Wingshooting School

Welcome to the 2018 FIELDSPORT WINGSHOOTING School program.

     If your goal as an upland bird hunter, waterfowler or clay target shooter is to become a more consistent shot and to have a better awareness of how to maintain a proficient, life-long shooting technique, then the FIELDSPORT WINGSHOOTING School programs present the ideal learning venue for you! Your knowledgeable and seasoned team of instructors, Bryan Bilinski and Dale Tate will teach and guide you through the finely tuned FIELDSPORT Method, a complete wingshooting technique that is based on a proper combination of solid fundamentals and reinforced by more than 75 years of collective teaching experience.

     All aspects of proficient shooting are taught. After the basic drill and understanding of the FIELDSPORT Method has been instilled, an instructor will be at your side, coaching you and advising you on every shot. You will shoot hundreds of clay targets from virtually every angle and presentation during your program. A gun fit analysis, and eye dominance test are critical evaluations included in your program.

     The tuition for your school includes both one-on-one and small group instruction, all your clay targets, shotgun shells, gourmet lunches and a copy of the instructional DVD, The Art of Shooting Flying for you to review before your school. Most importantly, we promise that we will make every effort to provide you with a learning and recreational experience that you will never forget.

     Thanks to the input and request from many of our past students, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering a number of new wingshooting teaching concepts and programs. In addition to our tried and true Traditional WINGSHOOTING Schools, which are the perfect venue for both the beginner and intermediate level student, the following new programs are being offered.

     The first new School, introduced in 2016 was a huge success, is the “Super Sport School”. This program will focus on a wider variety of clay target presentations and methods. Also included will be multiple rounds of instructor taught sporting clays on the Cedar Gun Club property.

     The other new School, also introduced in 2016, is the “Upland Bird Hunter’s School”; which will entail more walking and movement while shooting clays, plus some special sessions on our new “Grouse Walk” trail.

We are pleased to announce, in cooperation with Wild Wing Lodge, located near Sturgis, Kentucky, we will be hosting an upland bird hunters Wingshooting School, again this December. This program will be held in conjunction with a series of guided Bobwhite Quail hunts, with only 4 students per school. We are excited to bring this program back!
