Country Sports


There are a number of traditional country pursuits that are part of the way of life for many living in the Exmoor community; these include horse riding, fishing, hawking, shooting and hunting. For more information about these activities and where you can do them can be found on the Country Sports South West website.

Game Shooting on Exmoor

Exmoor has particularly suitable topography for pheasant shooting.  Deeply incised valleys provide opportunities for high pheasant shoots  and these shoots have attained a world class reputation in recent years, attracting high-spending visitors who contribute to the economy of Greater Exmoor.  In 2006 ENPA and the Greater Exmoor Shooting Association commissioned an independent study which gathered the information about how much money was being spent on Exmoor as a result of game shooting activity.
