The piney woods of the American Southeast are iconic in wingshooting circles: it is here that bobwhite quail hunting is defined, and the culture of wingshooting reigns supreme. In the heart of all this is Orvis Pursell Farms, a 3,000-acre sporting property comprised of rolling hills, oak and pine forests, native grasslands, and fertile crops, that hosts avid wingshooters 363 days of the year.
Situated just a short drive from Birmingham, Alabama, guests at Pursell Farms can immerse themselves in a southern tradition. Visitors can enjoy the diverse sporting clays course, Five Stand, wobble trap, and comfortable retail space. Those new to the shooting sports or looking to hone their skills can take part in Orvis Wingshooting Schools, arrange a private gunfitting, or seek out private instruction. Pursell is a perfect venue for group or corporate retreats designed specifically to meet the needs of the client. Moreover, Upland Members can shoot pheasants, cupped-winged mallards, or go looking for gentleman bob in the silence of the piney woods. Unique among Orvis Shooting Grounds, Pursell Farms can also accommodate overnight guests in deluxe cottages or at a central hotel, along with five-star culinary experiences, and a host of other recreational activities.
Whether you’re looking for a place to experience sporting clays for the first time—or you simply want to experience the finest in a southern hunting tradition—you will find something to love at Orvis Pursell Farms. We look forward to seeing you soon!
