The Boulware Shooting Society is a unique organization. It is made up of sportsmen who appreciate the style of the old Edwardian pheasant shoots.  Members share a strong interest in traditional British shooting  dress and etiquette, double-barreled shotguns and sporting dogs.  Membership in the Society also includes membership in our older, more conventional Newtown Hunt Club.

Boulware Shooting Society Rules


All persons granted membership into the Boulware Shooting Society must comply with all rules as defined below and all state hunting regulations and laws.



Club dues are paid on an annual basis. Boulware membership dues cover membership in the Newtown Hunt Club in addition to pheasant shoots, walk-up shoots and the club’s annual meeting and dinner. Dues do not include guest fees for pheasant shoots or walk-ups. Payments received after May 1st will include a $100 late fee with an additional $100 assessment each month after.


Cocktail Parties

Club cocktail parties are held the night prior to the pheasant shoots in December and February. It is expected that each member host or contribute to a cocktail party every so often. Club dues contribute $1,500 to the cost of each party while the hosts cover the remainder of the cost.



This club appreciates the style of the old Edwardian pheasant shoots. Only side-by-sides or over-under shotguns allowed. Automatic and pump-action shotguns are not permitted.


Dress Code

Members share a strong interest in traditional British shooting dress. Appropriate attire is coat and tie. Conventional tweed or Barbour type coats are encouraged. Camouflage, upland, denim or sports garb is not permitted. Protective eyewear is mandatory. Blaze orange is not required except during deer season.


Walk-up Hunts

Walk-up hunts must be scheduled in advance. Members and their guests may hunt the farm beginning the Monday after each pheasant shoot. Three guns is the maximum allowed during each hunt. The bag limit is six pheasant per gun.


Children of Members

Children must be at least 16 years old to participate in pheasant shoots. Children ages 16-25 are considered youth status and may shoot alongside their fathers free of charge provided only one gun is shooting at any one time. This option is reserved for children in youth status only. Once children turn 26 years old, they fall under guest status and a guest fee is required.


Guest Shooters

For a fee, a member may bring an experienced guest to a pheasant shoot or a walk-up hunt. The same guest can only attend one pheasant shoot per season.
