Though this years pheasant shooting season has been extended until the end of February, Dundrum Gun club has decided that in the interest of birds which have already come through a very harsh Winter that there will be no Pheasant shooting on any of the club preserves during this time. We would ask all members, non members and in particular Landowners to please take note. We are in the process of restocking with adult Cock and Hen pheasants and will be releasing same around the Club area in early March as well as releasing pheasant poults later in the summer. In the last number of years we have spent over 4,000 euro in restocking programmes with Mallard and pheasant releases and we hope to continue the same in the coming years. We thank landowners for their continued support and would urge them to be aware of  who is shooting their lands, Gun club members are all fully insured under the NARGC compensation fund for personal accident and third party cover. Gun club signs are available free to any Landowner who wishes to erect same, contact any officer for details.
