EUROPE UNITED KINGDOM William Powell Sporting is all about providing an exceptional level of personal service ensuring the client receives the right advice as to the best sporting opportunities for them and then the implementation of this. William Powell Sporting is the UK’s leading Grouse letting agent, specialising in Driven and Walked up Grouse Shooting with sole access to some of the country’s most prolific and picturesque Estates, including the Peak District, North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland & Cumbria through to the Scottish Borders and to the Highlands of Scotland in the far north. Our wealth of knowledge of each Estate gives us the advantage over our competitors when choosing the right Estate to suit the client’s needs and shooting ability. Unlike almost every other Sporting Agent, we actually manage Shooting Estates, so have a far higher level of control over the operation than our competitors do, who merely rent the Moor by the day. We are a Sporting Agency which seeks to accommodate all of our client’s wishes. It is the finer detail which distinguishes us from the others. We have been doing it for over thirty years now and still have some of our original teams returning year after year. Testimonials from overseas Sportsmen are readily available. We offer an array of services from arranging Visitor Shotgun Permits, Airport Collections and Chauffeur Driven 4x4 hire, Gun Hire, Gun Storage, as well as in-the field instruction from the country’s leading Shooting instructors. Not only do we cater for our shooting guests, but we can also provide endless entertainment for non-shooting guests as well. We can arrange a wide variety of bespoke packages for these guests, whether they want a day at the spa, sightseeing or shopping in wonderful Market towns or Cities such as York, Durham or Edinburgh. Whatever it may be, we can arrange it.   The Red grouse is only found in the United Kingdom due to the unique heather habitat found here. It has developed in isolation from other sub species of Willow Grouse, which are widespread in northern parts of Eurasia and North America. Early on in the season, Red Grouse fly in their family group or covey, usually eight to twelve in number. Later on in the season, these merge into packs of thirty to fifty (or more!) grouse, on shoot days and nothing matches the adrenaline rush of seeing such a pack hurtling towards you at speeds of over 70mph. The season starts on the “Glorious 12th” (12th August) and runs through to December 10th, although the majority of Moors will have completed their shooting programme towards the end of October or early November.   Grouse shooting is described as the pinnacle of all game shooting available in the United Kingdom and has to be experienced by every Gun. 

Quite literally William Powell Sporting is the number one Sporting Agency in the UK and with more experience of Grouse Shooting than any other agency.
