Our Services

Orvis introduced one of the first sporting clays courses in the country at its Manchester, Vermont Shooting School and now operates two of the finest courses in the country at Sandanona and Pursell Farms. Orvis Hill Country will uphold this tradition beginning with a 15-station course that has been updated with new traps and beautiful new cages. For when you don’t have time to shoot the full course, Orvis Hill Country also offers Five Stand.

Orvis Hill Country offers a bit of everything from shooting at elevation with a 10-mile view, to shooting into cornfields or into the woods.” —Andrew Johnson, Orvis Sporting Clays Manager

The Orvis Wingshooting Schools were the first of their kind offered in the United States, and for over twenty-five years have offered shooters the finest shotgunning 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 shotgun shooting instructors are consummate professionals who are beside you at every shot quietly analyzing and improving your style.

Private instruction is available by reservation. Please contact us at 717-253-9665 or email hillcountry@orvis.com for more information.
