"My wife and I just "graduated" from the Orvis Shooitng School at Trenton where we got outstanding instruction from Don with excellent support from Chico. We were interested in upland bird hunting. Don evaluated our skill level and structured a program for improvement which worked. He is both a champion shooter and instructor who can make constructive suggstions in a positive manner. It was a great way to spend a weekend."

"Got excellent instruction on wingshooting skills from Don. He geared his advice to my skill level and was very consistent in his approach to teaching the fundamentals. Good, simple, clear communicator. I'm going back for more prior to pheasant season."

two old dogs learn new tricks,
July 31, 2013
By: cornymac
"My brother & I spent two great days with Don leaning the instinctive method of shooting. The beginning of the instruction was spent checking gun fit & eye dominance. Once we established we could shoot where we looked, Don patiently taught us the instinctual method of shooting. Since this is really different from any preconceived ideas how to hit targets or shoot birds, we had to break old habits and learn new ones. But it works! By the end of the instruction I expected - rather than hoped - I'd break the targets.
After years of wingshooting frustration I sought & received a pardon from my lab & springer and look forward to successful bird hunting this fall. Thanks Don!

"Master Coach and National Champion Don Currie took two first timers and in two days we were knocking down clay birds like experienced shooters. He has the ability to communicate corrections with his language in ways that only the most talented sports coaches are able. And the facilities and lodges, food and beverage are as good as it gets."
