  • How to shoot all types of clays scenarios: going away, crossing, incomers, singles, and doubles
  • Proper stance

The Orvis Wingshooting Schools began in 1973 and were the first of their kind offered in the United States and 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, and proper gun mount.

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

Students are grouped together according to their level of skill and experience, and treated to fully automated instruction areas that provide a full array of clay target angles.
