Course Description

Our course is geared to take your wing and clay shooting to the next level, offering plenty of time shooting at a variety of target presentations to build your shotgun skills.

With expert and National Sporting Clays Association-certified instructors on staff, you'll learn the basics of shotgun safety, handling and shooting techniques from the best. You'll also learn about the different shotgun types, eye dominance and choke selection. They'll show you proper shooting form for different target presentations along with advanced techniques like ways to obtain a proper target lead.

You'll then spend the rest of the afternoon at the range, where you'll work on stance and shooting with plenty of one-on-one instructor time. Lunch is included.

All necessary shooting equipment is provided.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
