The Story

Look no further than the Wingshooting School at Orvis Hill Country for exceptional wingshooting instruction offered in either a one- or a two-day program. Situated in the rolling hills of southern Pennsylvania in the town of Blue Ridge Summit, Orvis Hill Country encompasses more than 500 acres devoted to sporting clays and wingshooting pursuits. Spend one or two full days shooting, including, in the two-day school, an afternoon on the sporting clays course accompanied by experienced Orvis shotgun shooting instructors. From first-timers to accomplished wingshooters, everyone is welcome at the Orvis Hill Country shotgun shooting school: if you've ever had the desire to raise a fine, handcrafted shotgun to your cheek and fire a perfect shot, there's no better place to learn how.

The Orvis Wingshooting Schools were the first of their kind in the United States, and for over twenty-five years have offered shooters the finest wingshooting and hunting instruction available anywhere in the world.

Based on the English Churchill method, our instinctive approach to shotgunning offers both the novice and the seasoned veteran a complete shooting system that can be used for upland and waterfowl hunting and sporting clays. The fundamentals of the Orvis system include stance, footwork, gun handling, swing, visual concentration, proper gun mount, and correct fit of the gun stock.

The Orvis shooting instructors are consummate professionals who are beside you at every shot quietly analyzing and improving your style.

In addition to firing hundreds of rounds of ammunition, each student participates in classroom instruction on basic shotgun safety, shotshell selection, and shotgun patterning. Students are grouped together according to their level of skill and experience, and treated to a uniquely designed, fully automated instruction area that provides a full array of clay target angles.

The tuition includes comprehensive shooting instruction, all targets and ammunition, lunches each school day, and a copy of the Orvis Wingshooting Handbook. The use of an Orvis shotgun is available at no additional charge if desired. A complimentary gun fitting to establish and record individual stock dimensions is also available for students participating in the two-day school at this location.

Both 1 & 2 Day Schools offer small class sizes – a 4:1 student-to-instructor ratio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Place to Hone Your Skills Took the Two-Day Wingshooting School. Awesome experience. There were seven of us divided into two groups based on experience. We had one instructor for my group of three. They introduce the instinctive pointing method of shotgun shooting emphasizing stance, gun mounting and concentration on the target. We shot at clay pigeons from various stations with a great cross section of differing shots. We did A LOT of shooting both days working on the fundamentals. The instructors were incredibly positive in their feedback promoting a great learning environment. It was the most fun I've had on a weekend in a long time despite it raining part of the day on Sunday. I got to shoot 12, 20, and 28 gauge shotguns giving me a good feel for the differences. We couldn't do the gun fitting due to the rain, but they offered me to come back another day to be fitted. I was able to go back three days later and be fitted and I ended up buying one of the Orvis ELOS D2 shotguns just like the ones I shot in the course. An outstanding gun! The entire staff was awesome and just a great overall experience. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST POSSIBLY ONE OF THE GREATEST PLACES ON EARTH Been to Blue Ridge Summit 5 times 1st when it opened 1st year anniversary and 3 other occasions, every time is better than the last ! guides that drive you thru the course in the golf carts actually help to point out what you could do better not what you are doing wrong.The clothing store and the gun room are always fully stocked with all the latest items. The staff is always very knowledgeable inside as well as out in the field . I love bringing my family and friends there they simply walk away amazed ! . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience Attended 2-day wingshooting school the weekend of 10/19/19, and had a wonderful experience. Instructors were excellent, focusing on both my strengths and weaknesses, and at the same time having fun. After watching me shoot, they immediately starting working on skill improvement, step by step. Saturday we shot a LOT, and by the end of the day I saw great improvement in my shooting and my confidence level greatly improved. With Sunday being a very rainy day, we concentrated on gunfitting, and they made arrangements for us to come back Monday morning to shoot the sporting clays. Sporting clays were very challenging, but a lot of fun. I loved it and it was my favorite part of the weekend and really put our skills to the test. I came home and went shooting a couple of days later and impressed my husband with my improvement and my confidence. I highly recommend this shooting school.
