the enjoyment and encourage participation. Barrels ran hot and luckily, extra cartridges were on hand.

We are proud that the Inaugural Day was a success as well as a testament to all of the team’s hard work – on the day, but also in the last 25 years.

Gamekeeping minutes – At the ‘lochan’

By Sporting, Teasses Estate, Visits

Our Gamekeeping Team have been busy replenishing our ‘lochan’ with trout, to provide sporting opportunities for our fishing syndicate and occasional day rods. Our beautiful trout is sourced from Belhaven Trout Company  and has been keeping our fishermen happy year or year. In the video below you can appreciate the water clarity of our ‘lochan’ and catch a glimpse of our wonderful views and wildlife.

You will see Jordan slowly and gently releasing the trout into the ‘lochan’ to limit the shock the fish might experience when changing environment, water temperature and PH levels. This is very important at Teasses.

Kenny, our Head Gamekeeper, also brings you some footage of our resident toad population. After emerging from their overwintering sites, toads tend to return to ancestral breeding ponds along the same routes each year – they have definitely come out in large numbers this Spring.

Our fishing season at Teasses runs from February to October and the longer and sunny Spring days offer a great opportunity to head out on the ‘lochan’. For more information on our fishing syndicate and day rods, please get in touch at [email protected]. The ‘lochan’ is in view of Hall Teasses, our self-catering lodge – a perfect combination if you are looking for a sporting staycation.
