Greetings from instructor and gunfitter,
Bryan Bilinski

Planning 2021
Wingshooting Schools!

We are in the early planning stages for the 2021 FIELDSPORT Wingshooting Schools. Deb is currently compiling a list of individuals expressing interest in attending a two-day School. This will assist us in the scheduling of our Wingshooting Schools next year. If interested, please contact Deb at 231-933-0767 or send an email accounting@fieldsport.biz. Hopefully, by the end of 2020 we will announce a School schedule and then we will start taking reservations. Click below to go directly to the page for more information.

All sessions with Bryan Bilinski are scheduled by Appointment Only. Due to weather concerns and considerations in Northern Michigan, gunfitting, try-gun sessions or private lessons are offered & conducted from MAY thru SEPTEMBER. The normal designated days for gunfittings and private lessons are TUESDAY or FRIDAY - starting at 10am. Please call us at least 120-days in advance of when you would like to schedule a session; available days fill up rather quickly!
