Details

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.

Must be at least 12 years old to participate.

You'll cover it all at the Blue Ridge Summit, Pennsylvania Wingshooting School:

  • Basic shotgun safety
  • How to mount a shotgun so you will shoot exactly where you're looking
  • How to shoot all types of clays scenarios: going away, crossing, low incomers, singles, and doubles
  • Proper stance
  • Proper shotgun fit

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.
