Orvis Ratings and Reviews

Top Rated Product

Greystone Castle Sporting Club, TX

What's both unique and compelling about the 2011 Orvis Wingshooting Lodge of the Year is that it can be so many things to so many different sportsmen. To the upland gunner, large fields of sorghum, millet, and switch grass bring memories of great gun dogs, flushing pheasants, bobwhite covey rises, and days in the field with friends. For the big game hunter, it's 6,000 acres that offer some of the best whitetail hunting in the country and over 40 species of exotic game. For the clay shooter, it's the great sporting clays and pyramid 5-stand courses that will test the best of shooters. And for the avid angler, their trophy bass lakes present year round opportunities for tight lines on largemouth and hybrid stripers.
