The Orvis Wingshooting Schools were the first of their kind in the United States, and have been offering shooters the finest wingshooting and hunting instruction for over twenty-five years.
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.
