Waterfowl Shooting

 Waterfowl is shot over decoys from natural and man-made blinds. Morning shoots are generally on cultivated pastures or recently reaped maize and wheat fields. Afternoon shoots take place around dams. Bag limits are generous and a gun can expect to shoot, depending on the time of the year, between 10 and 20 waterfowl per day.
Group sizes of between 3 and 6 guns can be accommodated. Accommodation varies from basic guest cottages and guest houses in close proximity of the shooting areas. Good food, comfortable accommodations and hot water on tap is expectable.
Karoo Wingshooting has waterfowl concessions in excess of 15,000 hectares. A typical day will commence with an early morning wake up call. After a quick cup of coffee and toast we will depart for the morning's shooting session. After placing the decoys around the pre-positioned blinds, shooting will commence before daybreak until roughly 11am. Snacks and beverages will be available during the shooting. Back to your lodgings, you will be entertained to a hearty lunch, and siesta time to catch up on some early morning lost sleep. 3pm will have us departing for our afternoon shoot till dark. The day's shoot will conclude at dark with a photo session of the day's spoils. Dinner will be served at 7.30 pm and the day's excitement will be relived around a comfortable fireplace until bedtime. Transportation to the shooting area will be by means of a 4WD vehicle.
