Spanish Partridges at Fuensauco Estate, Madrid

Spain offers some of the greatest Driven Partridge Shooting in the world…

The Partridge Season in Spain extends into March offering our UK Clients a great opportunity to shoot a couple of days back to back after the UK season closes on 1st February each year.

Dalesport have exclusively teamed up with Carlos Merello at Fuensauco Estate, a very privately run shoot, to offer up to 8 Guns the opportunity to shoot some of the finest Driven Partridges in Spain from 10th October through to the 10th March, just 35 minutes outside of the Capital, Madrid.

Fuensauco Estate also offers guests Traditional 5* Accommodation with superb service throughout your stay at their Luxury Hunting Lodge. The shooting and hospitality on the Estate is world class, they use their hilly topography to produce a lovely mixture of quality partridge drives throughout the Estate, providing testing shooting for all the guns across every drive they have.

Guns can expect to shoot at a wide variety of birds from exceptionally high partridges off the hill tops, to low and fast partridges having only seconds to react, to long crossing birds on either side of you to gorgeous 60+ yard crossers in front of you…

From our experience of visiting the shoot, the beauty of Fuensauco is that there is something for everyone and you can pick and choose what you shoot throughout the day, as there is plenty of game about.

The pedegree of this Estate speaks for itself with the King of Spain taking numerous days for his family and friends across each season.
