The Story

Learn the art of wingshooting in a traditional Old South setting. Located just 30 minutes east of Tallahassee, these historic shotgun shooting grounds feature fully-automated traps, a high tower, and a quail walk. The expert instructors at Mays Pond place particular emphasis on pass shooting instruction for quail, dove, and waterfowl hunting. Wingshooting school and shotgun shooting classes are held in a beautifully restored one-room Georgia schoolhouse, where catered lunches are served daily. Choose our one-day or two-day school.
