Dundee, IL Wingshooting School at McGraw Wildlife

Details

The Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation encompasses 1,231 acres of hardwoods, prairies, lakes, reclaimed gravel pits, and spring-fed streams near the Fox River in Dundee, Illinois, providing an outdoor experience near metro Chicago. In keeping with the founder's mission, hunting, fishing, and being a part of the great outdoors are at the heart of McGraw Wildlife Foundation. The wingshooting school experience offers unscripted adventure and proximity to the natural world: a ringneck pheasant may explode from prairie grass, or a four-pound-plus bass may break the quiet surface of the water. Witness a majestic great blue heron lifting off its perch as dawn breaks; one only has to choose the adventure that suits their desire. Choose our one-day or two-day school.

Orvis operates a world-class shooting school at McGraw's Clay Target Shooting Center, incorporating certified instructors and the Orvis Instinctive Method of Shooting to advance each student's wingshooting skills. Situated in the midst of tall trees and overlooking picturesque Duck Valley Lake, the McGraw Sporting Clays Course is among the finest in the country. In addition to the sporting clays course, state-of-the-art five stand, game clays, and skeet and trap are integrated into the curriculum. The clays offering at McGraw can cater equally to the first-time shooter or to those who have a seasoned passion for wingshooting.
