Definitions of Orvis-Endorsed Wingshooting Operations

Lodges: Each Orvis-endorsed lodge is vetted personally, and on an ongoing basis, by our staff who've traveled and hunted extensively themselves, and have done the work and research for you. Whether you seek ruffed grouse in Maine, or pheasant in South Dakota, you can choose any destination knowing the Orvis brand backs each one.

Grounds: The new Orvis-endorsed Hunting Grounds are shooting and hunting preserves that offer the finest guided bird-shooting experience, but are not lodge and accommodation dependent. These grounds are for the hunter who simply wants a day in the field with access to great coverts, great dogs, and knowledgable and competent guides. Each of these grounds has been inspected by the Orvis staff to ensure the quality of the hunting experience. A variety of offerings from full-day to half-day with lunch and dinner, are available depending on the operation. Most importantly, these operations offer first-class bird shooting encompassing most of the gamebirds in North America from waterfowl to upland.

Guides: Wild birds are not easy to find, but our wingshooting guides specialize in the true wild-bird experience. This is hunting as it was truly meant to be, venturing into untouched habitat and finding birds whose naturally fine-tuned instincts make them remarkably challenging. This is not about numbers of birds, but the experience of spending time with great outdoorsmen, well-trained dogs, in places still untouched by man's heavy hands. This is about finding birds in their natural habitat and experiencing the meaning of fair chase hunting in its purest form, the way it was, the way it should be.
