Orvis Wing Shooting
Body: 

Like any hand eye sport, success at shooting clay targets or wing shooting requires practice and proper mechanics. Anyone who’s swung a golf club or pitched a baseball knows that the slightest change in mechanics can result in either disaster or tremendous success. Thanks to shooting instructors at Orvis, the wing shooting skills of thousands of waterfowl and upland bird hunters have been improved since 1973, when they opened their first shooting school in Manchester, Vermont.
