ORVIS SANDANONA WINGSHOOTING SCHOOL
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 wingshooting and hunting instruction available anywhere in the world. We offer both 1 and 2 Day curriculums, both designed to work with any skill level.
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.
Must be at least 12 years old to participate.
