“The Fieldsports Concierge” – Orion Sporting Services Limited
Let someone else take the strain… so you can focus on what matters.
The season opens with the usual excitement, anticipation and tradition of the Glorious Twelfth, travelling around the Scottish moorlands and wild English uplands in search of grouse. Roll on September and it's partridges over the eastern fens, or the wild rounded hills and steep valleys of the Cheviot Hills. Then autumn departs and winter arrives, crisp frosty mornings on high Devon pheasants. What a season…
What a lot of driving… what a lot of organising… how am I going to get my guns there? How will I get all my equipment on the plane? What about my dogs, how am I going to get them there?… What about? What about? What a lot to sort out!
We recognise that the hours spent in the grouse butt, on your peg or even on the riverbank are just the tip of the iceberg of any sporting season. There is so much that goes in to making that time count. Orion Sporting Services Limited can look after your needs before, during and after your in-field days; and by doing the work behind the scenes we enable you to stay focused on the right things.
Orion Sporting Services is a dedicated fieldsports concierge and logistics service run by fieldsports enthusiasts for fieldsports enthusiasts. We understand the things that matter, we know that time spent in the field is precious, so making it the best it can be is what we do.
So how can we help you?
We provide a specialist logistics service designed to ensure that your equipment is transported to your venue securely, safely and in fine condition. Don't struggle to get it all there – we can do it all for you.
What makes this service special?
- This is a truly personal service, designed to give you the peace of mind and confidence that your valuables are in the best hands.
- We know the value and importance of what we have been entrusted with and will treat it like our own.
- Our 4x4 transport is equipped specifically for fieldsports – making transfer safe, secure and discrete.
- We operate a truly personal point-to-point service, no transfer between parcel depots and no need to find local gunrooms to send to and from. Less handling means less risk of loss, damage or delay.
- We deliver direct to your end destination, make sure everything is ready for you to enjoy your day and then bring it all back afterwards.
- We can take all of your equipment in one go – shotguns, cartridges, personal items and have them all ready for you on location.
- Our service also extends to fishing – we can carry rods safely and securely as well as your creels, fly boxes, clothing, boots, waders etc.
- We can even transport your dogs – we have secure, ventilated transport for dogs so that they can be with you at all times.
By using us you can forward-ship your items allowing you to travel in more comfort by plane or train. We remove the limitations of standard couriers and we take away the concerns of trying to take shotguns and equipment via domestic airlines or public transport.
Days in the field are precious and we all enjoy our sporting activities, with a little extra attention good days can become the best days.
- Instruction – Don't struggle with high-birds or fast crossers, take an instructor in-field with you. In-field instruction and coaching really can help you improve quickly, ensuring your days are even more enjoyable with the advantage of improving your shooting overall. We can also help prepare you for the coming season by finding an instructor to sharpen your skills.
- Loading – This should not just be the preserve of those big double gun days. A good “stuffer” is not just there to improve your speed on the big drives but can provide good company or even a pointer or two.
- In-field photography – Shoot-day photography is becoming very popular now, and many clients choose to have a photographic record of their party or day. We can arrange this for you.
Servicing & repairs
Sadly, things don't always work as they should – a day can be ruined by a sticky ejector, broken mainspring or misfiring gun. Let us take care of it for you.
With access to some of the finest gunmakers around, with years of experience and skills, we can provide a comprehensive repair and maintenance service for your shotguns.
Remember, prevention is the best cure, let us collect, test and carry out any necessary work on your guns pre-season to make sure the gremlins haven't moved in whilst stored. Don't assume they will be fine, let us make sure of it.
We can carry out any remediation work that may arise through the season, and even source a hire gun for you if needed.
Once the season is finished we can service your shotguns ready to be stored.
Enjoy your season – with us by your side, we know you will.
