Details
Just minutes from our flagship store, along the famed Battenkill, you'll find the Manchester Wingshooting School, a world-class custom shooting instruction course staffed with professional shotgun shooting instructors ready to help turn novices into skilled shooters, and skilled shooters into experts. Our Manchester shotgun shooting instruction has been turning out excellent wingshooters for generations. This shotgun shooting school and upland hunting school is your opportunity to learn from the best. Manchester, Vermont is known for its breathtaking scenery, beautiful country roads, and rustic covered bridges. Choose to attend either our one-day or two-day school. Each school includes lunch, all shells, use of an Orvis gun, eye and ear protection, and custom gunfitting.

You'll cover it all at the Manchester, Vermont 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 Winghooting 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.

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.
