Nearly perfect October weather produced unforgettable wingshooting excursions at Orvis-Endorsed Falcon’s Ledge Wingshooting Grounds in Utah last month. Head Guide, Spencer Higa, captured these photos during a hunt with a group of guests who had traveled from across the country to enjoy over 3,000 acres of hunting grounds, cultivated and managed to provide the highest quality bird habitat in the West.

A flushed bird, flying hard from right to left makes for a tough shot. Fortunately, the
well-trained dogs will do the work of retrieval, for in this cover, finding a downed
bird without hunting companion is nearly impossible.
