Locally, some of the best shooting is available, and at Highbullen we are able to cater for parties, teams or individuals. At the nearby Broadmoor Shooting Ground, Richard Chappel, the ex-England international shot, offers clay pigeon shooting, and can provide guns, cartridges and insurances if required. Gun storage and dog kennels can also be arranged if needed at Highbullen.
Stalking available in the local area is part of the Deer Management Programme in North and Mid-Devon and covers more than 10,000 acres. The stalking principally offers red, fallow and roe deer, with one local estate offering wild boar. All guns must be collected from the hotel and will be accompanied by a guide at all times. Before you go stalking you must hold a British Deer Society or BASC membership, insurance will also be needed, as well as a firearms certificate.
