Upstate New York’s Hudson River Valley has a rich sporting tradition that has only gotten more vibrant with passing generations. Orvis Sandanona, located less than two hours from Manhattan in the village of Millbrook, is iconic in the region as the oldest permitted shooting preserve in the United States. The main clubhouse was built during the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, and the four-hundred-acre property has been host to a parade of discerning wingshooters ever since. While celebrating the heritage and tradition upon which it was built, Orvis Sandanona has matured into a thriving, modern shooting facility that is internationally regarded as among the very best.
Orvis Sandanona is open to the public 362 days a year. Visitors can enjoy two unique sporting clays courses, a Five Stand, wobble trap, a thriving retail space, and any number of monthly shooting events to engage in. A regular schedule of Orvis Wingshooting Schools is available by reservation, as are private lessons with Sandanona’s faculty of recognized instructors. Non-shooters, or those taking a break from the day afield, can unwind on the wrap-around porch, or enjoy a meal in the clubhouse dining room. Surrounding croplands, wooded bottoms, and a duck swamp are the setting for Sandanona’s guided field hunts, which are available with Upland Membership.
