The Orvis Shooting Grounds have twelve different clay shooting stations that vary in style to give you practice in real hunting situations. Within each station, there are different levels of difficulty to shoot from.
“We have three levels of stations – hunting, member and apex course,” said Blake Garrett, Orvis Shooting Grounds General Manager. “Hunting being the easiest as far as level of difficulty, the members course is middle of road and the apex is the most difficult.”
The grounds also have wing shooting where you can hunt dove, duck, quail and pheasant within a preserved season.
“It’s prime habitat for the birds that we have out here to hunt,” said Garrett. “It provides a really good experience for our guest to enjoy a day out in the field.”
Fly fishing is another sport offered on the property.
“It’s very peaceful,” said Chris Edlin, Sporting Services Manager. “It is a little different from regular fishing. For me, I’ve been fishing my entire life. Once I started fly fishing I haven’t stopped. Do I like it better than regular fishing? Most definitely.”
Orvis Shooting Grounds is located 386 Talladega Springs Rd., Sylacauga, AL 35151.
